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,  Open-
       Type,  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.
