Name

miktex-dvicopy — produce modified copy of DVI file

Synopsis

miktex-dvicopy [option...] indvi outdvi

Description

miktex-dvicopy reads a DVI file, expands any references to virtual fonts to base fonts, and writes the resulting DVI file. Thus you can use virtual fonts even if your DVI processor does not support them, by passing the documents through miktex-dvicopy first.

Options

--alias=name

Pretend to be program name, i.e., set program (and memory dump) name to name. This may affect the search paths and other values used. Using this option is equivalent to copying the program file to name and invoking name.

--disable-installer

Disable automatic installation of packages. Specifying this option overrules settings in the MiKTeX configuration data store.

--disable-pipes

Disable input (output) from (to) child processes.

--enable-installer

Enable automatic installation of packages. Specifying this option overrules settings in the MiKTeX configuration data store.

--enable-pipes

Enable input (output) from (to) child processes.

--help

Give help and exit.

--hhelp

This option is only available on Windows systems: show the manual page in an HTML Help window and exit when the window is closed.

--include-directory=dir

Add the directory dir to the head of the list of directories to be searched for input files.

--mag=mag

Override existing magnification with mag.

--max-pages=n

Process n pages; default one million. This option cannot be used together with --select.

--page-start=pagespec

Start at page-spec, for example 2 or 5.*.-2. This option cannot be used together with --select.

--record-package-usages=file

Record all package usages and write them into file.

--select=sel

Select pages to be copied.

The syntax for sel is: start [n], where start is the starting page specification (for example 2 or 5.*.-2) and n (optional) is the maximum number of pages to be copied.

You can use up to 10 --select options. This option cannot be used together with --max-pages or --page-start.

--trace[=tracestreams]

Enable trace messages. The tracestreams argument, if specified, is a comma-separated list of trace stream names (Chapter 9, Trace Streams).

--version

Show version information and exit.

Environment

MIKTEX_TRACE

Comma-separated list of trace stream names (see Chapter 9, Trace Streams). If this variable is set, then MiKTeX programs will write trace messages into the configured log sink.
