eps2pdf(source, dest, crop, append, gray, quality)
%EPS2PDF  Convert an eps file to pdf format using ghostscript
%
% Examples:
%   eps2pdf source dest
%   eps2pdf(source, dest, crop)
%   eps2pdf(source, dest, crop, append)
%   eps2pdf(source, dest, crop, append, gray)
%   eps2pdf(source, dest, crop, append, gray, quality)
%
% This function converts an eps file to pdf format. The output can be
% optionally cropped and also converted to grayscale. If the output pdf
% file already exists then the eps file can optionally be appended as a new
% page on the end of the eps file. The level of bitmap compression can also
% optionally be set.
%
% This function requires that you have ghostscript installed on your
% system. Ghostscript can be downloaded from: http://www.ghostscript.com
%
%IN:
%   source - filename of the source eps file to convert. The filename is
%            assumed to already have the extension ".eps".
%   dest - filename of the destination pdf file. The filename is assumed to
%          already have the extension ".pdf".
%   crop - boolean indicating whether to crop the borders off the pdf.
%          Default: true.
%   append - boolean indicating whether the eps should be appended to the
%            end of the pdf as a new page (if the pdf exists already).
%            Default: false.
%   gray - boolean indicating whether the output pdf should be grayscale or
%          not. Default: false.
%   quality - scalar indicating the level of image bitmap quality to
%             output. A larger value gives a higher quality. quality > 100
%             gives lossless output. Default: ghostscript prepress default.

% Thank you to Fabio Viola for pointing out compression artifacts, leading
% to the quality setting.
% Thank you to Scott for pointing out the subsampling of very small images,
% which was fixed for lossless compression settings.
