NAME
       sgml2latex  -  create LaTeX, DVI, PostScript or PDF output from a LinuxDoc DTD SGML source
       file

SYNOPSIS
       sgml2latex   [generic-option...]    [--output=tex|dvi|ps|pdf]   [--bibtex]   [--makeindex]
       [--pagenumber=n] --quick [--latex=hlatexp|platex] [--dvips=dvips|dvi2ps] file[.sgml]

DESCRIPTION
       sgml2latex  is an old and obsoleted form of the latex converter command of LinuxDoc-Tools.
       It is recommended to switch the new form linuxdoc -B latex now.	It  converts  a  LinuxDoc
       DTD  SGML  source  file to LaTeX output, using the nsgmls(1) or onsgmls(1) parser, and the
       sgmlsasp(1) translator.	Using the LaTeX output, and the latex(1) text formatter, you  can
       then  create  DVI  output, and PostScript output using the dvips(1) converter. Output will
       appear in file.tex for LaTeX output, file.dvi for DVI output, or  file.ps  for  PostScript
       output, where file is the name of the SGML source file.

       Using   the  LaTeX  output, and the pdflatex(1) text formatter, you can then create a nice
       PDF output, suitable for viewing with PDF viewers as xpdf(1), acroread(1) or ghostview(1).

       The attribute/value pair "output=latex2e" is set for conditionals.

OPTIONS
       sgml2latex accepts all the generic options described in	linuxdoc(1),  and  the	following
       specific options:

       --output=fmt, -o
	      Specify  the  desired  output  format.   The specifier fmt may be ``tex'', ``dvi'',
	      ``ps'', or ``pdf''.

       Note: This version does not overwrite/remove the intermediate files: tex file for dvi out-
       put,  or  tex/dvi files for ps output.  This is different behavior from the original SGML-
       Tools 1.0.9, so you are warned here.

       --bibtex, -b
	      Process the generated TeX with bibtex(1).

       --makeindex, -m
	      Generate a TeX index file suitable for processing with makeindex(1) from and  <idx>
	      and <cdx> tags present in the SGML source.

       --pagenumber, -n
	      Set the starting page number in the output DVI or PS file.

       --quick, -q
	      Do  only	one  pass  of  LaTeX formatting.  This is often not sufficient to produce
	      final output (because of references, etc.) but is useful for  spotting  TeX  errors
	      and justification problems.

       --pass, -P
	      The argument of the pass option is inserted just after the LaTeX preamble generated
	      by the document-type tag.  Specify the desired output format.   The  specifier  fmt
	      may be ``tex'', ``dvi'', ``ps'', or ``pdf''.

       --latex=alternate_latex_command, -x
	      This  option is currently for Korean and Japanese.  The alternate_latex_command can
	      be ``latex'' (default), ``hlatexp'' (for Korean), ``platex'' or ``jlatex'' (for Ja-
	      panese).	 This  option  can be used to render Korean document using HLaTeXp, or to
	      render Japanese document using pLaTeX/jLaTeX.  If not, HLaTeX should  be	installed
	      to  render  Korean  document.  On the other hand, Japanese document can be rendered
	      with jLaTeX
	       (which is the default when ``-c nippon'' is specified), so  if  you  already  have
	      jLaTeX, you may not need to install the pLaTeX.

       --dvips=alternate_dvips_command, -s
	      This  option  is	currently  for	Japanese.   The  alternate_dvips_command  can  be
	      ``dvips'' or ``dvi2ps''.	If you don't know this, then you may not need this.

       file   The SGML source file, named either file or file.sgml

FILES
       Many files and executables in /usr/share/linuxdoc-tools and /usr/bin are used.

BUGS
       None known.
