Usage

<<TexToPng arguments>>

Arguments

Argument

Description

Default value

tex

TeX Commands (default: text mode), use $...$ for inline math formula style and $$...$$ for large formula style

magstep

magnify image by (1.2 to the magstep)

img

Image type (png, jpeg or gif), if chosen image type is not available use the first possible from png, gif, jpeg (in that order)

png

subslash

on or off: substitute slashes by backslashes (to avoid the backslash bug of the database pear interface)

off

antialias

on or off: render ps to img with antialias option. This produces higher quality output but is slower and needs more disk space.

transparent

on or off: produce transparent background instead of white background. Seems to be buggy (in pstoimg - not my fault)

center

on or off

off

Examples

This produces a little help screen:

<<TexToPng>>

A simple formula:

<<TexToPng tex="$x^2$" >>
$x^2$

A more complex formula:

<<TexToPng tex="$$/int^/infty_{-/infty} dx {1 /over /sqrt {x^2+1}}$$" subslash="on" >>
$$/int^/infty_{-/infty} dx {1 /over /sqrt {x^2+1}}$$
