    LaTeX Question

    I have a strange problem. I would like to include a figure in my PDF file, and my LaTeX source looks like this:

    Code:
    \begin{figure}[htbp]
    \begin{center}
    \includegraphics[width=0.8\textwidth]{FCM_1.eps}
    \end{center}
    \caption{My Caption}
    \end{figure}
    Then I run the command

    $ latex MyFile.tex

    which returns MyFile.dvi. I can view the figure in the dvi file (using xdvi), but when I run pdflatex to convert the file into a PDF file I cannot see any diagram in the final PDF output, even though the compilation proceeds without error.

    Can someone please tell me what is going on here?

    pdflatex cannot handle EPS-files.

    You can convert the .DVI file to .PS with "dvips MyFile" and then to .PDF using "ps2pdf MyFile.ps"
