SLaTeX Wrapper

 (require slatex/slatex-wrapper) package: slatex

To use SLaTeX as a standalone program, either drag your ".tex" file onto SLaTeX (on Windows or MacOS X), or type slatex file in a command shell.

NOTE: If you compile your ".tex" file without using slatex (i.e., by using slatex -n and then using latex directly), then your TEXINPUTS environment variable must contain a reference to the directory in which the most recent version of "slatex.sty" lives. That file resides by default in the "slatex" collection of the main installation.

In addition to the SLaTeX tools, this collection contains a parallel set of PDF-SLaTeX tools, which are identical except that they call pdf-latex rather than latex. In particular, there is now a launcher called (PDF-SLaTeX/pdf-slatex).

procedure

(slatex filename)  boolean?

  filename : string?

procedure

(pdf-slatex filename)  boolean?

  filename : string?
Accepts a string naming a file and runs slatex and latex on the file. It calls filename->latex-filename on filename.

pdf-slatex is like slatex except that it calls pdf-latex rather than latex, and produces PDF output instead of PS output.

procedure

(slatex/no-latex filename)  void?

  filename : string?
Runs slatex on the file named by filename, without calling latex. That is, it only processes the ".tex" file to produce the ".Z" files. It calls filename->latex-filename on filename.

procedure

(latex filename)  boolean?

  filename : string?

procedure

(pdf-latex filename)  boolean?

  filename : string?
Runs latex on the file named by filename. It calls filename->latex-filename on filename.

pdf-latex is like latex except that it calls pdf-latex rather than latex, and produces PDF output instead of PS output.

procedure

(filename->latex-filename filename)  string?

  filename : string?
Accepts a filename and, if that file exists, it returns it. If the filename appended with the suffix ".tex" exists, that filename is returned. Otherwise, an exception is raised.
