Programmatically convert PostScript and EPS files to PDF

Adobe PDF Converter* is a PDF API which allows developers to quickly and easily convert Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) and PostScript (PS) files to Adobe’s Portable Document Format (PDF). The industry-standard Adobe Distiller and Distiller Server are themselves built upon PDF Converter SDK; and now this PDF API is available separately to application developers.
