converts a text representation of a TeX DVI file, usually
produced by the companion dv2dt(1) utility, back to a
binary DVI file. DTL (DVI Text Language) files can be
edited, with care, and then restored to DVI form for
processing by any TeX 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.
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.
The format of
TeX DVI files is fully described in Donald E. Knuth, TeX:
The Program, Addison-Wesley (1986), ISBN 0-201-13437-3,
as well as in the dvitype(1) literate program source
code. Brief descriptions of the DTL and DVI formats are
given in dv2dt(1).
