Re: patch for inserting raw latex command to gnumeric for exporting latex files

Glad to see someone interested in it.

Since there are several people that commented on the list that they
handle the same issue by editing the LaTeX files after wards, it would
clearly be useful to them to have this incorporated in the plugin
distributed with Gnumeric.

Are you submitting your code for inclusion in Gnumeric and distribution
under the GPL?
Yes, I sent it for inclusion in Gnumeric and distribution under the GPL v2 or newer.


PS: I haven't looked at your patch in detail yet, but on first glance it
looks like something that could fit into the latex exporter, potentially
with some little changes.

Hi, all
Is there anybody can remember that I had asked how to insert raw latex command in gnumeric for exporting latex?
Some people on this list told me that no way. Now I implement it myself and the patch is attached(latex.patch).
Let me give some explanations:
1. I tested on gnumeirc-1.2.13, it worked fine. If you don't want to compile it from source, you may try the pre-compiled file. Extract the attachment to overrite your original html plugins, backup your files first! 2. To insert raw latex command, please put them between '\L{' and '}'. The '{'s and '}'s must be matched, that is to say you can't put a unmatched brackets in it, I think there is no need to to so in latex. What's in gnumeric What's in latex foo \L{E=m\cdot{}c^2} foo foo E=m\cdot{}c^2 foo
foo \L{{aa}{bb}{a{b}c}} foo               foo {aa}{bb}{a{b}c} foo
foo \L{a}\L{b} foo                              foo ab foo

I think this patch would be very convinient for those who take gnumeric as their latex table-maker, just as me. :-)

Any reply please cc to me, for I don't subscribe the mailing list.
