NAME

       dvitodvi - rearrange pages in a DVI file

SYNOPSIS

       dvitodvi [ -q ] [ -i infile ] [ -o outfile ] [ -wwidth ] [ -hheight ] pagespecs [ infile [
       outfile ] ]

DESCRIPTION

       Dvitodvi rearranges pages from a DVI file, creating a new DVI file.  Dvitodvi can be  used
       to  perform  a large number of arbitrary re-arrangements of Documents, including arranging
       for printing 2-up, 4-up, booklets, reversing, selecting front or back sides of  documents,
       scaling, etc.

       pagespecs follow the syntax:

              pagespecs   = [modulo:][mag@]specs

              specs       = spec[+specs][,specs]

              spec        = [-]pageno[(xoff,yoff)]

       modulo is the number of pages in each block. The value of modulo should be greater than 0;
       the default value is 1.  The optional mag parameter adjusts the  file's  magnification  by
       the  magnification  specified.  The  magnification  and modulo can be specified in reverse
       order if desired.  specs are the page specifications for the  pages  in  each  block.  The
       value of the pageno in each spec should be between 0 (for the first page in the block) and
       modulo-1 (for the last page in each block) inclusive.  The optional  dimensions  xoff  and
       yoff shift the page by the specified (positive) amount.  xoff and yoff are in PostScript's
       points, but may be followed by the units cm or in to convert to centimetres or inches,  or
       the  flag  w  or h to specify as a multiple of the width or height.  If the optional minus
       sign is specified, the page is relative to the end of the document, instead of the start.

       If page specs are separated by + the pages will be merged  into  one  page;  if  they  are
       separated  by    they will be on separate pages.  If there is only one page specification,
       with pageno zero, the pageno may be omitted.

       The -w option gives the width which is used by the  w  dimension  specifier,  and  the  -h
       option  gives  the height which is used by the h dimension specifier. These dimensions are
       also used (after scaling) to set the clipping path for each page.

       Dvitodvi normally prints the  page  numbers  of  the  pages  re-arranged;  the  -q  option
       suppresses this.

EXAMPLES

       This  section  contains  some  sample  re-arrangements.  To put two pages on one sheet (of
       landscaped A3 paper), the pagespec to use is:

                                             2:0+1(21cm,0)

       To reduce an A3 page to A4 size, the pagespec to use is:

                                           700@(-.3in,-.3in)

       To select all of the odd pages in reverse order, use:

                                                  2:-0

BUGS

       Dvitodvi does not adjust some of the parameters in the postamble. This may be a problem if
       these values are used to size certain structures in the output conversion programs.
