The Active-DVI package

allows embedding programs into DVI files, along with a host of other features
for presentations (effects, links, transitions, ...). If you look at the demo
included with the distribution you will see a slide with a copy of the Ocaml
interpreter running inside a DVI page.

Files using ActiveDVI specials are still viewable with, for example, xdvi, but
of course most of the features are absent or mangled.
