NAME

dt2dv - convert a DTL text representation of a TeX DVI file to a binary DVI file

SYNOPSIS

dt2dv [-debug] [-group] [-si] [-so] [input-DTL-file] [output-DVI-file]

In the absence of the -si and -so options, both file arguments are required in the order input-DTL-file output-DVI-file . But also see the OPTIONS section below. No default file extensions are supplied.

DESCRIPTION

dt2dv converts a text representation of a T\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X DVI file, usually produced by the companion dv2dt(1) utility, back to a binary DVI file. DTL (DVI Text Language) files can be edited, with care, and then restored to DVI form for processing by any T\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X DVI driver program. In DTL files, font directory names and font names are preceded by a length field, which must be updated if the names are modified.

dvitype(1) can also display a textual representation of DVI files, but in some implementations at least, it cannot be used in batch mode, and its output is not well-suited for conversion back to a DVI file.

The format of T\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X DVI files is fully described in Donald E. Knuth, T\h’-0.1667m’\v’0.20v’E\v’-0.20v’\h’-0.125m’X: The Program, Addison-Wesley (1986), ISBN 0-201-13437-3, as well as in the dvitype(1) literate program source code. Brief descriptions of the DTL and DVI formats are given in dv2dt(1).

OPTIONS

-debug Turn on detailed debugging output.
-group Expect each DTL command to be in parentheses.
-si Read all DTL commands from standard input.
-so Write all DVI commands to standard output.
