EPS Files
Encapsulated PostScript Files

EPS is a data directory which contains examples of "Encapsulated PostScript" files. They are a special kind of PostScript file, restricted to describing a single page. They are thus suitable for use as an included graphic inside a document. TeX files, for instance, can use a special environment called EPSFIG to include a graphic figure stored in an EPS file.
