SLaTeX Wrapper

 (require slatex/slatex-wrapper)

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

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).

(slatex filename)  boolean?

  filename : string?

(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.

(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.

(latex filename)  boolean?

  filename : string?

(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.

(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.

NOTE: in order to run slatex, 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.
