The operation that imports EPS files in Mathematica 4 is a translation of the PostScript file's contents into Mathematica graphics primitives. The set of all Mathematica graphics does not have a one-to-one mapping between the set of possible PostScript language commands. You should be able to import two-dimensional line-based drawings fairly easily. If you're doing something a little more bizarre, the process may not be perfect. If you have specific examples of failures which you find to be unreasonable you are welcome to send them to our Technical Support department. -- P.J.
