NAME
       texi2dvi	- convert Texinfo documents to DVI or PDF

SYNOPSIS
       texi2dvi	[OPTION]... FILE...
       texi2pdf	[OPTION]... FILE...
       pdftexi2dvi [OPTION]... FILE...

DESCRIPTION
       Run  each  Texinfo  or  (La)TeX	FILE  through  TeX  in	turn until all
       cross-references	are resolved, building	all  indices.	The  directory
       containing  each	 FILE  is  searched for	included files.	 The suffix of
       FILE is used to	determine  its	language  ((La)TeX  or	Texinfo).   To
       process (e)plain	TeX files, set the environment variable	LATEX=tex.

       When  invoked as	`texi2pdf' or given the	option --pdf generate PDF out-
       put.  Otherwise,	generate DVI.

   General options:
       -D, --debug
	      turn on shell debugging (set -x)

       -h, --help
	      display this help	and exit successfully

       -o, --output=OFILE
	      leave output in OFILE; only one input FILE is allowed

       -q, --quiet
	      no output	unless errors

       -v, --version
	      display version information and exit successfully

       -V, --verbose
	      report on	what is	done

       --max-iterations=N
	      don't process files more than N times [7]

       --mostly-clean
	      remove auxiliary files or	directories from  previous  runs  (but
	      not the output)

   Output format:
       --dvi  output a DVI file	[default]

       --dvipdf
	      output a PDF file	via DVI	(using a dvi-to-pdf program)

       --html output an	HTML file from LaTeX, using HeVeA

       --info output an	Info file from LaTeX, using HeVeA

       -p, --pdf
	      use pdftex or pdflatex for processing

       --ps   output a PostScript file via DVI (using dvips)

       --text output a plain text file from LaTeX, using HeVeA

   TeX tuning:
       -E, --expand
	      macro expansion using makeinfo

       -I DIR search DIR for Texinfo files

       -l, --language=LANG
	      specify LANG for FILE, either latex or texinfo

       --no-line-error
	      do not pass --file-line-error to TeX

       --shell-escape
	      pass --shell-escape to TeX

       --src-specials
	      pass --src-specials to TeX

       --translate-file=FILE
	      use given	charset	translation file for TeX

       -t, --command=CMD
	      insert CMD in copy of input file

   Build modes:
       --build=MODE
	      specify the treatment of auxiliary files [local]

       --tidy same as --build=tidy

       -c, --clean
	      same as --build=clean

       --build-dir=DIR
	      specify where the	tidy compilation is performed; implies --tidy;
	      defaults to TEXI2DVI_BUILD_DIRECTORY [.]

       The MODE	specifies where	the TeX	compilation takes  place,  and,	 as  a
       consequence,  how auxiliary files are treated.  The build mode can also
       be set using the	environment variable TEXI2DVI_BUILD_MODE.

   Valid values	of MODE	are:
       `local'
	      compile in the current  directory,  leaving  all	the  auxiliary
	      files around.  This is the traditional TeX use.

       `tidy' compile  in  a  local *.t2d directory, where the auxiliary files
	      are left.	 Output	files are copied back to the original file.

       `clean'
	      same as `tidy', but remove the auxiliary	directory  afterwards.
	      Every compilation	therefore requires the full cycle.

       The  values  of	these environment variables are	used to	run the	corre-
       sponding	commands, if they are set:

	      BIBER BIBTEX DVIPDF DVIPS	EGREP HEVEA LATEX  MAKEINDEX  MAKEINFO
	      PDFLATEX	 PDFTEX	  SED	T4HT   TEX   TEX4HT  TEXINDEX  TEXINDY
	      THUMBPDF_CMD

       Regarding --dvipdf, if DVIPDF is	not set	in the environment,  the  fol-
       lowing programs are looked for (in this order): dvipdfmx	dvipdfm	dvipdf
       dvi2pdf dvitopdf.

       If Texinfo is installed on your site, then the command

	      info texi2dvi

       should give you access to more documentation.
