Application : datatooltk Author : Nicola L. C.

There is NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by law. DESCRIPTION =========== A Java GUI that can be used to create datatool.sty databases in datatool's internal format, which can be quickly imported into a LaTeX document using \input (or datatool's \DTLloaddbtex). It can also be used in batch mode to import data from SQL, CSV, XLS, ODS or probsoln.sty datasets. Tools are available to sort or shuffle or filter the database. The batch mode means that it can be incorporated into the document build process and provides a much faster build than using datatool's \DTLloaddb and \dtlsort commands. INSTALL ======= 1. Ensure you have the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed (java.com/getjava). 2. Download and run datatooltk-installer.jar (either double-click on the jar file, if supported by your operating system, or run java -jar datatooltk-installer.jar from a terminal). If you want to use the datatooltk plugins you need to ensure you have Perl installed. The installer should create the following subdirectories in the installation directory: - bin/ (contains scripts to run the application's .jar file) - doc/ (contains documentation if corresponding option was selected during the installation) - lib/ (contains the application, datatooltk.jar, the libraries required by the application, see below, and the application resource files) - man/ (contains the man file datatooltk.1 if documentation option was selected during installation) - src/ (contains the source code, if the source option was selected during installation) - Uninstaller/ (contains the uninstaller) Libraries ========= The datatooltk.jar file in the lib directory is the main application. The other .jar files are required libraries provided by other sources. The texparserlib.jar library is by the same author and is also GPL 3.0. The source code is available from https://github.com/nlct/texparser The other .jar files are third party libraries: - Java Help (https://javahelp.java.net/) GPL - Open CSV (http://opencsv.sourceforge.net/) Apache 2.0 License - MySQL connector (http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/j/) GPL - The Java Look and Feel Graphics Repository (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/index-138612.html) JLFGR License - Apache POI (http://poi.apache.org/) Apache 2.0 License - jOpenDocument (http://www.jopendocument.org/) GPL Source Code =========== The source code is bundled in the CTAN upload as datatooltk-src.zip. It can also be fetched from GitHub (https://github.com/nlct/datatooltk) or extracted during the installation process if the source code option is selected. Compiling PDF Documentation =========================== The documentation is contained within the src/doc/ subdirectory of the source code. The documentation source is in XML format src/doc/datatool-en.xml which is converted to both LaTeX and Java HelpSet files to provide the standalone PDF documentation and the built-in help accessed while the application is running. The conversion is performed by the Perl script included in the src/doc/ directory. The relative paths need to be maintained for the script to fetch the application resource files (src/resources/dictionaries/*.prop) to supply the labels for menus and buttons and for LaTeX to find the image files (src/doc/images/). Requirements: TeX, Perl. Either (requires arara): make -C src/doc datatooltk-en-GB.pdf Or: 1. cd to the src/doc directory. 2. Run the createdatatooltkdocs Perl script to create the .tex file Either: createdatatooltkdocs en GB Or: createdatatooltkdocs en US 3. Run arara on the resulting .tex file. For example: arara datatooltk-en-GB Alternative run pdflatex, makeindex and makeglossaries as per the arara directives at the start of the .tex file The man file datatooltk.1 can be created from src/doc/datatooltk.pod using pod2man.

datatooltk – A Java GUI for preparing datatool input
The package provides a Java GUI that may be used to create datatool databases in datatool’s internal format; such databases can be quickly imported into a LaTeX document using \input. Datatooltk may also be used in batch mode to convert from SQL or CSV or to import datasets from probsoln.
Tools are available to sort or shuffle the database.
