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:

-h, --help display this help and exit successfully
-v, --version
 display version information and exit successfully
-V, --verbose
 report on what is done
-q, --quiet
 no output unless errors (implies --batch)
-s, --silent
 same as --quiet
-D, --debug
 turn on shell debugging (set -x)
-b, --batch
 no interaction
-c, --clean
 remove all auxiliary files
-o, --output=FILE
 leave output in FILE (implies --clean)
Only one FILE may be specified if ‘--output’ is used.

TeX tuning:

-@ use @input instead of \input; for preloaded Texinfo
-e, --expand
 force macro expansion using makeinfo
-I DIR 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.

texi2dvi4a2ps is exactly the same script as texi2dvi, part of the package GNU Texinfo. It is used by a2ps when delegating 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 Texinfo manual. If the info and texi2dvi programs are properly installed at your site, the command
info texi2dvi
should give you access to the complete manual.
