NAMEdvitodvi - rearrange pages in a DVI file
SYNOPSISdvitodvi [ -q ] [ -i infile ] [ -o outfile ] [ -wwidth ] [ -hheight ] pagespecs [ infile [ outfile ] ]
DESCRIPTIONDvitodvi rearranges pages from a DVI file, creating a new DVI file. Dvitodvi can be used to perform a large number of arbitrary re-arrangements of Documents, including arranging for printing 2-up, 4-up, booklets, reversing, selecting front or back sides of documents, scaling, etc.
pagespecs follow the syntax:
- = [modulo:][mag@]specs
- = spec[+specs][,specs]
- = [-]pageno[(xoff,yoff)]
is the number of pages in each block. The value of
should be greater than 0; the default value is 1.
parameter adjusts the file's magnification by the magnification specified. The
magnification and modulo can be specified in reverse order if desired.
are the page specifications for the pages in each block. The value of the
should be between 0 (for the first page in the block) and modulo-1
(for the last page in each block) inclusive.
The optional dimensions
shift the page by the specified (positive) amount.
are in PostScript's points, but may be followed by the units
to convert to centimetres or inches, or the flag
to specify as a multiple of the width or height.
If the optional minus sign is specified, the page is relative to the end of
the document, instead of the start.
If page specs are separated by + the pages will be merged into one page; if they are separated by , they will be on separate pages. If there is only one page specification, with pageno zero, the pageno may be omitted.
The -w option gives the width which is used by the w dimension specifier, and the -h option gives the height which is used by the h dimension specifier. These dimensions are also used (after scaling) to set the clipping path for each page.
Dvitodvi normally prints the page numbers of the pages re-arranged; the -q option suppresses this.
EXAMPLESThis section contains some sample re-arrangements. To put two pages on one sheet (of landscaped A3 paper), the pagespec to use is:
To reduce an A3 page to A4 size, the pagespec to use is:
To select all of the odd pages in reverse order, use:
