EGSDVI is a program which runs under the EGS window system. It is
used to preview DVI files, such as are produced by TeX. EGSDVI
needs EGS version 6 or higher. TeX is a text-formatting program
by Donald Knuth for producing high-quality text output of
articles, scientific papers, books etc. DVI files contain the
type-set output of TeX and can be viewed on-screen (for which this
program has been written) or printed. Public domain TeX for the
Commodore Amiga is available on AmiNet and other FTP sources.
This program has the capability of showing the file shrunken by
various (integer) factors, and also has a `magnifying glass' which
allows one to see a small part of the unshrunk image momentarily.
Enhanced Graphics System Version 6 or higher.
EGS, the Enhanced Graphics System, is a high-performance 24 bit
true colour window system for the Commodore Amiga computers. It's
the first system that brings 24 bit drawin capabilities to the
Amiga. A demo version of EGS for the native Amiga chipset is
available on AmiNet. EGS is available for a lot of graphics
boards, among them EGS Spectrum, Piccolo and EGS 110.
