LaTeX2HTML 99.2 Installation Manual
LaTeX2HTML Installation Manual

The installation procedure has changed substantially from version 98.3 on.
It now resembles more closely the GNU installation scheme, while providing
alternatives for Win32 and OS/2 users.

Step by step cookbook

Perl version 5.8 and below uses old style multiline regex matching.
Perl version 5.10 and above uses new style multiline regex matching.
Perl version 5.18 is buggy and prevents LaTeX2HTML from working correctly.
Perl version 5.22 seems to be OK.

On OS/2, rename CONFIG.BAT to CONFIG.CMD and modfify the PERL environment
setting (in CONFIG.CMD) in the following way:

set PERL=perl_

This is needed because this "version" of the Perl executable has some
additional features that are required by LaTeX2HTML.
If you want to make use of the Makefiles on OS/2 (this works if you have
the GNU utilities installed), then you should include a line
