NAME
       pdf2ps - Ghostscript PDF to PostScript translator

SYNOPSIS
       pdf2ps [ options ] input.pdf [output.ps]

DESCRIPTION
       pdf2ps  uses  gs(1) to convert the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF)
       file "input.pdf" to PostScript(tm) in "output.ps".  Normally the output
       is  allowed to use PostScript Level 2 (but not PostScript LanguageLevel
       3) constructs; the -dLanguageLevel=1 option  restricts  the  output  to
       Level  1,  while  -dLanguageLevel=3 allows using LanguageLevel 3 in the
       output.

FILES
       Run "gs -h" to find the location of Ghostscript documentation  on  your
       system, from which you can get more details.

VERSION
       This document was last revised for Ghostscript version 9.22.
