dt2dv

SYNOPSIS
       dt2dv [-debug] [-group] [-si] [-so] [input-DTL-file] [output-DVI-file]

       In the absence of the -si and -so  options,  both  file  arguments  are
       required  in  the  order input-DTL-file output-DVI-file .  But also see
       the OPTIONS section below.  No default file extensions are supplied.

DESCRIPTION
       dt2dv converts a text representation of a TeX DVI  file,  usually  pro-
       duced by the companion dv2dt(1) utility, back to a binary DVI file. DTL
       (DVI Text Language) files can be edited, with care, and  then  restored
       to  DVI  form  for  processing  by  any TeX DVI driver program.  In DTL
       files, font directory names and font names are  preceded  by  a  length
       field, which must be updated if the names are modified.

       dvitype(1)  can also display a textual representation of DVI files, but
       in some implementations at least, it cannot be used in batch mode,  and
       its output is not well-suited for conversion back to a DVI file.

       The format of TeX DVI files is fully described in Donald E. Knuth, TeX:
       The Program, Addison-Wesley (1986), ISBN 0-201-13437-3, as well  as  in
       the dvitype(1) literate program source code.  Brief descriptions of the
       DTL and DVI formats are given in dv2dt(1).

OPTIONS
       -debug   Turn on detailed debugging output.

       -group   Expect each DTL command to be in parentheses.

       -si      Read all DTL commands from standard input.

       -so      Write all DVI commands to standard output.

SEE ALSO
       dv2dt(1), dvitype(1), tex(1).

FILES
       *.dvi   binary TeX DVI file.

       *.dtl   text representation of a TeX DVI file in DVI Text Language for-
               mat.
