I dont think it's a problem; yep, Window adds ^D characters, as no
other OS does but this is not the point. 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.
