[OS X TeX] EPS to PDF--en masse?

I've a few hundred EPS files, produced by Mathematica, that I want to 
include in some documents I'm LaTeXing.  The files are in batches of 
several dozen, serially named.  I can convert them to PDFs by dropping 
them on the TeXShop icon.  However, in the numbers I want to make the 
conversions, that's very inconvenient--TeXShop wants to open a window 
for each, and then I have to close the windows or shut down TexShop and 
restart it for the next batch.  Moreover, it seems to take forever if I 
drop more than about 20 of them on the icon at once.

Neither Adobe Distiller nor Lemke's Graphic Converter does as good a 
job--the quality PDFs thet produce is inferior to that of those 
produced by TeXShop.

Is there a way to script this so it'll run in the 
background--preferably without opening a window for each picture?
