DVITYPE(1) General Commands Manual DVITYPE(1)
dvitype, odvitype - translate a dvi file for humans
This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete documen-
tation for this version of TeX can be found in the info file or manual
Web2C: A TeX implementation.
The dvitype program translates a DVI (DeVice Independent) file output
by (for example) tex(1) or gftodvi(1), to a file that humans can read.
It also serves as a DVI file-validating program (i.e., if dvitype can
read it, it's correct) and as an example of a DVI-reading program for
future device drivers.
The output file can include all commands, just the important ones, or
none at all (in which case only errors are reported). A subinterval of
pages may be selected for transliteration; the magnification and reso-
lution of the ``output device'' may be changed; and so on. All options
are specified with an on-line dialog.
The .dvi extension is supplied if omitted from dvi_name. The output
goes to stdout.
Set resolution to REAL pixels per inch; default 300.0.
Override existing magnification with NUMBER.
Process NUMBER pages; default one million.
Verbosity level, from 0 to 4; default 4.
Start at PAGE-SPEC, for example `2' or `5.*.-2'.
Show numeric opcodes (in decimal).
The environment variable TEXFONTS is used to search for the TFM files
used in the DVI file. See tex(1) for the details of the searching. If
TEXFONTS is not set, it uses the system default.
