CYAN submission – preview-latex-0.7.4.tar.gz

Date: November 26, 2002 11:12:16 AM CET
----- Forwarded message from David Kastrup ----- I have uploaded preview-latex-0.7.4.tar.gz and preview-0.7.4.tar.gz to the incoming directory of ftp.dante.de. Its license is the GPL. I would recommend installing it in the following way: Put the packed archive preview-latex-0.7.4.tar.gz under support/preview-latex/ (...) Unpack preview-0.7.4.tar.gz in the directory macros/latex/contrib/supported/preview/ It contains just README-preview, preview.dtx and preview.ins. The reason is that the preview.dtx file can also be used as a standalone LaTeX style for extracting selected elements from a LaTeX source into separate pages of a DVI file. Previous versions of preview-latex can be deleted. Here are the release notes: Release notes for version 0.7.4 of the preview-latex package: preview-latex dresses up your LaTeX source by placing judiciously selected chunks (such as single formulas) chopped from unwieldy preview pages right into its Emacs/XEmacs buffer, while keeping the original source readily accessible. 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. 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, AUC TeX (11.11 recommended, see below), a working LaTeX installation and GhostScript are required. This version also supports XEmacs-21, best in version 21.4.9 or later. The various Windows ports of XEmacs should work out of the box. Recent CVS versions of Windows GNU Emacs could conceivably be made to work, too, but the jury is still out on that one. Release 0.7.4 is a consolidation release containing mostly bug fixes. Several interoperatibility problems under Windows and with various GhostScript versions have been dealt with. The previous release lead to problems when buffers without associated file name were put into LaTeX-mode. If this occured while first loading preview-latex, compatibility macros caused further problems with XEmacs. As a promotional measure, preview-at-point has been added to the tool bar. 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. 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>. 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. * AUC TeX can be found at several places, but if you want the latest 11.11 (alpha, but stable AFAIK) with no known issues concerning preview-latex, you can find it there as well. * RPMs for preview-latex and AUC TeX are provided for users of RedHat Linux. For the binary RPMs, you will need the preview-latex-common RPM as well as the Emacs-flavor specific RPM. The RPMs require a few packages that should be readily available in current distributions. RedHat 7.3 contains Emacs-21.2 and GhostScript-6.52 which are about the minimum versions to be recommended. Later releases should work fine. XEmacs in current distributions will still be affected with a serious display bug, see the PROBLEMS file or the respective manual section. ----- End forwarded message ----- Thanks for the upload. I replaced the contents of CTAN:/tex-archive/support/preview-latex/ CTAN:/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported/preview/ with the new version as suggested. 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.
