Thanks for the tips. It will require time even by copying the xdvi code
(which must be undestood before... -- it is not so easy to manage it
starting from scratch, I'm trying...). In any case I was referring to
the interaction of ps code with tex which is going on in pstricks,
(which being tricks are tricky to implement...). But I have not even
started to look at the problem yet so I cannot say if it will be really
difficult or not. Just a feeling. By now I'm in a really primitive
stage of development (and this is my first large project) and I'm
focusing to basic DVI rendering. (I want to be sure that it can be done
with the same quality -- and speed -- of pdf rendering).
If anyone would like to help I would be pleased.
