I've created a script using a program called vtrace from Brent Ewing. I
think you'd have to contact him directly for the program. That program
creates postscript files in a batch, command line mode and then I use
ImageMagick to create PDFs.The only problem I've had recently is that I
can't get the vtrace source I have to compile on new linux distribution,
but the binary I created back a couple of years ago still works. I'd be
interested in any other solutions you hear about.
The ABRF list (http://abrf.org/index.cfm/list.home) had a post some time
ago about some scripted solutions on Mac and Windows. you could try
searching to find the thread.
