CTAN sub­mis­sion – pre­view-la­tex-0.8.1.tar.gz

Date: April 13, 2004 10:16:44 AM CEST
----- For­warded mes­sage from David Kas­trup ----- I have up­loaded pre­view-la­tex-0.8.1.tar.gz and pre­view-0.8.1.tar.gz to the in­com­ing di­rec­tory of ftp.dante.de. (...) Here are the re­lease notes: Re­lease notes for ver­sion 0.8.1 of the pre­view-la­tex pack­age: pre­view-la­tex dresses up your LaTeX source by past­ing ju­di­ciously se­lected chunks (such as sin­gle for­mu­las) chopped from un­wieldy pre­view pages right over their source in the Emacs/XE­macs buffer. You get to have your eye candy and edit it, too. The em­ployed style file pre­view.sty is in­de­pen­dently use­ful for ex­trac­tion of se­lected text el­e­ments as im­ages. It now fully sup­ports pdf­tex in­clud­ing the tight­page op­tion. The pack­age is re­leased un­der the GNU Public Li­cense (GPL). At the cur­rent point of time, at least GNU Emacs-21.1 un­der the X win­dow sys­tem or XE­macs-21 in ver­sion 21.4.10 or later, AUCTeX (11.14 or later rec­om­mended, see be­low), a work­ing LaTeX in­stal­la­tion and GhostScript are re­quired. dvipng (ver­sion 1.0 or later), a very fast dvi con­verter avail­able from the same CVS archive, can also be used for con­ver­sion. Re­cent CVS ver­sions of GNU Emacs for Win­dows or MacOS Car­bon should also work. 0.8.1 fixes ma­jor bugs in code and RPMs for 0.8 which has been pulled. Cur­rent re­leases sup­port for the first time con­ver­sion with PDFLaTeX (how­ever, the fore­ground color of Emacs buffers ap­pears al­ways black here, dif­fer­ing re­ports and PDFLaTeX/GhostScript ex­per­tise wel­come), and con­ver­sion with dvipng. Sev­eral changes were done to the dump­ing pro­cess to get rea­son­able be­hav­ior when the "la­tex" ex­e­cutable ac­tu­ally is eTeX-based. The right mouse but­ton now has a con­text menu. It is now pos­si­ble to copy source text pas­sages with im­ages into mail buffers. The README file pro­vides ad­e­quate in­for­ma­tion for fir­ing up pre­in­stalled dis­tri­bu­tions, and point­ers how to pro­vide feed­back. The INSTALL file con­tains a spe­cial sec­tion with ad­vice for pack­age providers. There is also a file INSTALL.win­dows de­tail­ing in­struc­tions for users of that op­er­at­ing sys­tem. The home page is <URL:http://pre­view-la­tex.source­forge.net>, the SourceForge project page that among oth­ers of­fers anony­mous CVS ac­cess is lo­cated at <URL:http://source­forge.net/projects/pre­view-la­tex>. If you can spare the time, you can also com­ment on or rate this project at <URL:http://fresh­meat.net/projects/pre­view-la­tex>. Pay­pal do­na­tions to the main­tainer are also pos­si­ble via SourceForge. Ad­di­tional files can be found at <URL:http://prdown­loads.source­forge.net/pre­view-la­tex>: * If you don't have tex­info 4.0 or later in­stalled, pre­built doc­u­men­ta­tion files can be found there. * Tar­balls of pre­view-la­tex for all users, al­ter­na­tively RPMs for RedHat Linux. For the bi­nary RPMs, you will need the pre­view-la­tex-com­mon RPM as well as the Emacs-fla­vor spe­cific RPM. * AUCTeX is now lo­cated at <URL:http://www.gnu.org/soft­ware/auc­tex>. The down­load area should also pro­vide you with RPMs if you are us­ing RedHat Linux. ----- End for­warded mes­sage ----- Thanks for the up­load. I in­stalled it as sug­gested re­plac­ing the old file in CTAN:sup­port/pre­view-la­tex/ and CTAN:macros/la­tex/con­trib/pre­view/ Rein­hard Zierke for the CTAN team

pre­view – Ex­tract bits of a source for out­put

The pack­age is a free-stand­ing part of the pre­view-la­tex bun­dle. The pack­age pro­vides the sup­port pre­view-la­tex needs, when it chooses the mat­ter it will pre­view. The out­put may rea­son­ably be ex­pected to have other uses, as in html trans­la­tors, etc.
