Package: texlive-base-bin
Version: 2005.dfsg.2-10
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/a2ping

Hi Peter,

I just discovered a2ping, which seems to be a good alternative to
epstopdf.  However, I found some small glitches

$ a2ping bilder/5.3M-FCS-tauD.{eps,pdf}
Name "main::opt_extra" used only once: possible typo at /usr/bin/a2ping line 546.
Name "main::opt_help" used only once: possible typo at /usr/bin/a2ping line 534.
ESP Ghostscript 815.03: Unrecoverable error, exit code 1

Hm, this looks fatal - but in fact it's just a false alarm.  Let's check
the details:

$ a2ping -v bilder/5.3M-FCS-tauD.{eps,pdf}
Name "main::opt_extra" used only once: possible typo at /usr/bin/a2ping line 546.
Name "main::opt_help" used only once: possible typo at /usr/bin/a2ping line 534.

Aha, in fact nothing went wrong.  I don't know the purpose of this
intermediate call, but it seems that at least its stderr should be

-  my $offset=`$gs2`;
+  my $offset=`$gs2 2>/dev/null`;

Furthermore, $opt_help and $opt_extra should either be used or removed...

Regards, Frank
