#### Less verbose latex output?

When I look at the latex command-line output, I sometimes overlook errors or
warnings due to the lots of messages latex displays. It it possible to tell

A LaTeX aware editor can parse the output for you, so maybe you don't need
to worry too much about latex verbosity; it's very likely though that your
latex recognize a -quiet switch. Try "latex --help" for further
information.

the following is an extract from the miktex (latex on Windows) manual:

The command-line switch -quiet suppresses all diagnostic messages. No
screen output is produced, unless there are errors. The -quiet
command-line switch implies -c-style-errors and
-interaction=batchmode, i.e. errors are shown in a "C style form" and
do not stop the compilation process.

For example, the input file foo.tex

Example 5.1. foo.tex

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
What's \This?
\end{documnt}

would cause TeX to print one error message, as in

C:\> latex -quiet foo.tex
foo.tex:3: Undefined control sequence
C:\>

i'm not sure if it'll work on a *nix type system...but hey...you didnt

all the best

Hello Joe,

my latex doesn't recognize -quiet. I use the latex from the
tetex-installation for Unix.

Convert LaTeX or LaTeX output to MS Word without preserving text
A conference requires that I submit both a Word document and a PDF file in the same typographic format. I can easily convert to a messy Word document, so I tried that, but they want it to be formatted exactly like the PDF. How can I convert a LaTeX file, PDF, DVI, &c. to a vector image with no text and then assemble them in a Microsoft Word document? This is probably not what you want, but just in case... screen capture each pdf page to a jpeg, and insert each jpeg into a separate page in the word document.

Are you sure that's going to satisfy the conference organizers? If they require a doc file, presumably they need to be able to cut & paste the text, which they will not be able to do if you have already converted the text to an image. Have you tried tex4ht? It produces nice .odt files, which can then be converted in OpenOffice into doc files, preserving most formatting. If you really want to make image files, you could probably get ImageMajick or Gimp to convert your pdfs into something that could then be imported int...

Customise the latex/tex log file output
I have question, how can I change the line wrap of the tex log file. In my machine (Mac OS X+TextMate+Texlive2009), the log file is wrapped at 80 characters. I wonder how can I change this behaviour, say change the line wrap to 120. More generally how can the log file be customised? Dose it depend on system environment variables or can be controlled by TeX parameters? woodbird <zhouyan1014@gmail.com> wrote: > I have question, how can I change the line wrap of the tex log file. > In my machine (Mac OS X+TextMate+Texlive2009), the log file is wrapped > at 80 characte...

Somewhat OT: SAS output in LaTeX
Hi all - I managed to get my SAS freq tables into LaTeX, thanks to the ods tagsets.latex2 info in the SAS-L archives (and copying the appropriate proc template from the SAS site). So I have very nice looking tables now. Ideally what we want is to take those numbers and put them into text, in a repeatable format. (So having written the code for SAS and LaTeX, we could give this all back to the generating department to run every few months, and we don't need to do it ourselves). i.e. I have a frequency table with 100 men, 60 women, 40 didn't answer. ...

latex output
Hi, The latex print function in sympy only can make latex code for math expression which includes at least a variable.

Is there a python package I can use to output latex code for math expression without variables? Thanks a lot. ...

Output for latex
Recently I've been making some fairly complex plots (surface plots and colour maps) for use in latex documents. As I understand it, there seems to be a dilemma between using one of the latex-specific terminals (latex, pslatex, epslatex, eepic, tikz, pstricks,...), which can create unreasonably large files, but allow you to have nicely- formatted text, and using one of the bitmap formats (png, jpeg, etc.) which generates small output but makes it difficult to give the labels, etc., a look consistent with the rest of the document. Is there some way of getting the best of both worl...

on tex and latex
Hi there. I have a question more strictly about latex, but the only group I found on my news server is alt.sex.fetish.latex. I've been reading the TeXbook, and I now I've been wondering why we have a latex executable in the distribution of latex. My distribution is pdfetex which seems to replace tex entirely. Reading the TeXbook, it seems that TeX, as designed in the book, seems powerful enough to allow abstractions written in pure TeX code. Apparently, there's something called e-TeX which pdfetex is a derivative, so I suppose there are extensions on the capabilities of Knuth's TeX. What are they? "Daniel C.

The UK TeX FAQ offers the following (brief) bits of advice: http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=LaTeXandPlain http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=plainvltx Personally, I'd recommend learning LaTeX over Plain TeX.

If you're a programmer, think "LaTeX is to C as Plain TeX is to assembly la...

We currently have several small applications running on independant Oracle databases and are looking to consolidatethose to a single RAC deployment.

From LaTeX to TeX
Greetings! As I get more confident with LaTeX and strive to do more and more complex things (which I know are possible, after seeing), I seem to come across a lot of TeX commands. Is this supposed to happen? Shouldn't LaTeX wrap all of TeX's functionality? And if not, what's the proper way to include these commands? Since more people must have come across this stage, could someone point me to useful resources on LaTeX - TeX integration?

cygwin latex problem: latex.exe points to pdfetex.exe and not to tex.exe , why?
hi; I think my PC is possessed with some spirit that is playing tricks on me. 2 days ago I made complete new fresh installation of cygwin 1.5.18 (latest) which includes complete tex installation. I always select to install everything. now, when I run the command latex, it invokes pdfetex instead: ----------------------- $which latex /usr/bin/latex$ ls -l /usr/bin/latex lrwxrwxrwx 1 win Users 11 Jul 11 23:33 /usr/bin/latex -> pdfetex.exe --------------------------- when I go to the earlier cygwin installation (I copied that to the side before), I see it was pointing to tex.exe instead: ----------------------- $cd /cygdrive/c/cygwin.BAD/bin$ ls -l latex lrwxrwxrwx 1 win Users 7 Aug 6 2004 latex -> tex.exe ------------------------- The only problem I see now is that when build the .ps document, the fonts look really bad. (and it takes much longer to convert .tex to ..dvi) However, when I convert the .ps file to pdf using ps2pdf, the fonts in the pdf document looks good. This is how I currently build things \$ cat build.sh latex mim latex mim dvips mim -o mim.ps ps2pdf mim.ps mim.pdf The file mim.ps contain bad looking fonts now (thet are not as sharp as before). My question is: why did latex installation decide to point latex command to pdfetex.exe when before it was pointing to tex.exe? I could actually forget about building the .PS file anyway, it is so much larger than the PDF file, and Iam not sure .PS is needed anyway since a .pdf file...
