multiple eps to single pdf

I have an alias in my .cshrc to combine multiple eps into a single pdf

alias me2p  'gs -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress -sEPSCrop -sOutputFile=\!*'
so when I do

me2p out.pdf *.eps
which takes all the eps I specific into a single pdf. This is great except I have to hit return in gs for every eps I include. i.e. lots of

>>showpage, press <return> to continue<<

Basically I just want me2p to generate the pdf without me having to confirm every eps. I've tried -dBATCH and -dNOPAUSE but they don't seem to help.

Any suggestions?

Hi -

"-dBATCH" and "-dNOPAUSE" should be the correct options. For grins, you could also try "-dNOPROMPT":

Strong suggestion(s):

1. Forget about your "me2p" alias (at least for starters).

Just type the command directly (or invoke it directly from a little one-line shell script) until you're sure it's working the way you want it to.

2. Make sure your spelling and capitalization are correct (gs is case sensitive).

'Hope that helps .. PSM
