texi2dvi4a2ps - Compile Texinfo and LaTeX files to DVI or PDF


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
search DIR for Texinfo files
-l, --language=LANG
specify the LANG of FILE (LaTeX or Texinfo)
-p, --pdf
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 variables are used to run those commands, if they are set.

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 Texinfo manual. If the info and texi2dvi programs are properly installed at your site, the command
