# ps2pdf converter

converting ps or eps files to pdf always left me with the wrong cropping of the image/page and with a white border that messes up the formatiing. To avoid this I convert the files using the following command:

ps2pdf -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress-dEPSCrop test.eps

this morning I read about something really crazy you can do in C++ which involves bitshifting a float number and subtracting it from a magic number to get $\frac{1}{\sqrt{x}}$. You can find the explanation here, very cool: link
