       dvibook - rearrange pages in DVI file into signatures


       dvibook  [  -q  ]  [  -s<num> ] [ -i infile ] [ -o outfile ] [ infile [
       outfile ] ]


       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.

       Dvibook normally prints the page numbers of the pages  rearranged;  the
       -q option suppresses this.

       Dvibook does not adjust the parameters in the postamble; however, since
       these  values  are normally used only to size certain structures in the
       output conversion  programs,  and  the  parameters  never  need  to  be
       adjusted upward, this has not proven to be a problem.
