Many of the parameterless options listed here can be turned off by
immediately suffixing the option with a zero; for instance, to turn
off page reversal if it is turned on by default, use
options that can be turned off in this way are
This is a handy summary of the options; it is printed out when you run dvips with no arguments.

PRINTERenvironment variable; use
-fto read it anyway. It also turns off the automatic sending of control D if it was turned on with the
-Foption or in the configuration file; use
-fto send it anyway.
-poption) is treated as a sequence number, rather than a value to compare with
count0values. Thus, using
-l=9will end with the ninth page of the document, no matter what the pages are actually numbered.
dvifile was called file
.dvi; if this option isn't given, any default in the configuration file is used. If the first character of the supplied output file name is
|, then the remainder will be used as an argument to
popen; thus, specifying
|lpras the output file will automatically queue the file for printing as usual. This option also disables the automatic reading of the
PRINTERenvironment variable, and turns off the automatic sending of control D. See the
-foption for how to override this.
-loption) is treated as a sequence number, rather than a value to compare with
count0values. Thus, using
-p=3will start with the third page of the document, no matter what the pages are actually numbered.
-range separator can also be a
in the configuration file option descriptions. You can also specify
-t landscape, which rotates a document by 90 degrees. To rotate a document whose size is not letter, you can use the
-toption twice, once for the page size, and once for
landscape. The upper left corner of each page in the
dvifile is placed one inch from the left and one inch from the top. Use of this option is highly dependent on the configuration file. Note that executing the
a4or other PostScript operators cause the document to be nonconforming and can cause it not to print on certain printers, so the default paper size should not execute such an operator if at all possible.
