Export to EPS

Do you know a library that allows the program to export vectorized EPS files?

There are a bunch of libs out there that embed your image as bitmap into EPS file, but not true vectorized image.
Your suggestions are greatly appreciated.

You might check out eDocEngine at .

I know it supports export of vectorized images into .emf files. 

Not sure about getting back to .eps, though I'm sure support at Gnostice could give you some good info on that.

Also, a quick check showed a converter form emf to eps:
I assume there are other converters that might work.

EPS is just PostScript with a special header, so if you already have your vector graphics in PostScript form, you are 90% of the way to writing EPS. If your graphics are not in PostScript form already, then your major problem is converting them to it. Depending on how your graphics primitives are coded, you might end up writing a conversion operator for each one that emits equivalent PostScript code.
