I am considering the following facts about the
- It only takes PostScript (PS) or Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files as image input;
- It produces only DVI files as output, which can be converted in PS file;
- It understand only T1 type fonts, which is a PostScript font format.
Why this compiler seems to be so strongly bound to PostScript? Is there a historical reason? And why the other more recent compilers (
lualatex) do not have this binding anymore?
