I use Mathematica and Adobe Illustrator to create the EPS figures in my papers, but the resulting EPS files often end up enormous. A quick, and usually harmless way to slim them down is to filter them through Ghostscript. I use this script.
Also, when I have multiple versions of a figure, I usually need to find out which version is being used in the current LaTeX file. This script will do that. For good measure, this other script will also find out which other TeX files are being
\input into the main LaTeX.
