DVITYPE(1)		    General Commands Manual		    DVITYPE(1)

NAME
       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 documen-
       tation 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  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 reso-
       lution 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
       gftype(1), pktype(1).
       Donald E. Knuth,	TeX for	nroffware.

AUTHORS
       Donald E. Knuth wrote the program.  It was published as part of the TeX
       for  nroffware  technical  report,  available from the TeX Users	Group.
       Howard Trickey and Pavel	Curtis originally ported it to Unix.
