Terminal commands on MacOS to access Latex

Thanks again. Yes I've been able to run pdflatex from the command line using the output format option to create a dvi file instead of pdf. Then I ran dvipng (included in the TexLive distribution) also from the command line to convert the dvi file into png. This all seems to be working very well.

Terminal commands on MacOS to access Latex

Thank you. I've got this working now, but I'm finding that the pdf file that is produced by pdflatex is difficult to work with in the application that I'm writing. Are there any other tools in the MacTex distribution that can create a simple graphics file such as png? I know that LatexIt can produce...

Is it possible to use the Terminal program (or other command shell) in MacOS to send a Latex math expression string to Latex to generate a small graphic file with the formatted expression? I'm writing a program that does numerical integration, where the user enters the expression to be integrated. I...

Re: EqualX LaTeX Equation Editor Topic is solved

Thank you for the reply.

When I saw the requirement for Qt, I thought it was referring to Quicktime, so I didn't think I needed to install it. Unfortunately, I'm still running OSX 10.5 and Qt doesn't support anything prior to 10.6. So, it looks like I won't be able to install it.

Re: EqualX LaTeX Equation Editor Topic is solved

I tried to install this on my Mac, and was unable. There is no pre-compiled application available, so I had to follow the instructions to compile the source files. Building from source: Unarchive, open a Terminal window, go to the EqualX directory in the src folder and from there run the following c...

Re: LaTeXiT and Equation numbering

I think I've solved my problem. I used the following format: \begin{tabular}{l p{3.0in} r} & $<my_equation>$ & {\footnotesize (<my_eqno>)} \end{tabular} This allows 3 inches for the equation, left aligned, and then the equation number right aligned at the edge of the field. I needed to inclu...

LaTeXiT and Equation numbering

I'm using LaTeXiT to create equations for pasting into a webpage that I'm building. I'd like to add equation numbers lined up with the right margin of my page, but the webpage design software that I'm using, iWeb, doesn't have the provision to do this without a tremendous amount of additional work. ...
