    Default EPS Rendering Library

    I'm looking for a free library which is capable of rendering EPS files.

    Does such a thing exist for the Mac?

    Cocoa? I'm pretty sure that NSImage knows what to do with EPS files.

    I need my code to be able to run in Carbon and on MacOS 9 too.

    It's nice to know the requirements in advance ;)

    Have you looked at the ImageMagick library? I haven't, but it claims to
    work on OS X and 9 and has support for importing EPS amongst other
    things. It's an open source library with an Apache style licence.

    Hi James,

    Sorry for getting into this thread late, but last I looked,
    ImageMagick just called Ghostscript for PS/EPS and PDF. OTOH it may
    be instructive to see how ImageMagick does the integration, especially
    on MacOS Classic.

    What exactly are you trying to achieve? I wrote a small C++ library
    ages ago to create EPS figures for inclusion in mathematical papers.
    It is not very powerful, but it works fine for what I want to do with
    it and I still use it regularly today. You can get the source code
    together with a bunch of examples at

    I know that part of the code is clumsy, I wrote that library mainly
    to learn C++ ;-)

    I have an application used by people in the printing business.

    I'm using QuickTime to import images, but the most requested feature is
    support for importing EPS files, which QuickTime doesn't support :(

    Preview uses Core Graphics to do its image decoding (Core Image actually),
    and since Core Graphics is OSX only this wont work as a solution.
    I would recommend GhostScript. I know a few people who use this, and it
    seems to work well.
    That is until you can switch over to OSX and use Core Graphics.
