dvii – Extract information from a DVI file

A utility written in C that extracts information from a DVI file. Information displayed can include a summary of the file comment (usually the date the file was compiled), file size, the number of (physical) pages, and the number of fonts. More detailed information may also include font names for all fonts used, lists of the fonts which appear on each page, a list of physical page number/ page number pairs, and a list of all \specials and the pages on which they appear.

To compile, you need a C compiler along with the standard C libraries but precompiled executables are available for DOS, Win 9X/NT, Solaris, OSF/1, and Linux.
