HEVEA(1) General Commands Manual HEVEA(1)
hevea - A fast LaTeX to HTML translator
hevea [options] <texfile>
This manual page documents briefly the hevea command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the orig-
inal program does not have a manual page.
Using hevea it is possible to translate large documents written in LaTeX, such as manuals, books, etc., very quickly into HTML. All docu-
ments are translated as one single HTML file. The output file can be cut into smaller files, using the companion program hacha.
The Debian version of HeVeA differs from the original HeVeA distribution in that pictures are by default generated in the png format
instead of gif. The original behavior can be regained by feeding the following option to hevea:
and then invoke imagen with the -gif option.
Show hevea version and exit.
-v Verbose flag, can be repeated to increase verbosity.
-dv Add border around some of the block-level elements issued. Specifically, all DIV and P are bordered, while the structure of dis-
played material is also shown.
-s Suppress warnings.
Add dirname to the search path.
Make name the output basename. However, if name is base.html, then the output basename is base.
Prevent hevea from loading any file whose name is filename. Note that this option applies to all files, including hevea.hva and base
-fix Iterate HeVeA until a fixpoint is found. Additionally, images get generated automatically.
-O Optimize HTML by calling esponja.
Execute file prog and read the output. The file prog must have execution permission and is searched by following the searching rules
Deprecated by babel support. This option issues a warning message.
-help Print version number and a short help message.
Options controlling the generation of HTML code
Render symbols by using entities. This is the default.
Render symbols by English text.
Enable the output of some infrequent entities. Use this option to target browsers with wide entities support.
Produces MathML output for equations, very experimental.
Be strict in interpreting HTMLdefinition. In particular, this option disable size and color changes inside <PRE>... </PRE>, which
are otherwise performed.
Options for alternative output formats
-text Output plain text. Output file extension is .txt.
-info Output info format. Output file extension is .info.
Set the line width for text or info output, defaults to 72.
hacha(1), imagen(1), esponja(1).
