# TeX and LaTeX

## Overview

TeX and LaTeX are powerful batch formatting and typesetting programs. TeX and LaTeX produce output in device-independent file (DVI) format. These dvi files are usually converted to PostScript format before printing.

## DVI and PostScript Utilities

dvips - convert dvi to PostScript
gv - view PostScript files
xdvi - view dvi files
xtex - an interface to all these utilities
