NAME

       tmview,  dvisvga,  dvifb,  dvilx - view DVI files on SVGA, framebuffer devices or X Window
       displays

       dvi[svga|fb|lx]  [-?]   [-h<marg>]   [-v<marg>]   [-p<width>x<height>]   [-r<xres>x<yres>]
       [-f<path>]     [-n<name>]    [-t<path>]    [-q<path>]    [-d<width>x<height>]    [-m<mag>]

DESCRIPTION

       tmview is a screen-previewer for .dvi-files generated by TeX.  It lets you see  what  your
       printed  output  will  look like.  You can choose between a black-and-white representation
       and greyscaling. You can choose an arbitrary zoomfactor.  You can  set  marks  to  measure
       distances.   You  can  search  for textstrings.  tmview does not support pxl-files since I
       think they are prehistoric. tmview ignores almost all special-commands, sorry lads.  There
       is basic support for .vf-files.  If there occur any problems with this, use dvicopy to get
       a .vf-free .dvi-file.  tmview tries its best with included  .eps-figures.   dvisvga  is  a
       version  of  tmview based on svgalib for use with (s)vga equipment.  dvifb is a version of
       tmview writing on the "/dev/fb0" framebuffer devive.  dvilx goes with the X Window System.

       Try dvisvga/dvifb/dvilx -? to get a  complete  list  of  command-line  options  and  their
       default-values.

   ONLINEHELP
       Pressing  <?>  twice shows the onlinehelp and gives a list of available commands. However,
       you may check the cursor-keys and <+>/<-> first ...  or use <q> to quit.

   IMPORTANT
       All options have to be followed IMMEDIATELY by their arguments, NO spaces must be inserted
       !!!

   OPTIONS
       -h (horizontal-offset)
              A  lot  of printer drivers do a horizontal offset of 1 inch. If yours does as well,
              you should use -h25.4. The length following -h must be given in mm. Default: "25.4"

       -v (vertical-offset)
              A lot of printer drivers do a vertival offset of 1 inch. If yours does as well, you
              should use -v25.4. The length following -v must be given in mm. Default: "25.4"

       -p (Paper-size)
              Tells  tmview width and height of the paper you are using. The width is given first
              and both width and height are given in mm. Width and height  are  seperated  by  an
              "x". Default: "210.0x297.0" (german DIN A4)

       -r (Resolution)
              Tells tmview what kind of pk-files to use. The horizontal resolution is given first
              and both horizontal and vertical resolution are given in dpi (dots per  inch).  The
              two  values  are  seperated by an "x". Saying -r600x600 means tmview will use fonts
              which were generated for a 600-dpi-printer. As tmview assumes that  pixels  on  the
              screen  are  square,  different  values for horizontal and vertical resolution will
              result in a distorted image. Always make sure the desired pk-files  are  available.
              The  chosen  resolution  determines  the  (maximum)  size  of  the  representation.
              Default: "300x300"

       -f (Font-path)
              A list of paths telling tmview where to look for the pk-files. The  items  in  this
              list have to be seperated by :'s. The given list is executed from left to right. If
              an item ends with // all subdirectories will be scanned too. This is programed in a
              very  odd  way, so it takes lots of time. You should place such items at the end of
              the list.  Defaults: "./:/usr/lib/texmf/fonts//".

       -n (Name-of-the-font-file)
              If your dvi-file tells tmview to use a font called "thisnthatfont" and  tmview  was
              told  to  use a resolution of "123" dpi, tmview has to know how the desired file is
              named. In the string following "-n" the following replacements are made:

                 xx   replaced by
                 @N   thisnthatfont
                 @K   thisntha
                      (this is @N reduced to 8 char. (MS-DOG !))
                 @M   123
                      (the resolution)
                 @R   615
                      (this is @M*5, intended for magnified 200
                       dpi fonts used instead of 300 dpi fonts)

              Defaults: "@N.@Mpk"

       -t (tfm-path)
              A list of paths telling tmview where to look for the tfm-files. The items  in  this
              list  have  to  be separated by :'s. The given list is executed from left to right.
              tfm-files are used, to figure out the encoding. Therefore they  are  essential  for
              searching text to work.  Defaults: "./:usr/lib/texmf/fonts//".

       -q (vf-path)
              A list of paths where to look for vf-files. Defaults: "./:usr/lib/texmf/fonts//".

       -d (Display)
              Size  desired  resolution  of  your display (dvisvga). The width is given first and
              both width and height are given in pixels. Width and height  are  seperated  by  an
              "x".  Using  svgalib  you  may   choose a resulution supported by your version with
              respect to your hardware.  dvisvga prefers 256-color-modes. Hence, to get more than
              320x200  an  super  vga chipset supported by svgalib is required, standard vga wont
              do.  If the desired resolution is not available, dvisvga falls back to  640x480  at
              256  colors,  then  to 640x480 at 16 colors.  The framebuffer version dvifb ignores
              this option. Use the program fbset to set up the framebuffer device before starting
              tmview.  Using the X Window System (dvisvga) \verb+-d+ will suggest the size of the
              tmview   window.   However,   you    may    alternatively    use    the    resource
              \verb+DviLX.geometry+    or    the   standard   geometry   option   \verb*-geometry
              widthxheigth+x+y*.  Defaults: (dvisvga) "640x480"

       -m (magnification)
              If you want to magnify by a factor n you have to specify n*1000 as an  argument  to
              -m,  e.g.  -m2000  means  all  lengths  will  be  doubled.   NOTE: tmview magnifies
              according to the origin of the dvi-coordinates, which is -in most  cases-  NOT  the
              upper  left  corner  of  the  paper.  Always  make  sure  the  desired pk-files are
              available. -m doesn't magnify the paper, so if you wish a larger image  use  the  +
              and - keys or the -r option. Default: get magnification from dvi-file.

       -k (kannot-print-any-further)
              Most  printers  stop  printing if they are too close at the papers edge (some might
              even do strange things). The -k option describes the printable  area,  e.g.  saying
              -k1.0,2.0,3.0,4.0  means that your printer can print as close as 1 mm to the left 2
              mm to the right 3 mm to the upper 4 mm to the lower edge of the paper. These values
              are  used to draw a frame indicating the printable area. All four values have to be
              given and they have to be seperated by ",". All lengths are given in  mm.  Default:
              "4.0,4.0,4.0,12.0"

       -s (startup-file)
              tmview  reads  default  values  for the commandline-options, a list of visited dvi-
              files  and  lots  of  other  interna  from   a   system   startup-file,   typically
              "/etc/dvisvga",  "/etc/dvifb"  or  "/etc/dvilx".  After this a user startup-file is
              read. The name of the latter  can  be   specified  directly  after  the  -s.   When
              quitting  tmview,  the current options etc. will be saved in the user startup-file.
              If this is not desired, the user startup-file has to be set read-only !!   However,
              tmview  will  never  write to the system startup-file.  The default the user start-
              upfile is "~/.dvisvga", "~/.dvifb" or "~/.dvilx".

COPYING

       The code of tmview uses some rather basic ideas stolen from xdvi. This includes  some  few
       lines  of code just copied. The author of xdvi is Eric Cooper. In a similar kind, tmview's
       code depends on some lines of  dvidjc,  written  by  Wolfgang  R.Mueller.   The  hyper-TeX
       related parts are taken from xhdvi, written by Arthur Smith.  The sources of the above can
       be found on the CTAN. So by having mentioned the authors here, and giving a reference  how
       to get the original sources, this should not be a violation of their copyrights.

       As  far as I am concerned, tmview may be modified or distributed without any restrictions.
       tmview is distributed in the hope that it will be useful, but without any warranty.
