     texi2dvi4a2ps  -  Compile  Texinfo and LaTeX files to DVI or

     texi2dvi4a2ps [OPTION]... FILE...

     Run each Texinfo or LaTeX 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
     (LaTeX or Texinfo).

     Makeinfo is used to perform Texinfo macro  expansion  before
     running TeX when needed.

  Operation modes:
     -b, --batch
          no interaction

     -c, --clean
          remove all auxiliary files

     -D, --debug
          turn on shell debugging (set -x)

     -h, --help
          display this help and exit successfully

     -o, --output=OFILE
          leave output in OFILE (implies --clean); Only one input
          FILE may be specified in this case

     -q, --quiet
          no output unless errors (implies --batch)

     -s, --silent
          same as --quiet

     -v, --version
          display version information and exit successfully

     -V, --verbose
          report on what is done

  TeX tuning:
     -@   use @input instead of \input; for preloaded Texinfo

     -e, --expand
          force macro expansion using makeinfo

          use pdftex or pdflatex for processing

     -t, --texinfo=CMD
          insert CMD after @setfilename in  copy  of  input  file
          multiple values accumulate

     The  values  of  the BIBTEX, LATEX (or PDFLATEX), MAKEINDEX,
     MAKEINFO, TEX (or PDFTEX), and  TEXINDEX  environment  vari-
     ables are used to run those commands, if they are set.

     texi2dvi4a2ps  is  exactly the same script as texi2dvi, part
     of the package GNU Texinfo.  It is used by a2ps  when  dele-
     gating LaTeX and Texinfo files.  Instead of checking whether
     the version of texi2dvi which is installed is recent enough,
     it  is  more  convenient  for the users that a2ps is shipped
     with the version of texi2dvi it requires.  a2ps(1), card(1),
     fixps(1), pdiff(1), psset(1), texi2dvi4a2ps(1).

     The  full documentation for texi2dvi is maintained as a Tex-
