Package: tetex-bin
Version: testing

when I invoke latex -output-format dvi toto.tex as explained in the manual page,
pdfetex still try to produce a pdf document.

the file is toto.tex:

\documentclass{article}
\title{Cartesian closed categories and the price of eggs}
\author{Jane Doe}
\date{September 1994}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
Hello world!
\end{document}

and the command produces a toto.pdf !

Moreover elatex is not available in this version.
So it is impossible to produce dvi file and use psfrag for example with this
version of the package.

Okay, since this was clearly a problem of misconfiguration on the user's
side, I close this bug.  If you need further assistance, feel free to
