NAME¶dvibook - rearrange pages in DVI file into signatures
SYNOPSIS¶dvibook [ -q ] [ -s<num> ] [ -r ] [ -i infile ] [ -o outfile ] [ infile [ outfile ] ]
DESCRIPTION¶Dvibook rearranges pages from a DVI file produced by TeX into ``signatures'' for printing books or booklets, creating a new DVI file usable by any of the TeX conversion programs.
The -s option selects the size of signature which will be used. The signature size is the number of sides which will be folded and bound together; the number given should be a multiple of four. The default is to use one signature for the whole file. Extra blank sides will be added if the file does not contain a multiple of four pages.
By default, dvibook rearranges the pages into left-hand side binding signatures; the -r option switches to right-hand side binding signatures. This might be useful for pTeX vertical writing (tate-kumi) documents.
Dvibook normally prints the page numbers of the pages rearranged; the -q option suppresses this.
