PowerPoint is a convenient tool for people who work with other Microsoft software on Windows platforms; it is less useful to those who work with (La)TeX on UNIX systems. University users who tend to produce high quality slides by using (La)TeX prefer files to be displayed by a computer rather than printed on foils. Therefore, the idea behind this practical thesis is to understand the format of DVI files, since more and more DVI files currently available from many ftp sites, and build an application that provides highly stable service, functioning like PowerPoint, to view high quality slides of DVI files on Windows platform. The DVIReader is built on an architecture that separates functionality from concrete document format, is a viewer for (La)TeX's generic output format known as .dvi, and presents the 'pages' of the .dvi file one at a time as a slide show on the Windows platform. Also this thesis presents an object-oriented design methodology that is used to implement this architecture using JAVA application technology, and an implemented tool that supports all of the above functionality and more
