[8/9] update: purifyeps (12489 -> 12498) ... The following files
should be removed due to the removal of purifyeps,
but are part of another package, too.
texmf/doc/man/man1/a2ping.1 - a2ping
texmf/doc/man/man1/a2ping.pdf - a2ping
tlmgr show purifyeps
ShortDesc: Make EPS work with both LaTeX/dvips and pdfLaTeX.
LongDesc: While pdfLaTeX has a number of nice features, its primary
shortcoming relative to standard LaTeX+dvips is that it is unable to
read ordinary Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files, the most common
graphics format in the LaTeX world. Purifyeps converts EPS files into
a purifiedâ form that can be read by both LaTeX+dvips and pdfLaTeX.
The trick is that the standard LaTeX2e graphics packages can parse
MetaPost-produced EPS directly. Hence, purifyeps need only convert an
arbitrary EPS file into the same stylized format that MetaPost
(so it was not removed)
