A Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) file may given in a special binary format to support the inclusion of a thumbnail. This file format, commonly known as DOS EPS format starts with a binary header that contains the positions of the possible sections: – Postscript (PS); – Windows Metafile Format (WMF); and – Tag Image File Format (TIFF). The PS section must be present and either the WMF file or the TIFF file should be given. The package provides a Perl program that will extract any of the sections of such a file, in particular providing a ‘text’-form EPS file for use with (La)TeX.
