DT2DV(1)		    General Commands Manual		      DT2DV(1)

NAME
       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  re-
       quired  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  pro-
       duced 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
       dv2dt(1), dvitype(1), tex(1).

FILES
       *.dvi   binary TeX DVI file.

       *.dtl   text representation of a	TeX DVI	file in	DVI Text Language for-
	       mat.
