I am confused, I thought it is like this

 srcltx.sty (via latex) source specials in dvi.
 vpe.sty (and vpe script) source specials in pdf.

Now inverse search from the pdf to the latex source is done by acrobat
reader (after having set appropriate editor environment
variable). (The same way as it is possible to do inverse search from
dvi to the latex source file).

The difference seems to me in forward search:
xdvi seems to have that functionality while I am not sure about the
pdf applications.

But how, does there exist any commonly used pdf reader which allow
that sort of jump (for me a rough position on a page would be sufficient.)
