+This program is not documented by the authors so [Debian] uses undocumented(2) for it. It doesn't appear to be very successful program either. It is very similar to dvips(1) (which works nicely) except that it appears to ignore any configuration that dvips(1) may have. From the script:  
+ # This script prints a dvi file using dvips regardless of the actual  
+ # configuration of dvips.  
-undocumented - No manpage for this program, utility or function .  
+In particular it references __/usr/lib/texmf/dvips__ which is presumably where the dvips(1) configuration was once upon a time. It's certainly not there on my vanilla install boxes. Probably should be __/etc/texmf/dvips__
+However, someone somewhere seems to have packaged it with [a useful manpage |]:  
-This __program, utility__ or __function__ does not  
-have a useful manpage. Please do __not__ report this as a  
-bug, because this has already been reported as a bug; when a

+dviprint is a wrapper around dvips(1) that adjusts the destination file and printer arguments (-o and -P) to handle variations in install configurations (e. g., whether dvips sends its output directly to a printer or writes to a file). It is part of the Debian packaging of the LyX editor.
