File type: Encapsulated PostScript
The DSC-conforming PostScript document EPS or Encapsulated PostScript comes with extra limitations designed to make the use of the EPS files as graphics file formats.
The files with the EPS file extension are reasonably predictable and self-contained. The PostScript documents capable of describing the images or drawings could be placed in a different PostScript document.
A file saved with the format could contain a BoundingBox DSC comment that describes a rectangle containing an image referenced by the EPS file. Programs could utilize this information in laying out the page even when they are not able to submit the PostScript inside directly.
The page description language or PDL PostScript is used in describing the graphical content and text of the page. It could also be employed in defining the appearance of text and graphics for print and screen. The said language had been developed by Adobe and has since undergone a number of updates and revisions.
