       dvitype, odvitype - translate a dvi file for humans


       dvitype dvi_name[.dvi]


       This  manual  page  is  not  meant  to be exhaustive.  The complete documentation for this
       version of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       The dvitype program translates a DVI (DeVice Independent) file  output  by  (for  example)
       tex(1)  or  gftodvi(1),  to  a  file  that  humans can read. It also serves as a DVI file-
       validating program (i.e., if dvitype can read it, it's correct) and as  an  example  of  a
       DVI-reading program for future device drivers.

       The  output  file  can  include  all commands, just the important ones, or none at all (in
       which case only errors are  reported).   A  subinterval  of  pages  may  be  selected  for
       transliteration; the magnification and resolution of the ``output device'' may be changed;
       and so on. All options are specified with an on-line dialog.

       The .dvi extension is supplied if omitted from dvi_name.  The output goes to stdout.


              Set resolution to REAL pixels per inch; default 300.0.

              Override existing magnification with NUMBER.

              Process NUMBER pages; default one million.

              Verbosity level, from 0 to 4; default 4.

              Start at PAGE-SPEC, for example `2' or `5.*.-2'.

              Show numeric opcodes (in decimal).


       The environment variable TEXFONTS is used to search for the TFM  files  used  in  the  DVI
       file.   See  tex(1) for the details of the searching.  If TEXFONTS is not set, it uses the
       system default.


       gftype(1), pktype(1).

       Donald E. Knuth wrote the program.  It was published as part  of  the  TeX  for  nroffware
       technical  report,  available  from  the TeX Users Group.  Howard Trickey and Pavel Curtis
       originally ported it to Unix.
