Dvipdfm tool for SCons

## Project description

This is dvipdfm tool for SCons. It is derived from the dvipdf tool present in SCons core. The code has been adapted to enable usage of dvipdfm program.

## Installation

There are few ways to install this tool for your project.

### From pypi

This method may be preferable if you build your project under a virtualenv. To add dvipdfm tool from pypi, type (within your wirtualenv):

pip install scons-tool-loader scons-tool-dvipdfm

or, if your project uses pipenv:

pipenv install --dev scons-tool-loader scons-tool-dvipdfm

[dev-packages]
scons-tool-dvipdfm = "*"

The tool will be installed as a namespaced package sconstool.dvipdfm in project’s virtual environment. You may further use scons-tool-loader to load the tool.

### As a git submodule

1. Create new git repository:

mkdir /tmp/prj && cd /tmp/prj
git init
2. Add the scons-tool-dvipdfm as a submodule:

git submodule add git://github.com/ptomulik/scons-tool-dvipdfm.git site_scons/site_tools/dvipdfm
3. For python 2.x create __init__.py in site_tools directory:

touch site_scons/site_tools/__init__.py

this will allow to directly import site_tools.dvipdfm (this may be required by other tools).

## Usage examples

Converting existing *.dvi file to *.pdf:

# SConstruct
env = Environment(tools=['dvipdfm'])
env.DVIPDFM('foo.dvi')

Compiling LaTeX document to *.dvi and generating *.pdf file with the DVIPDFM builder (note, the tex or default tool(s) must be loaded):

# SConstruct
env = Environment(tools=['tex', 'dvipdfm'])
env.DVIPDFM('foo.tex')
