Convert PostScript to PDF with a double-click Apps
I was searching for printing solutions under Classic, and had just created a Postscript file (.ps).

I was pleasantly surprised to find that double-clicking the postscript file opened TeXShop (see below) which automagically converted the file to PDF and displayed it. The .pdf file is stored in the same directory as the original .ps file.

Checking the details, I found that TeXShop 1.13, a very good and free front-end for teTeX on MacOS X, also acts as a perfect front-end to Ghostscript. Ghostscript can convert both .eps and .ps files to PDF. Complete installation instructions for TeXShop and teTeX (including Ghostscript) can be found at the TeXShop site.

Kudos to the authors of TeXShop!
