       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 <>.


       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:

              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.
