Sorry, this file got let out of the original distribution.
This directory contains several tools to manipulate the DVI files produced
by TeX and LaTeX. Additionally, it includes a re-distribution of the
DVI library routines written by Chris Torek at the University of Maryland.
The utilities included are:
dviselect select specific pages from a DVI file
iptex print a dvi file on an Imagen
texx a dvi previewer for X-11 windows
texsun a dvi previewer for SunView windows
texx2 a much improved dvi previewer for X-11 windows
To install this package, read the documentation in the file
doc/installation.tex. The short instructions follow.
+ Change the binary path names in the ./Makefile.
+ Select a location for your ``font description'' file, and copy and
modify the file in fontdesc-example to suit your local installation.
Change the main makefile to use that path for variable FONTDESC
The default is /usr/local/lib/tex82/fontdesc
+ cd to texx2; Edit the Imakefile. Note that DEFAULT_TFM_PATH
defines the default path for finding .tfm files, just like TeX.
+ Build a Makefile from the Imakefile
+ run ``make texx2'' at the main level
+ texx2 should now be built. You'll need to install some fonts.
+ in run texx2/mftobdf -mag 1000 -scaled 1000 cmr10. If mftobdf
can't find your font, you've got a bad fontdesc file or the
path to it is wrong.
+ assuming that this works, edit texx2/buildfonts to suite your
local X configuration. I keep fonts in /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/cmr,
and have added this to my font path using
% xset +fp /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/cmr
% xset fp rehash
+ in texx2, run "buildfonts -mag 500 `cat FONTS` " to build a
fair number of standard fonts. Note that the default is
300 dpi. If you want a smaller set too, say ``-mag 333''.
+ You can use other DPI's -- both texx2 & mftobdf have switches
