"latexml" - transforms a TeX/LaTeX file into XML.
latexml [options] texfile
--destination=file specifies destination file (default stdout).
--output=file [obsolete synonym for --destination]
--preload=module requests loading of an optional module;
can be repeated
--includestyles allows latexml to load raw *.sty file;
by default it avoids this.
--path=dir adds dir to the paths searched for files,
--documentid=id assign an id to the document root.
--quiet suppress messages (can repeat)
--verbose more informative output (can repeat)
--strict makes latexml less forgiving of errors
--bibtex processes the file as a BibTeX bibliography.
--xml requests xml output (default).
--tex requests TeX output after expansion.
--box requests box output after expansion
--noparse suppresses parsing math
--nocomments omit comments from the output
--inputencoding=enc specify the input encoding.
--VERSION show version number.
--debug=package enables debugging output for the named
--help shows this help message.
If texfile is '-', latexml reads the TeX source from standard input. If texfile has an explicit extention of ".bib", it is processed as a
OPTIONS AND ARGUMENTS
Specifies the destination file; by default the XML is written to stdout.
Requests the loading of an optional module or package. This may be useful if the TeX code does not specificly require the module (eg.
through input or usepackage). For example, use "--preload=LaTeX.pool" to force LaTeX mode.
This optional allows processing of style files (files with extensions "sty", "cls", "clo", "cnf"). By default, these files are ignored
unless a latexml implementation of them is found (with an extension of "ltxml").
These style files generally fall into two classes: Those that merely affect document style are ignorable in the XML. Others define
new markup and document structure, often using deeper LaTeX macros to achieve their ends. Although the omission will lead to other
errors (missing macro definitions), it is unlikely that processing the TeX code in the style file will lead to a correct document.
Add dir to the search paths used when searching for files, modules, style files, etc; somewhat like TEXINPUTS. This option can be
Assigns an ID to the root element of the XML document. This ID is generally inherited as the prefix of ID's on all other elements
within the document. This is useful when constructing a site of multiple documents so that all nodes have unique IDs.
Reduces the verbosity of output during processing, used twice is pretty silent.
Increases the verbosity of output during processing, used twice is pretty chatty. Can be useful for getting more details when errors
Specifies a strict processing mode. By default, undefined control sequences and invalid document constructs (that violate the DTD) give
warning messages, but attempt to continue processing. Using --strict makes them generate fatal errors.
Forces latexml to treat the file as a BibTeX bibliography. Note that the timing is slightly different than the usual case with BibTeX
and LaTeX. In the latter case, BibTeX simply selects and formats a subset of the bibliographic entries; the actual TeX expansion is
carried out when the result is included in a LaTeX document. In contrast, latexml processes and expands the entire bibliography; the
selection of entries is done during postprocessing. This also means that any packages that define macros used in the bibliography must
be specified using the "--preload" option.
Requests XML output; this is the default.
Requests TeX output for debugging purposes; processing is only carried out through expansion and digestion. This may not be quite
valid TeX, since Unicode may be introduced.
Requests Box output for debugging purposes; processing is carried out through expansion and digestions, and the result is printed.
Normally latexml preserves comments from the source file, and adds a comment every 25 lines as an aid in tracking the source. The
option --nocomments discards such comments.
Specify the input encoding, eg. "--inputencoding=iso-8859-1". The encoding must be one known to Perl's Encode package. Note that this
only enables the translation of the input bytes to UTF-8 used internally by LaTeXML, but does not affect catcodes. In such cases, you
should be using the inputenc package. Note also that this does not affect the output encoding, which is always UTF-8.
Shows the version number of the LaTeXML package..
Enables debugging output for the named package. The package is given without the leading LaTeXML::.
