# detex – Strip TeX from a source file

Detex is a program to remove constructs from a text file. It recognizes the \input command.

The program assumes it is dealing with input if it sees the string \begin{document} in the text. In this case, it also recognizes the \include and \includeonly commands.

The author now considers this program to be “retired” and Piotr Kubowicz’s OpenDetex as its successor.
