program is an enhanced version of the "dvisun" command designed to run under
suntools on SUN3s.

After each page of the
output is displayed the program will wait for a response from
the user. Type

page of the document up, down, left or right. This provides a facility to
examine the entire page if the page is larger than the screen.
the previous page. <RETURN> goes to the next page. When a new page is
displayed the top left corner of the page will be displayed in the top
left corner of the screen.
Multiple pages may be skipped forwards or backwards by entering
to skip n pages. The program will not skip past the begining or the end
of the document. Prior to display of the first page in the
document several pages may be skipped by including a
option on the command line. This will cause n pages to be skipped
prior to displaying the first page on the screen.
the program to exit.
The 'm' and 'M' keys provide the user with a pager (as 'more').
Pressing these keys is equivalent to a sequence of ' ' and 'k'.
After the document is processed a list of errors is printed
on standard error. This error listing is also saved in
the file dvifile.loh. The creation of the log file may be prevented
by using the
option when invoking the program.
This is a `bare bones' DVI-to-Sun program. Minimal error checking
is done. For more complete error checking
should be run.
Ocasionally there may be insufficent memory to hold the information about
all of the fonts in the system. Portions of the document may be previewed
by including the
option on the command line. This will prevent the preloading of all fonts
into the system and instead use demand loading of the font tables.
Some new keys have been added to the original dvisun program
to make texview perform like any other Berkeley
program. The lowercase keys
l, d, u, r
of the original dvisun have been replaced by
h, j, k, l
but it is still possible to use the old keys as uppercases (L, D, U, R).

TeX DeVice Independent output file
TeX default font rasters
When using fonts with decent resolution only part of a page appears
on the screen.
For unexplained reasons, texview logs you out when it encounters a request
for a non-existant PXL file.
The number of fonts files is limited (see in the sources for current limitation).
A limitation of the maximum number of opened files for a process makes it
sometimes impossible to close or move the texview window. It may also lead to a
core dump. So be careful when TeXviewing a text with too many fonts.
Mark Senn wrote the early versions of this program for the BBN BitGraph.
Stephan Bechtolsheim, Bob Brown, Richard Furuta, James Schaad
and Robert Wells improved it. Norm Hutchinson ported the program to the Sun.
Yves Ledru ported it under suntools.
