# [Tex/LaTex] Why can’t pdflatex print EPS figures

epsgraphicspdftex

The images in my paper are in EPS format. If I execute pdflatex to get a PDF version of my paper, the figures won't appear. I have to typeset using the latex command, and then convert the DVI file to PDF using dvipdf.

Why doesn't pdflatex support EPS figures?
