       dvi2dvi - Tweaks DVI files


       dvi2dvi [options] files...


       This  manual  page  documents briefly the dvi2dvi command.  This manual
       page was written for the  Debian  GNU/Linux  distribution  because  the
       original  program  does  not  have a manual page.  dvi2dvi is a program
       that can tweak DVI files - e.g. expands  virtual  fonts  in  given  DVI
       files,  changes  font names in given DVI files, decomposes 2-byte fonts
       into 1-byte subfonts, and so on.  The most common use of  this  program
       would be to translate DVI files generated by NTT jTeX to those of ASCII
