Berthold Höllmann's PyLaTeX module


Description

This directory contains a module with three submodules.
LaTeX.py
Write your LATEX code in python strings, generate the LATEX output file and proccess it by latex and dvips.
LaTeXPy, LaTeXPy.py, python.sty
embedd python command in a LATEX file, then proccess it by a script which evaluates the python codes and inserts the result into the LATEX file.

Put python.sty somewhere into your TEX searchpath before running latex. When using teTeX a nice place would be .../texmf.local/tex/latex/misc/ (don't forget to run texhash).

UnitPrint.py
Prepare numbers and instances of 'PhysicalQuantities' for printing.
genereate_doc.py is used to genereate html documentation from the above using pythondoc.

Documentation

LaTeXPy

LaTeXPy <input> [<output>]

Processes the LaTeX file <input> using the LaTeXPy package. If <output> is given it will be used for output, otherwise the file '<X>.tex' leads to the output '<X>-2.tex'.

The package

Only avaible documentations are the generated documentation. I used pythondoc to genereate this documentation.
