dvi2bitmap – Utility to convert TeX DVI files directly to bitmaps
A utility to convert TeX DVI files directly to bitmaps, without going through the complicated (and slow!) route of conversion via PostScript and PNM. The prime motivation for this is to prepare mathematical equations for inclusion in HTML files but there are many other uses beyond that. It can generate XBM and GIF bitmaps, plus PNG, if you have the libpng library installed. It uses the same kpathsea font-searching library as other TeX programs, again as long as you have the appropriate library installed. The program is written in C++, and incidentally provides a good object interface for DVI and PK files.
