PNG graphics from TeX DVI files.

'dvipng' makes PNG graphics from DVI files as obtained from TeX and its relatives. It is the fastest bitmap-rendering code for DVI files; on a fairly low-end laptop, it takes less than a second to generate 150 one-formula images. Furthermore, it does not read the postamble, so it can be started before TeX finishes. There is a -follow switch that makes dvipng wait at EOF for further output, unless it finds the POST marker that indicates the end of the DVI. It supports PK and VF fonts, color specials, and more.
