📌 Natively, the .DVI extension area is based on the output file from a TeX-based toolkit, such as LaTeX. Particularly, the .DVI makeup suggests internal availability of typesetting data to be sent to a printer afterwards. For proper processing of the .DVI content, the schema requires a proper .DVI consistent driver, although it focuses on “device-independent” foundation, suggesting it can be effortlessly opened and printed on nearly any kind of typographic output device. On the logic and hierarchy, the .DVI composition is nearly identical to a PostScript (.PS) node arrangement. As the practice uncovers, most of .DVI object instances are represented and visualized in binary constitution, considering that they cannot be recognized, reviewed, and opened up by a plain text editor or code viewer.
📌 Ordinarily, the noted file content is adapted for opening up, exploration and monitoring with the interference of LaTeX Editor, BaKoMa TeX, MiKTeX, DVII, Skim, LyX, Evince, Xdvik, or KDE Okular bundles, strictly designated for typesetting purposes and aims. Nevertheless, the format structure is perfectly comprehended by all branches of desktop infrastructures, and is distinguished by broad consistency with all formerly released and deployed Windows, macOS and Linux distributions.
