NAME

       dvibook - rearrange pages in DVI file into signatures

SYNOPSIS

       dvibook [ -q ] [ -s<num> ] [ -r ] [ -i infile ] [ -o outfile ] [ infile [ outfile ] ]

DESCRIPTION

       Dvibook  rearranges pages from a DVI file produced by TeX into ``signatures'' 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.

       By  default,  dvibook  rearranges the pages into left-hand side binding signatures; the -r
       option switches to right-hand side binding signatures.  This  might  be  useful  for  pTeX
       vertical writing (tate-kumi) documents.

       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 adjusted upward, this has not proven to be a problem.
