dvipng makes PNG graphics from DVI files as obtained from TeX
and its relatives.  It is intended to produce anti-aliased
screen-resolution images as fast as is possible.  This makes
dvipng suitable for generating large amounts of images
dvipng does not read the postamble, so it can be started before TeX
finishes.  It can read options interactively through stdin,
and all options are usable. One can even change the input file through
this interface.
dvipng supports PK, VF, PostScript Type1, and TrueType fonts, color
specials and simple PostScript inclusion specials.
