How to save output of LaTeX file as .eps file rather than .pdf? I want to put a figure in LateX file and enter some text in it. Then I want to save output as .eps format rather than in form of .pdf. Any suggestions in this regard?
You can use
latex rather than
dvips -E ...
will try to generate an EPS file from the resulting dvi.
pdflatex then there are several tools available to convert pdf to EPS (almost all wrappers around ghostscript) imagemagic convert for example.
Instead of letting LaTeX do it for you, I recommend generating a pdf file first, then convert it to eps file with cmd
pdftops -eps filename.pdf
If your cmd tells you
-bash: pdftops: command not found
You should then do the following
$ brew update $ brew install poppler
As for generating the pdf file, please refer to this answer.
