EPS editor for Linux?


Hello, I am trying to use only Linux without the need to use Microsoft Windows. It is not very easy to find all software I need. I have several graphics that are saved as EPS format. What are the good EPS editors for Linux? I found only Inkscape, which is mostly made by Windows community. Is there a EPS editor, which is programmed on C++ software, which isn't speedness? Thx

Tell us more about this, as many of us are unprepared.

EPS is still in widespread use, but it is essentially an outdated file format that no longer evolves.

For exchanging logos or drawings, it has been replaced by the native file formats of Adobe applications.Adobe has made it easy to drop a native Illustrator or Photoshop file in an InDesign document. Given that most people work with the Adobe Creative Cloud or Creative Suite software, EPS no longer makes sense as an intermediate file format.
For exchanging complete pages or advertisements, it has been replaced by PDF (just like PostScript itself is also being phased out and replaced by PDF).
Then, try some of the intelligence conveyed on Wikipedia:
3D Turbo
Adobe Acrobat
Adobe Flash (in later versions, it is a hidden feature)
Adobe Illustrator
Adobe InDesign
Adobe Photoshop (later versions)
Affinity Designer
Autodesk AutoCAD
CorelDRAW
Cytoscape
FlexiSign
Ghostscript
GIMP (requires Ghostscript)
GNU Octave
IDL
ImageMagick (requires Ghostscript)
Inkscape (requires Ghostscript)
InPage
Ipe
LaTeX
LibreOffice Draw
Macromedia Freehand
Maple
Mathematica
MathType
Matlab
OmniGraffle
OpenOffice.org Draw
PhotoImpact X3
QuarkXPress
R (programming language)
Scribus
Sketch
Stata
Xara
Xfig
And finally ...
use Inkscape and all will be fine.

Thank you for https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Encapsulated_PostScript.

I think that I will stick to Inkspace. It just works. I missed a bit CorelDraw.
