Indicates which format file TeX uses upon activation. The default format file is TEX_FORMATS:SPLAIN.FMT. This is the SLITeX format discussed in Appendix A of "A Document Preparation System: LaTeX." /INIT /INIT /NOINIT
Indicates that you wish run TeX in the initialization, or INITeX, mode. This mode is used to compile format files. /BATCH Set batch mode -- no interaction on errors and no output to the terminal. Normally, TeX is set up for interactive use; it stops when it encounters an error and allows you to correct it, and prints status and diagnostic information at the terminal. The /BATCH setting is preferred for batch use; TeX will barrel on through as though you had specified `BATCHMODE' in the input file or typed `Q' in response to the first error message. /OUTPUT /OUTPUT[=file-spec] /NOOUTPUT
Controls where the output of the command is sent. If you do not enter the qualifier, or if you enter /OUTPUT without a file specification, the output is sent to a file with the same name as the input file, only with the extension .DVI.
If you enter /NOOUTPUT, output is suppressed. /LOG_FILE /LOG_FILE[=file-spec] /NOLOG_FILE
Controls where the log output of the command is sent. If you do not enter the qualifier, or if you enter /LOG_FILE without a file specification, the log output is sent to the a file with the same name as the input file, only with the extension .LIS.
If you enter /NOLOG_FILE, the log output file is suppressed. /TEXFONTS /TEXFONTS=(name,...) D=/TEXFONTS=TEX_FONTS:
Specify directories containing TeX Font Metric (TFM) font definition files, and the order in which they will be searched to locate each TFM file. A null value in the list indicates the current directory. The search procedure TeX uses to locate font files is to search each of directories specified by the /TEXFONTS option.
A complete TFM file name specification is formed by combining a TFM file name from the input file with a default directory and default file type of TFM. It is normal practice to specify only a simple file name in the input file and let TeX supply the defaults, since this tends to protect the user from installation dependencies and changes to TeX. When searching for a TFM file, TeX will try alternate default directories until it finds the TFM file or runs out of alternatives.
Default is /TEXFONTS=(TEX_FONTS); TeX looks in the directory associated with the logical name TEX_FONTS for font definition files. /TEXINPUTS /TEXINPUTS=(name,...)
Specify directories containing input files, and the order in which they will be searched to locate each input file. A null value in the list indicates the current directory. This qualifier operates in a manner similar to /TEXFONTS. The search procedure TeX uses to locate input files is to first search the default directory and then search each of the directories specified by the /TEXINPUTS option.
Default is /TEXINPUTS=(TEX_INPUTS); TeX looks in the directory associated with the logical name TEX_INPUTS. /TEXFORMATS /TEXFORMATS=(name,...)
Specify directories containing format files, and the order in which they will be searched to locate each input file. A null value in the list indicates the current directory. This qualifier operates in a manner similar to /TEXFONTS. The search procedure TeX uses to locate input files is to search each of the directories specified by the /TEXFORMATS option.
Default is /TEXFORMATS=(TEX_FORMATS); TeX looks in the directory associated with the logical name TEX_FORMATS. /EDITOR /EDITOR=name D=/EDITOR=(TEX_EDIT:) /NOEDITOR
Specify the editor TeX is to use when the "e" (edit) option is used when TeX finds an error. The editors can be callable editors such as TPU or EDT, or command procedures. This works similarly to how the MAIL program allows use of editors under SEND/EDIT.
The default is to use the editor defined by the logical name TEX_EDIT.
Valid callable editors are EDT, TPU, and LSE. Any other editor must be called by way of a command procedure. /DIAGNOSTICS /DIAGNOSTICS=[file-spec] /NODIAGNOSTICS
Create a Diagnostics file for the Language Sensitive Editor (LSE). /JOBNAME_SYMBOL /JOBNAME_SYMBOL
Indicates the name of a symbol in which TeX should store the name of the DVI file it writes. Default is /JOBNAME_SYMBOL=TEX_JOBNAME. /CONTINUE /CONTINUE /NOCONTINUE [D]
Indicates that TeX should continue after editing a file.
