NAME a5booklet - copy two A5 pages from a .dvi file to one A4 page in another. SYNOPSIS a5booklet file[.dvi] DESCRIPTION A5booklet is a little script that allows you to typeset two A5 pages next to eachother on a single A4 page (landscape), combining pages from the original file in such a way that after double sided printing and some reshuffeling of the pages you get a nice a5 booklet that is ready for a staple in the middle. The script calls a very clever program dvidvi, written by Tomas Rokicki (the author of dvips), that does the real work. The output is written to two files, file-1.dvi and file-2.dvi dvips -ta4 -tlandscape file-1 then put the stack upside doen in the printer, and print the second file using dvips -ta4 -tlandscape file-2 Make sure that the bottom of the A5-pages is on the correct side of the paper when you put the stack back for printing the back side. After the two print jobs, you must re-shuffle the paper stack before you can staple it. SEE ALSO tex(1), dvips(1), dvidvi(1). BUGS The script has A4 papersize hardwired into it. Admittedly, a European-centered way of thinking. Page number 1 is always the first page in the original .dvi file, not the page numbered 1 by TeX's numbering scheme.OCTOBER 1997 A5BOOKLET(1)
