Via this script, ReST can therefore be used to prepare slides andpresentations.Installation============rst2beamer can be installed via setuptools / easy_install or manually. Consultthe enclosed manual for further details.Usage=====rst2beamer should interpret a reasonable subset of restructured text andproduce reasonable LaTeX. Not all features of beamer have been implemented,just a (large) subset that allows the quick production of good looking slides.These include:* Overlay lists (i.e. list items that appear point-by-point)* Beamer themes* Automatic centering and resizing of figures* Embedded notes and the output of note slides.* Arranging slide contents into columns.Some examples can be found in the docs/examples directory of thedistribution. In practice, rst2beamer can be used with pdflatex to get PDFversions of a presentation... note:: Depending on your platform, the script may be installed as rst2beamer, or rst2beamer.py.rst2beamer is called::  rst2beamer [options] [ []]For example:: rst2beamer infile.txt outfile.texwhere infile.txt contains the ReST and outfile.tex contains theproduced Beamer LaTeX.It supports the usual docutils and LaTeX writer (rst2latex) options, save thedocumentclass option (which is fixed to beamer) and hyperref options(which are already set in beamer). It also supports:--theme=THEME Specify Beamer theme.--overlaybullets=OVERLAYBULLETS                        Overlay bulleted items. Put [<+-| alert@+>] at the end                        of \begin{itemize} so that Beamer creats an overlay                        for each bulleted item and the presentation reveals                        one bullet at a time--centerfigs=CENTERFIGS                        Center figures. All includegraphics statements will                        be put inside center environments.--documentoptions=DOCUMENTOPTIONS                        Specify document options. Multiple options can be                        given, separated by commas. Default is                        "10pt,a4paper".--shownotes=SHOWNOTES Print embedded notes along with the slides. Possible                        arguments include 'false' (don't show), 'only' (show                        only notes), 'left', 'right', 'top', 'bottom' (show in                        relation to the annotated slide).Limitations===========Earlier versions of rst2beamer did not work with docutils 0.4, seemingly dueto changes in the LaTeX writer. While this has been fixed, most work has beendone with docutils snapshots from version 0.5 and up. In balance, users arerecommended to update docutils.More recently, changes in the LaTeX writer in docutils 0.6 broke rst2beameragain. We think all those bugs have been caught.Not all features of beamer are supported, and some - that deal with with pagelayout or presentation - may never be. Introducing complex syntax to achievecomplex and specific page effects defeats the point of ReST's simple andeasy-to-write format. If you need a complex presentation, use Powerpoint orKeynote.If the content for an individual slide is too large, it will simply overflowthe edges of the slide and disappear. Arguably, this is a sign you should putless on each slide.Credits=======rst2beamer is developed by Ryan Krauss __ andPaul-Michael Agapow __.
