texi2dvi - convert Texinfo documents to DVI or PDF
texi2dvi [OPTION]... FILE... texi2pdf [OPTION]... FILE... pdftexi2dvi [OPTION]... FILE...
Run each Texinfo or (La)TeX 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 ((La)TeX or Texinfo). To process (e)plain TeX files, set the environment variable LATEX=tex. When invoked as `texi2pdf' or given the option --pdf generate PDF output. Otherwise, generate DVI. General options: -b, --batch no interaction -D, --debug turn on shell debugging (set -x) -h, --help display this help and exit successfully -o, --output=OFILE leave output in OFILE; only one input FILE is allowed -q, --quiet no output unless errors (implies --batch) -v, --version display version information and exit successfully -V, --verbose report on what is done --max-iterations=N don't process files more than N times  --mostly-clean remove auxiliary files or directories from previous runs (but not the output) Output format: --dvi output a DVI file [default] --dvipdf output a PDF file via DVI (using a dvi-to-pdf program) --html output an HTML file from LaTeX, using HeVeA --info output an Info file from LaTeX, using HeVeA -p, --pdf use pdftex or pdflatex for processing --ps output a PostScript file via DVI (using dvips) --text output a plain text file from LaTeX, using HeVeA TeX tuning: -E, --expand macro expansion using makeinfo -I DIR search DIR for Texinfo files -l, --language=LANG specify LANG for FILE, either latex or texinfo --no-line-error do not pass --file-line-error to TeX --shell-escape pass --shell-escape to TeX --src-specials pass --src-specials to TeX --translate-file=FILE use given charset translation file for TeX -t, --command=CMD insert CMD in copy of input file Any CMD strings are added after @setfilename for Texinfo input, or in the first line for LaTeX input. Multiple values accumulate. Build modes: --build=MODE specify the treatment of auxiliary files [local] --tidy same as --build=tidy -c, --clean same as --build=clean --build-dir=DIR specify where the tidy compilation is performed; implies --tidy; defaults to TEXI2DVI_BUILD_DIRECTORY [.] The MODE specifies where the TeX compilation takes place, and, as a consequence, how auxiliary files are treated. The build mode can also be set using the environment variable TEXI2DVI_BUILD_MODE. Valid values of MODE are: `local' compile in the current directory, leaving all the auxiliary files around. This is the traditional TeX use. `tidy' compile in a local *.t2d directory, where the auxiliary files are left. Output files are copied back to the original file. `clean' same as `tidy', but remove the auxiliary directory afterwards. Every compilation therefore requires the full cycle. The values of these environment variables are used to run the corresponding commands, if they are set: BIBER BIBTEX DVIPDF DVIPS EGREP HEVEA LATEX MAKEINDEX MAKEINFO PDFLATEX PDFTEX SED T4HT TEX TEX4HT TEXINDEX TEXINDY THUMBPDF_CMD Regarding --dvipdf, if DVIPDF is not set in the environment, the following programs are looked for (in this order): dvipdfmx dvipdfm dvipdf dvi2pdf dvitopdf. If Texinfo is installed on your site, then the command info texi2dvi should give you access to more documentation.
