# Include EPS files in LaTeX

Recently I wanted to include a directed graph in a LaTeX document. I was running dot on the graph file
 \$ dot -Tps2 nfa.dot > nfa.eps 
to receive the EPS file which I wanted to include in LaTeX. Running TeXShop with pdflatex for typesetting on a file containing
 \begin{figure}[!htb] \centering \includegraphics[scale=.7]{nfa.eps} \caption{Digraph.} \label{fig:digraph} \end{figure} 
however returns the error
 ! LaTeX Error: Unknown graphics extension: .eps. 

This can be resolved by adding
 \usepackage{epstopdf} 
which allows to convert eps images to pdf for use with pdflatex. This works perfect. 😎
