Options selected when xdvi is invoked

The most useful options here are:

Preceding a numeric value with a + symbol will cause the previewer to begin with the selected page (remember this is the DVI page number in the file).
- size
This chooses a scaling factor. The default factor is a value of three. Using a larger value produces a smaller image, which may be useful if you just want to look at the layout on the page. As an example, using

            xdvi - 5 test.dvi
will produce a scaled down image of the document test.dvi that will fit a complete page on to the screen, but which will not be particularly readable. (Note that a space is necessary between the `-' character and the digit.)
