Loop to convert pdf files into eps

December 2016




Issue


I have a folder that contains a lot of pdf files that I want to convert them to .eps. I found how to do this conversion with the command:


 "pdftops -eps [file].pdf"



But how to set up a loop to perform the operation on all my files?

From the directory containing the PDF


for file in *.pdf
do
pdftops -eps "${file}"
done


Thanks to jipicy for this tip
