texi2dvi4a2ps - Compile Texinfo and LaTeX files to DVI or PDF
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
- -b, --batch
- -c, --clean
remove all auxiliary files
- -D, --debug
turn on shell debugging (set -x)
- -h, --help
display this help and exit successfully
- -o, --output=OFILE
leave output in OFILE (implies --clean);
Only one input FILE may be specified in this case
- -q, --quiet
no output unless errors (implies --batch)
- -s, --silent
same as --quiet
- -v, --version
display version information and exit successfully
- -V, --verbose
report on what is done
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.
The full documentation for
is maintained as a Texinfo manual. If the
programs are properly installed at your site, the command
should give you access to the complete manual.
