/main/aspic/aspic

Line art generator

Aspic is a program that generates line art images from a text description of a picture that contains commands such as "line", "box", "circle", and "arc". Aspic's concept is similar to the "pic" command. Output is either encapsulated PostScript, or Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). Quite complex pictures can be constructed from Aspic's primitives, which include facilities for positioning text alongside graphics, and the use of colour.

script-based vector graphics language inspired by MetaPost - the GUI part

Asymptote is a powerful script-based vector graphics language for technical drawings, inspired by MetaPost but with an improved C++-like syntax. Asymptote provides for figures the same high-quality level of typesetting that LaTeX does for scientific text. . In the event that adjustments to the final figure are required, the preliminary Graphical User Interface (GUI) xasy included with Asymptote allows you to move graphical objects and draw new ones. The modified figure can then be saved as a normal Asymptote file.

extraction of elements from LaTeX documents as graphics

The purpose of preview is the extraction of selected elements from a LaTeX source, like formulas or graphics, into separate pages of a DVI file. A flexible and convenient interface allows it to specify what commands and constructs should be extracted. This works with DVI files postprocessed by either Dvips and Ghostscript or dvipng, but it also works when using PDFTeX for generating PDF files. . Currently, preview.sty is used by preview-latex, the WYSIWYG component of the AUCTeX editing environment; for generation of previews in LyX; as part of the operation of the ps4pdf and pst-pdf LaTeX packages; by the tbook XML system and some other tools.

/main/auctex/auctex

integrated document editing environment for TeX etc.

AUCTeX is a comprehensive customizable integrated environment for writing input files for TeX/LaTeX/ConTeXt/Texinfo using GNU Emacs. Currently XEmacs ships with its own AUCTeX version. . It supports processing source files by running TeX and related tools (such as output filters, post processors for generating indices and bibliographies, and viewers) from inside Emacs. AUCTeX allows browsing through the errors reported by TeX, while it moves the cursor directly to the reported error, and displays some documentation for that particular error. This will even work when the document is spread over several files. . AUCTeX can automatically indent LaTeX source, either line by line or for an entire document, and has a special outline feature which can greatly assist in getting an overview of a document. . AUCTeX is written entirely in Emacs Lisp, and may therefore be enhanced with new features for specific needs. It comes with a large range of handy Emacs macros. It is a GNU project, and documentation for all its features is accessible via the Emacs info browser.

pretty-printer for BibTeX databases

This is a pretty-printer and syntax-checker for bibliographic databases in the BibTeX format. It is a useful tool for canonicalizing the layout of personal bibliographies with entries fetched from many different sources.

Interactive program to edit BibTeX bibliographies

Bibcursed is a simple program to make life a little easier when using BibTeX bibliographies. It currently provides these main functions: . - Adding references to your bibliography. This is done with prompts so templates for the different entries (article, proceedings, etc) do not have to be remembered. Error checking is used so that the required fields have to be supplied, and incorrect fields cannot be entered. New entries are inserted into the 'correct' place in the BibTeX file - Clean and easy removal of entries - Viewing of entries and changing of fields - Easy searching of entries, including search by field

filters BibTeX files and translates them to HTML

Collection of tools for filtering BibTeX data bases and for producing HTML documents from BibTeX data bases: . - aux2bib extracts a BibTeX database consisting of only the entries that are refereed by an aux file. . - bib2bib is a filter tool that reads one or several bibliography files, filters the entries with respect to a given criterion, and outputs the list of selected keys together with a new bibliography file containing only the selected entries; . - bibtex2html is a translator that reads a bibliography file and outputs two HTML documents that are respectively the cited bibliography in a nice presentation, and the original BibTeX file augmented with several transparent HTML links to allow easy navigation.

BibTeX Converter

BibTeXConv is a BibTeX file converter which allows one to export BibTeX entries to other formats, including customly defined text output. Furthermore, it provides the possibility to check URLs (including MD5, size and MIME type computations) and to verify ISBN and ISSN numbers.

tool to manipulate BibTeX files

BibTeX provides an easy to use means to integrate citations and bibliographies into LaTeX documents. But the user is left alone with the management of the BibTeX files. BibTool is intended to fill this gap. BibTool allows the manipulation of BibTeX files which goes beyond the possibilities -- and intentions -- of BibTeX. . BibTool manipulates BibTeX database files through the command line front-end bibtool which accepts numerous options. Modifications are performed through resource instructions that allow the modification of the various internal parameters determining the behavior of BibTool; resource instructions can be grouped in resource files. The original BibTool distribution contains a sufficient set of resource file samples to perform basic, relevant manipulations. . BibTool contains a documentation written in LaTeX. . BibTool is written in C and has been compiled on various operating systems like flavors of UN*X and MSDOS machines.

/main/catdvi/catdvi

DVI to plain text translator

CatDVI translates a TeX Device Independent (DVI) file into a readable plaintext file. It aims to generate high-quality output that reproduces all aspects of the DVI file within the limits of the output medium. CatDVI uses Unicode internally and can output ASCII, ISO Latin 1 and UTF-8 Unicode. . CatDVI can be used for previewing TeX documents on character-cell displays such as traditional terminals and terminal emulators. It is also possible to use it in generation of plain text documents from TeX source, assuming that the document is written with this conversion in mind. . CatDVI is under development and as such yet incomplete. However, it is quite useful even in its current form and already outperforms some of its competition in some areas. . CatDVI requires that the TFM files for all fonts used in its input DVI files are installed or can be generated by kpathsea.

LaTeX class for presentations

chaksem is a LaTeX2e class for slides. Based on seminar, it adds support for running footers as well as itemised and numbered lists, with a layout that fits nicely to the sans serif font used for text. There is support for overlays, which includes the ability to accumulate text and images on the slides for online presentations. Printable lecture notes with collapsed overlays are also able to be generated from this class.

/main/chemeq/chemeq

Parser for chemical formula and equilibria

chemeq is a basic standalone filter written in C language, flex and bison. It inputs strings like: 2H2 + O2 ---> 2 H2O then it outputs LaTeX code and messages about the equilibrium of a chemical reaction. . example:~/src\$ echo "2H2 + O2 ---> 2 H2O" | chemeq -lc 2\,H_{2}\,+\,O_{2}\,\rightarrow\,2\,H_{2}O OK

/main/chktex/chktex

powerful TeX format

ConTeXt is a document-production system based, like LaTeX, on the TeX typesetting system. Whereas LaTeX insulates the writer from typographical details, ConTeXt takes a complementary approach by providing structured interfaces for handling typography, including extensive support for colors, backgrounds, hyperlinks, presentations, figure-text integration, and conditional compilation. It gives the user extensive control over formatting while making it easy to create new layouts and styles without learning the TeX macro language. ConTeXt's unified design averts the package clashes that can happen with LaTeX. . ConTeXt also integrates MetaFun, a superset of MetaPost and a powerful system for vector graphics. MetaFun can be used as a stand-alone system to produce figures, but its strength lies in enhancing ConTeXt documents with accurate graphic elements. . ConTeXt allows the users to specify formatting commands in English, Dutch, German, French, or Italian, and to use different typesetting engines (PDFTeX, XeTeX, Aleph, and soon LuaTeX) without changing the user interface. ConTeXt is developed rapidly, often in response to requests from the friendly user community.
