NAME
       dvibook - rearrange pages in DVI file into signatures

SYNOPSIS
       dvibook [ -q ] [ -s<num> ] [ -i infile ] [ -o outfile ] [ infile [ outfile ] ]

DESCRIPTION
       Dvibook  rearranges  pages  from a DVI file produced by TeX into ''signatures'' for printing books or booklets,
       creating a new DVI file usable by any of the TeX conversion programs.

       The -s option selects the size of signature which will be used. The signature size is the number of sides which
       will  be  folded  and  bound together; the number given should be a multiple of four. The default is to use one
       signature for the whole file. Extra blank sides will be added if the file does not contain a multiple  of  four
       pages.

       Dvibook normally prints the page numbers of the pages rearranged; the -q option suppresses this.

BUGS
       Dvibook  does not adjust the parameters in the postamble; however, since these values are normally used only to
       size certain structures in the output conversion programs, and the parameters never need to be adjusted upward,
       this has not proven to be a problem.
