xetex - extended TeX with native support for Unicode, OpenType, system fonts
xetex [options] [&format] [file|\commands]
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>.
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.
Generate XeTeX’s extended DVI (.xdv) output instead of pdf.
Run cmd instead of xdvipdfmx to translate xdv to pdf.
Set pdf media size to string.
Removals: -draftmode, -enc, -ipc, -ipc-start, -translate-file.
