6.3 DviDJc command line 

The syntax of the DviDJc programs dvi500c.exe and dvi550c.exe is as follows:
DVI5x0c.exe [ options ] dvifile
They support the following options:

-s<starting page> (default: 1 i.e. first in file)
-c<number of pages> (default: 9999 i.e. all)
-m<new magnification> (default: from dvi file)
-h<horizontal offset> (default: 78 (pixels)
-v<vertical offset> (default: 156 (pixels)
-f<font directory> (default: /usr/TeX/lib/tex/fonts/)
-t<TFMfile directory> (default: /usr/TeX/lib/tex/fonts/)
-o<outfile> (default: prn)

Note: These DVI-drivers do not support subdirectory searching. Another restriction is that the font and tfm directory parameters can only take one path. Therefore 4TeX calls the programs using the subdirectory ?:\emtex\tfmall for tfm files and ?:\emtex\texfonts\deskjet for font files. In case you need other fonts you will have to put them in the current directory, where the DVI-drivers will also scan for tfm and font files.

6.3.1 Interactive operation of DviVGAc 

DviVGAc is a screen previewer dedicated to dvi files generated for printing on color Deskjet series 500 printers. This dvi viewer is capable of showing the colors as they will appear when printed on paper.

The program supports the following keys:

[P] or [Backspace] : previous page
[N] or [Space] : next page
[C] : use colors (much slower)
[G] : use grey shades (faster)
[Q] : quit

The viewer supports a `moving magnifying glass'. It is activated by pressing one of the following keys:

Arrow keys : move the magnifying glass left, right, up or down
[Home] : move to the upper left corner of the page
[End] : move to the lower right corner

Note: Whenever you try to go to the next or previous page and your current position is either at the last or the first page the program will abort.

Note: If the viewer can't find a font file it will display boxes for all character in that font, using its tfm file.
