NAME

xetex - extended TeX with native support for Unicode, OpenType, system fonts  

SYNOPSIS

xetex [options] [&format] [file|\commands]  

DESCRIPTION

XeTeX (xetex) is a TeX engine with native support for Unicode, OpenType, and system-installed fonts, using third-party libraries (such as ICU, HarfBuzz, and Freetype). It was developed by Jonathan Kew for SIL.

XeTeX includes the e-TeX extensions and many extensions from pdfTeX, sometimes with different primitive names.

XeTeX is now released as part of TeX Live <https://tug.org/texlive>.  

OPTIONS

XeTeX's handling of its command-line arguments is similar to that of the other TeX programs in the Web2C implementation. Here we list only additions/deletions of command line options which are specific to XeTeX; see etex(1) for common options. Additions:
-no-pdf
Generate XeTeX's extended DVI (.xdv) output instead of pdf.
-output-driver cmd
Run cmd instead of xdvipdfmx to translate xdv to pdf.
-papersize string
Set pdf media size to string.

Removals: -draftmode, -enc, -ipc, -ipc-start, -translate-file.
