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.
