.SH NAME
dt2dv \- convert a DTL text representation of a TeX DVI file to a binary DVI file
.\"======================================================================
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B dt2dv
.RB [ \-debug ]
.RB [ \-group ]
.RB [ \-si ]
.RB [ \-so ]
.RI [ input-DTL-file ]
.RI [ output-DVI-file ]
.PP
In the absence of the
.B \-si
and
.B \-so
options,
both file arguments are
.I required
in the order
.BR "input-DTL-file output-DVI-file" .
But also see the OPTIONS section below.
No default file extensions are supplied.
.\"======================================================================
.SH DESCRIPTION
.B dt2dv
converts a text representation of a \*(Te\& DVI
file, usually produced by the companion
.BR dv2dt (1)
utility, back to a binary DVI file.
DTL
.RI ( "DVI Text Language" )
files can be edited, with care, and then restored
to DVI form for processing by any \*(Te\& DVI
driver program.  In DTL files, font directory names
and font names are preceded by a length field,
which must be updated if the names are modified.
.PP
.BR dvitype (1)
can also display a textual representation of DVI
files, but in some implementations at least, it
cannot be used in batch mode, and its output is
not well-suited for conversion back to a DVI file.
.PP
The format of \*(Te\& DVI files is fully described
in
Donald E.\& Knuth,
.IR "\*(Te\&: The Program" ,
Addison-Wesley (1986), ISBN 0-201-13437-3, as well
as in the
.BR dvitype (1)
literate program source code.  Brief descriptions
of the DTL and DVI formats are given in
.BR dv2dt (1).
.\"======================================================================
.SH OPTIONS
.\"-----------------------------------------------
.TP \w'\-debug'u+3n
.B \-debug
Turn on detailed debugging output.
.\"-----------------------------------------------
.TP
.B \-group
Expect each DTL command to be in parentheses.
.\"-----------------------------------------------
.TP
.B \-si
Read all DTL commands from standard input.
.\"-----------------------------------------------
.TP
.B \-so
Write all DVI commands to standard output.
