README.md

flatex.py

This "flattens" a LaTeX document by replacing all \input{X} lines w/ the text actually contained in X.

Copyright, 2012, John J. Horton (john.joseph.horton@gmail.com) Distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License See http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.txt for details.

It was inspired by: http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/21838/replace-inputfilex-by-the-content-of-filex-automatically/21840#21840

There are C and perl versions of this, but I wanted a pure python version to fit in w/ my existing paper-creating toolchain.

To use as a stand-alone script

python flatten.py inputfile.tex outputfile.tex

Limitations:

  1. It doesn't do \includes - just inputs.

  2. I haven't tested it for nested inputs (thought it's designed to work on files like).

  3. I haven't tested it for more complicated file arrangements e.g., realtive reference inputs that are more complex that just a file living in the same directory.

  4. I haven't tested it on anything other than Ubunut Linux 10

  5. The test case writes to the /tmp folder - so the test probably wouldn't work on Windows(?).
