texi2dvi - convert Texinfo documents to DVI or PDF SYNOPSIS
texi2dvi [OPTION]... FILE... texi2pdf [OPTION]... FILE... pdftexi2dvi [OPTION]... FILE... DESCRIPTION
Run each Texinfo or (La)TeX FILE through TeX in turn until all cross-references are resolved, building all indices. The directory contain- ing each FILE is searched for included files. The suffix of FILE is used to determine its language ((La)TeX or Texinfo). To process (e)plain TeX files, set the environment variable LATEX=tex. In order to make texi2dvi a drop-in replacement of TeX/LaTeX in AUC-TeX, the FILE may also be composed of the following simple TeX com- mands. `input{FILE}' the actual file to compile ` onstopmode' same as --batch When invoked as `texi2pdf' or `pdftexi2dvi', or given the option --pdf or --dvipdf, generate PDF output. Otherwise, generate DVI. General options: -b, --batch no interaction -D, --debug turn on shell debugging (set -x) -h, --help display this help and exit successfully -o, --output=OFILE leave output in OFILE; only one input FILE is allowed -q, --quiet no output unless errors (implies --batch) -s, --silent same as --quiet -v, --version display version information and exit successfully -V, --verbose report on what is done Output format: --dvi output a DVI file [default] --dvipdf output a PDF file via DVI (using a dvi-to-pdf program) --html output an HTML file from LaTeX, using HeVeA --info output an Info file from LaTeX, using HeVeA -p, --pdf use pdftex or pdflatex for processing --ps output a PostScript file via DVI (using dvips) --text output a plain text file from LaTeX, using HeVeA TeX tuning: -@ use @input instead of input for preloaded Texinfo -e, -E, --expand force macro expansion using makeinfo -I DIR search DIR for Texinfo files -l, --language=LANG specify LANG for FILE, either latex or texinfo --no-line-error do not pass --file-line-error to TeX -r, --recode call recode before TeX to translate input --recode-from=ENC recode from ENC to the @documentencoding --shell-escape pass --shell-escape to TeX --src-specials pass --src-specials to TeX -t, --command=CMD insert CMD in copy of input file or --texinfo=CMD multiple values accumulate --translate-file=FILE use given charset translation file for TeX Build modes: --build=MODE specify the treatment of auxiliary files [local] --tidy same as --build=tidy -c, --clean same as --build=clean --build-dir=DIR specify where the tidy compilation is performed; implies --tidy; defaults to TEXI2DVI_BUILD_DIRECTORY [.] --mostly-clean remove the auxiliary files and directories but not the output --max-iterations=N don't process files more than N times The MODE specifies where the TeX compilation takes place, and, as a consequence, how auxiliary files are treated. The build mode can also be set using the environment variable TEXI2DVI_BUILD_MODE. Valid MODEs are: `local' compile in the current directory, leaving all the auxiliary files around. This is the traditional TeX use. `tidy' compile in a local *.t2d directory, where the auxiliary files are left. Output files are copied back to the original file. `clean' same as `tidy', but remove the auxiliary directory afterwards. Every compilation therefore requires the full cycle. Using the `tidy' mode brings several advantages: - the current directory is not cluttered with plethora of temporary files. - clutter can be even further reduced using --build-dir=dir: all the *.t2d directories are stored there. - clutter can be reduced to zero using, e.g., --build-dir=/tmp/$USER.t2d or --build-dir=$HOME/.t2d. - the output file is updated after every successful TeX run, for sake of concurrent visualization of the output. In a `local' build the viewer stops during the whole TeX run. - if the compilation fails, the previous state of the output file is preserved. - PDF and DVI compilation are kept in separate subdirectories preventing any possibility of auxiliary file incompatibility. On the other hand, because `tidy' compilation takes place in another directory, occasionally TeX won't be able to find some files (e.g., when using graphicspath): in that case, use -I to specify the additional directories to consider. The values of the BIBTEX, DVIPDF, DVIPS, HEVEA, LATEX, MAKEINDEX, MAKEINFO, PDFLATEX, PDFTEX, T4HT, TEX, TEX4HT, TEXINDEX, and THUMBPDF environment variables are used to run those commands, if they are set. Regarding --dvipdf, if DVIPDF is not set in the environment, the following programs are looked for (in this order): dvipdfmx dvipdfm dvipdf dvi2pdf dvitopdf. Any CMD strings are added after @setfilename for Texinfo input, or in the first line for LaTeX input. REPORTING BUGS
