Directory support/latex2rtf

latex2rtf is a translator program that translates LaTeX text into the
RTF format used by various text processors, most notably Word.

For the Copyright of the Program see the file Copyright.

Version 2.3.10 fixes a bug
(potential vulnerability in processing the LaTeX command \keywords{})

Version 2.3.9 switches to the recent version of Ghostscript.
Use eps2eps from Ghostscript instead of from MikTeX distribution. 
 Therefore changed the order of program folders in PATH setting
 in l2rshell.exe (windows GUI) as well as in l2rprep.bat
Modified latex2png script for compatibility with Ghostscript 9.14 and newer
(gs 9.14 and newer use a different eps2eps script producing better quality eps 
 files on the expense of containing binary stuff)

Version 2.3.8 fixes a bug
(previous versions inserted an extra blank after ! and ?)

Version 2.3.7 fixes a bug 
(\begin{equation}...\end{equation} caused double numbering when converting to bitmaps or eps)

Version 2.3.6 updated address of FSF in GPL license text

Version 2.3.5 fixes a bug 
(\begin{equation}...\end{equation} was output as $$...$$)

Version 2.3.4 adds basic support for tikz graphics

Version 2.3.3 fixes a bug (equations were split at \\ in align
environments when converting to bitmaps or eps)

Version 2.3.2 fixes a bug (when a temp folder was specified,
the temp folder name was not added to eps names in the text)
and enables conversion of equations to bitmaps or eps 
from documents needing pdflatex or xelatex.

Version 2.3.1 fixes two bugs: in PutEpsFile (variable eps was undefined)
and in funct1.c (figure numbers missing with "-F" option,
patch tracker no.3537371).

Version 2.3.0 contains some bug fixes and adds the possibility to 
convert equations and / or pdf and ps figures to eps
and insert the eps and / or bitmap file names in the rtf text.
The wordprocessing program by which the rtf is opened 
can then scan through the text, search for the inserted file names 
and replace them by actually inserting the figures.

Version 2.2.1 only contains minor changes needed to silence compiler
warnings, update documentation, and improve package distribution.  
No new functionality is included.

Version 2.2.0 has a bunch of minor bug fixes, adds support for the 
setspace package, adds support for \bibstyle, extends babel converage to
include british, greek, and frenchb languages, fix \graphicspath, improve
handling of cp1251 and support \accent23 for czech.

As of version 2.1.0, latex2rtf uses Unicode for all characters.  Since
most fonts are missing some special math characters, it is recommended
that the STIX fonts (http://www.mozilla.org/projects/mathml/fonts/)
be installed for best results.  

As of version 1.9.13, latex2rtf supports converting equations to
bitmaps.  This requires TeX and ImageMagick.  See scripts/README.

To install (on a UNIX system)
- Edit Makefile for your local configuration.  The default install
  is reasonable, but if you do not have root access, then you might
  need to set $PREFIX to be your home directory.
- make
- If this is not your first-time installation, you may want to preserve
  your old configuration (*.cfg) files. Copy them to a safe place before
- make check   (expect warnings but no errors)
- make install

latex2rtf – Convert into Rich Text Format

Translates text into RTF (Rich Text Format as used by Microsoft Word and the like). Graphics and tables are converted as are cross references and the bibliography; many packages are supported (in whole or as implementation of a subset of their commands) — for example, the whole of natbib is implemented.
