NAME

texi2dvi - convert Texinfo documents to DVI or PDF  

SYNOPSIS

texi2dvi [,OPTION/]... ,FILE/...
texi2pdf [,OPTION/]... ,FILE/...
pdftexi2dvi [,OPTION/]... ,FILE/...  

DESCRIPTION

Run each Texinfo or (La)TeX FILE through TeX in turn until all cross-references are resolved, building all indices. The directory containing each FILE is searched for included files. The suffix of FILE is used to determine its language ((La)TeX or Texinfo). To process (e)plain TeX files, set the environment variable LATEX=tex.

When invoked as `texi2pdf' or given the option --pdf generate PDF output. Otherwise, generate DVI.  

General options:

-b, --batch
no interaction
-D, --debug
turn on shell debugging (set -x)
-h, --help
display this help and exit successfully
-o, --output=,OFILE/
leave output in OFILE; only one input FILE is allowed
-q, --quiet
no output unless errors (implies --batch)
-v, --version
display version information and exit successfully
-V, --verbose
report on what is done
--max-iterations=,N/
don't process files more than N times [7]
--mostly-clean
remove auxiliary files or directories from previous runs (but not the output)
 

Output format:

--dvi
output a DVI file [default]
--dvipdf
output a PDF file via DVI (using a dvi-to-pdf program)
--html
output an HTML file from LaTeX, using HeVeA
--info
output an Info file from LaTeX, using HeVeA
-p, --pdf
use pdftex or pdflatex for processing
--ps
output a PostScript file via DVI (using dvips)
--text
output a plain text file from LaTeX, using HeVeA
 

TeX tuning:

-E, --expand
macro expansion using makeinfo
-I DIR
search DIR for Texinfo files
-l, --language=,LANG/
specify LANG for FILE, either latex or texinfo
--no-line-error
do not pass --file-line-error to TeX
--shell-escape
pass --shell-escape to TeX
--src-specials
pass --src-specials to TeX
--translate-file=,FILE/
use given charset translation file for TeX
-t, --command=,CMD/
insert CMD in copy of input file

Any CMD strings are added after @setfilename for Texinfo input, or in the first line for LaTeX input. Multiple values accumulate.  

Build modes:

--build=,MODE/
specify the treatment of auxiliary files [local]
--tidy
same as --build=,tidy/
-c, --clean
same as --build=,clean/
--build-dir=,DIR/
specify where the tidy compilation is performed; implies --tidy; defaults to TEXI2DVI_BUILD_DIRECTORY [.]

The MODE specifies where the TeX compilation takes place, and, as a consequence, how auxiliary files are treated. The build mode can also be set using the environment variable TEXI2DVI_BUILD_MODE.  

Valid values of MODE are:

`local'
compile in the current directory, leaving all the auxiliary files around. This is the traditional TeX use.
`tidy'
compile in a local *.t2d directory, where the auxiliary files are left. Output files are copied back to the original file.
`clean'
same as `tidy', but remove the auxiliary directory afterwards. Every compilation therefore requires the full cycle.

The values of these environment variables are used to run the corresponding commands, if they are set:

BIBER BIBTEX DVIPDF DVIPS EGREP HEVEA LATEX MAKEINDEX MAKEINFO PDFLATEX PDFTEX SED T4HT TEX TEX4HT TEXINDEX TEXINDY THUMBPDF_CMD

Regarding --dvipdf, if DVIPDF is not set in the environment, the following programs are looked for (in this order): dvipdfmx dvipdfm dvipdf dvi2pdf dvitopdf.

If Texinfo is installed on your site, then the command

info texi2dvi

should give you access to more documentation.
