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  output.   Otherwise,
       generate DVI.

   General options:
       -b, --batch
              no interaction

       -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 (implies --batch)

       -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

       Any  CMD  strings are added after @setfilename for Texinfo input, or in the first line for
       LaTeX input.  Multiple values accumulate.

   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 corresponding  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  following  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.
