texi2dvi4a2ps - Man Page

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.

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.
