How does EPS which is generated by the Squeak classes relate to the PDF document format?
(Answer text moved from page SPDF)
The answer may be in the Portable Document Format Reference Manual Version 1.3 (this site has several versions of the PDF reference for download; fix for PDF reference needed)
Paragraph 2.3.1 states that
- Like Postscript PDF "draws" in a turtle graphic like manner objects (text, graphics) on a page.
- The page marking operators are similar to the operators in Postscipt. However PDF is not a programming language with procedures, variables and control constructs.
- A PDF file is well structured; it is more like a database.
