       dvitype - translate a dvi file for humans

       dvitype dvi_name[.dvi]

       This  manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The complete documentation for this ver-
       sion 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-vali-
       dating 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 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.

       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.

       gftype(1), pktype(1).
       Donald E. Knuth, TeXware.

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

       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 originally
       ported it to Unix.
