EPS files are PS plus a little graphics (binary!!!) header, usually TIFF or in Windows envaironment also WMF, that let graphics programs to see the pic without decoding Postscript language (as, instead, it will be done by the printer at printing time); if you dont want binary stuff you have simply to export graphics cells in PS format, so You will obtain a regular Postcript laguage file output.
