# Image has invalid character? Trouble with graphicx

I'm sort of stumped on this one. I'm trying to include some graphics that I created with Stata in a document. I'm using pdfLaTeX and graphicx. When I try to compile, I get the error message:

ERROR: Text line contains an invalid character.

My file is very simple:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}

\input{jpeg/math.eps.jpeg}
\end{document}


I've tried using EPS, JPEG and PDF with the pdftex option for graphicx.

Any ideas?

Use \includegraphics{...}, not \input{..}. And also remove the dot between math and eps in the file name. –  Ulrike Fischer Mar 20 '12 at 15:18
I knew I was doing something stupid. Thank you. The dot I think is ok because that's the file name. –  PaulB Mar 20 '12 at 15:19
nope, you were right - it doesn't like the .eps.jpeg file name. –  PaulB Mar 20 '12 at 15:21
Why are you calling graphicx twice? Also, with an up-to-date system, you usually don't need to include a pdftex option or the like; I think there might actually be reasons not to do it. –  doncherry Mar 20 '12 at 16:44
It is useful to read the package documentation (or at least open it). You can find the documentation file at the web address ctan.org/pkg/<package_name> so for graphicx it is ctan.org/pkg/graphicx –  tohecz Mar 21 '12 at 0:13

As Ulrike Fisher points out in comments: Use \includegraphics{...}, not \input{..}. And also remove the dot between math and eps in the file name.
