This is how you can convert PDF documents to PostScript files via terminal:

  1. Install the poppler package via MacPorts or Homebrew.

  2. Run pdftops -eps input.pdf output.eps. Omit -eps if you need straight-forward PostScript (.ps) output. You can further specify the first and last page to use with the parameters -f and -l, respectively.
