dvipdfmx – An extended version of dvipdfm
Dvipdfmx (formerly dvipdfm-cjk) is a development of dvipdfm created to support multi-byte character encodings and large character sets for East Asian languages. Dvipdfmx, if “called” with the name dvipdfm, operates in a “dvipdfm compatibility” mode, so that users of the both packages need only keep one executable.
A secondary design goal is to support as many “PDF” features as does pdfTeX.
There being no documentation as such, users are advised to consult the documentation of dvipdfm (as well, of course, as the package Readme.
The current version of the package is no longer maintained on CTAN as a separate entity; development now takes place within the TeX Live framework, and it is no longer available as a separate package. For download, support, and other information, please see TeX Live.
