dt2dv - convert a DTL text representation of a TeX DVI file to a binary DVI file 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 produced 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

dvitype, odvitype - translate a dvi file for humans SYNOPSIS
dvitype dvi_name[.dvi] DESCRIPTION
This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete 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 pro- gram 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 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. OPTIONS
-dpi=REAL Set resolution to REAL pixels per inch; default 300.0. -magnification=NUMBER Override existing magnification with NUMBER. -max-pages=NUMBER Process NUMBER pages; default one million. -output-level=NUMBER Verbosity level, from 0 to 4; default 4. -page-start=PAGE-SPEC Start at PAGE-SPEC, for example `2' or `5.*.-2'. -show-opcodes Show numeric opcodes (in decimal). 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
