DVITYPE(1)                                             DVITYPE(1)

NAME
       dvitype - translate a dvi file for humans

SYNOPSIS
       dvitype dvi_name[.dvi]

DESCRIPTION
       This  manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The com-
       plete documentation 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  impor-
       tant  ones,  or none at all (in which case only errors are
       reported).  A subinterval of pages  may  be  selected  for
       transliteration;  the  magnification and resolution 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.

ENVIRONMENT
       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.

SEE ALSO
       gftype(1), pktype(1).

BUGS
       The  interactive dialog should be replaced by command-line
       options, as with gftype.

AUTHORS
       Donald E. Knuth wrote the program.  It  was  published  as
       part  of  the TeXware technical report, available from the
       TeX Users Group.  Howard Trickey and Pavel  Curtis  origi-
       nally ported it to Unix.
