NAME
       dvibook - rearrange pages in DVI	file into signatures

SYNOPSIS
       dvibook [ -q ] [	-s_num_	] [ -i infile ]	[ -o outfile ] [ infile	[ out-
       file ] ]

DESCRIPTION
       Dvibook rearranges pages	from a DVI file	produced by TeX	into  ``signa-
       tures''	for printing books or booklets,	creating a new DVI file	usable
       by any of the TeX conversion programs.

       The -s option selects the size of signature which  will	be  used.  The
       signature  size	is  the	number of sides	which will be folded and bound
       together; the number given should be a multiple of four.	The default is
       to  use	one  signature	for  the whole file. Extra blank sides will be
       added if	the file does not contain a multiple of	four pages.

       Dvibook normally	prints the page	numbers	of the pages  rearranged;  the
       -q option suppresses this.

BUGS
       Dvibook does not	adjust the parameters in the postamble;	however, since
       these values are	normally used only to size certain structures  in  the
       output  conversion  programs,  and  the parameters never	need to	be ad-
       justed upward, this has not proven to be	a problem.
