dvi2dvi(1) Tweaks DVI files


dvi2dvi [options] files...


This manual page documents briefly the dvi2dvi command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page. dvi2dvi is a program that can tweak DVI files - e.g. expands virtual fonts in given DVI files, changes font names in given DVI files, decomposes 2-byte fonts into 1-byte subfonts, and so on. The most common use of this program would be to translate DVI files generated by NTT jTeX to those of ASCII pTeX.
