NAME
       dvitype - translate a dvi file for humans

SYNOPSIS
       dvitype dvi_name[.dvi]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

ENVIRONMENT
       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.

SEE ALSO
       gftype(1), pktype(1).

BUGS
       The interactive dialog should be replaced by command-line options, as with gftype.

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