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.

       In  order  to  make  texi2dvi  a  drop-in  replacement  of TeX/LaTeX in
       AUC-TeX, the FILE may also be composed of the following simple TeX com-
       mands.

       `\input{FILE}'
              the actual file to compile

       `\nonstopmode'
              same as --batch

       When  invoked as `texi2pdf' or `pdftexi2dvi', or given the option --pdf
       or --dvipdf, 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)

       -s, --silent
              same as --quiet

       -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 the auxiliary files and directories, 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:
       -@     use @input instead of \input for preloaded Texinfo

       -e, -E, --expand
              force 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

       -t, --command=CMD
              insert CMD in copy of input file

       or --texinfo=CMD
              multiple values accumulate

       --translate-file=FILE
              use given charset translation file for TeX

   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  corre-
       sponding 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 fol-
       lowing programs are looked for (in this order): dvipdfmx dvipdfm dvipdf
       dvi2pdf dvitopdf.

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

       If Texinfo is installed on your site, then the command

              info texi2dvi

       should give you access to more documentation.
