display eps file on a website through php

Hello All,
I was thinking if there is a way to have a web page display an eps file on the browser?
This would be so if a user cannot open up eps files, then they can go to the site and upload the file and click on preview and the file would display on the web page

You can convert the eps file to a gif, jpg or png file using a graphics program such as irfanview or GIMP. Then you can provide a separate link for those who need to download the original eps file.

Thank you all for your help. I was hoping to build a site where my users can upload the EPS file and view it (converted to a jpg, or gif via some php library)
for now I think will use  irfanview or GIMP.
jawahar_prasad I tried using the hotscripts link but it did not work as the download link on hotscripts is no longer valid :(   thank you for researching though as it helped. :)
