In dvi-mode LaTeX produces a Device Independent Format (.dvi) file which is usually converted to PostScript (.ps) or the Portable Document Format (.pdf). This tag is about the classic latex compiler which is now pdflatex in dvi-mode. Questions about the DVI format itself should be tagged with directly.

This tag was created after the discussion How to tag questions specifically about the classic DVI-producing latex compiler?
