Strip Excess Postscript Border
Some applications (e.g., Splus) seem to place extra white space around the encapsulated PostScript that they generate. This is a problem when importing into other packages, such as LaTeX. A simple solution is:
$ ps2eps < original.eps > new.eps
This determines an accurate bounding box and trims the image to that box.
