dvibook - rearrange pages in DVI file into signatures
dvibook [ -q ] [ -s<num> ] [ -i infile ] [ -o outfile ] [ infile [ out-
file ] ]
Dvibook rearranges pages from a DVI file produced by TeX into ``signa-
tures'' for printing books or booklets, creating a new DVI file usable
by any of the TeX conversion programs.
The -s option selects the size of signature which will be used. The
signature size is the number of sides which will be folded and bound
together; the number given should be a multiple of four. The default is
to use one signature for the whole file. Extra blank sides will be
added if the file does not contain a multiple of four pages.
Dvibook normally prints the page numbers of the pages rearranged; the
-q option suppresses this.

Dvibook does not adjust the parameters in the postamble; however, since
these values are normally used only to size certain structures in the
output conversion programs, and the parameters never need to be
adjusted upward, this has not proven to be a problem.
