xetex - extended TeX with native support for Unicode, OpenType, system fonts
xetex [options] [&format] [file|\commands]
XeTeX (xetex) is a TeX engine with native support for Unicode, OpenType, and system- installed fonts, using third-party libraries (such as ICU, HarfBuzz, and Freetype). It was developed by Jonathan Kew for SIL. XeTeX includes the e-TeX extensions and many extensions from pdfTeX, sometimes with different primitive names. XeTeX is now released as part of TeX Live <https://tug.org/texlive>.
XeTeX's handling of its command-line arguments is similar to that of the other TeX programs in the Web2C implementation. Here we list only additions/deletions of command line options which are specific to XeTeX; see etex(1) for common options. Additions: -no-pdf Generate XeTeX's extended DVI (.xdv) output instead of pdf. -output-driver cmd Run cmd instead of xdvipdfmx to translate xdv to pdf. -papersize string Set pdf media size to string. Removals: -draftmode, -enc, -ipc, -ipc-start, -translate-file.
