       klatexformula - GUI and CLI to generate images from LaTeX formulas


       klatexformula [OPTIONS] [filename1 [...]]


       KLatexFormula by Philippe Faist

       An easy-to-use graphical application and command-line interface for generating images from
       LaTeX equations.

   Execution Modes:
              klatexformula [filename1 [...]]

              Opens klatexformula Graphical User Interface (GUI)

              klatexformula [OPTIONS]

              Performs actions required by [OPTIONS], and exits

              klatexformula --interactive [OPTIONS] [filename1 [...]]

              Opens the GUI and performs actions required by [OPTIONS]

              If additional  filename  arguments  are  passed  to  the  command  line,  they  are
              interpreted as library files to load into the library (only in interactive mode).


       -I, --interactive

              Runs  KLatexFormula  in  interactive  mode  with  a  full-featured  graphical  user
              interface. This option is on by default,  except  if  --input  or  --latexinput  is

       -i, --input <file|->

              Specifies a file to read latex input from.

       -l, --latexinput <expr>

              Specifies the LaTeX code of an equation to render.

       -P, --paste-clipboard

       -S, --paste-selection

              Specifies that the LaTeX code should be pasted from the system clipboard or current
              mouse selection. Works only in interactive mode.

       -n, --noeval

              Do not evaluate the LaTeX equation given, leave it to the  user  to  click  on  the
              "Evaluate" button. This option may only be used in interactive mode.

       -B, --base64arg

              Specifies that the argument to the option immediately following this one is encoded
              in base64. For example:

              klatexformula --base64arg --latexinput="YV4yK2JeMj1jXjI="

              will use the latex code "a^2+b^2=c^2".  This option can be specified more than once
              on the command line, each time indicating that the argument to the immediately next
              option is encoded in base64.  This option can be useful when  scripting,  to  avoid
              the nuisance of having to escape latex code from the shell.

       -o, --output <file|->

              Specifies  to  write  the  output image (obtained from equation given by --input or
              --latexinput) to <file> or standard output.

       -F, --format <format>

              Specifies the format the output should be written in. By  default,  the  format  is
              guessed from file name extension and defaults to PNG.

       -f, --fgcolor <'#xxxxxx'>

              Specifies  a  color (in web #RRGGBB hex format) to use for foreground color.  Don't
              forget to escape the '#' to prevent the shell from interpreting it as a comment.

       -b, --bgcolor <-|'#xxxxxx'>

              Specifies a color (in web #RRGGBB hex format, or '-' for  transparent)  to  use  as
              background color (defaults to transparent)

       -X, --dpi <N>

              Use  N  dots per inch (DPI) when converting latex output to image. Defaults to 1200
              (high-resolution image).

       -m, --mathmode <expression containing '...'>

              Specifies which LaTeX math mode to use, if any. The argument to this option is  any
              string containing "...", which will be replaced by the equation itself. Defaults to
              "\[ ... \]"

       -p, --preamble <LaTeX code>

              Any LaTeX code that will be inserted before \begin{document}. Useful for  including
              custom packages with \usepackage{...}.

       -s, --userscript <user script>

              Call  a  specific  user  script  when running the backend. See the documentation in
              libklfbackend for more information. The script must understand and respond  to  the
              "--scriptinfo" option.

       --want-pdf [<ON|Y[ES]|T[RUE]|1 or OFF|N[O]|F[ALSE]|0>]

              If  set,  then  PDF  is  also internally generated. This setting should be detected
              automatically but you may adjust it if klatexformula guesses wrong.

       --want-svg [<ON|Y[ES]|T[RUE]|1 or OFF|N[O]|F[ALSE]|0>]

              If set, then SVG is also internally generated (via gs, note: not always available).
              This   setting   should  be  detected  automatically  but  you  may  adjust  it  if
              klatexformula guesses wrong.

       -q, --quiet [<ON|Y[ES]|T[RUE]|1 or OFF|N[O]|F[ALSE]|0>]

              Disable console output of warnings and errors.

       --redirect-debug <file>

              Redirects debugging output to the given <file>. If the file name does not end  with
              .klfdebug,  this  suffix  is  automatically appended to the file name.  If the file
              exists, it is silently overwritten.

       -d, --daemonize

              Run a separate, detached, klatexformula process and return immediately.  All  other
              options, like --latexinput, may still be given. They will be forwared to the daemon


              Obsolete. Since Klatexformula 4, no plugin system  is  available  and  plugins  are
              never loaded.

       --calcepsbbox [<ON|Y[ES]|T[RUE]|1 or OFF|N[O]|F[ALSE]|0>]

              Correct  the bounding box of the output for characters that don't report a complete
              or incorrect bounding box. (On by default.)

       --nocalcepsbbox [<ON|Y[ES]|T[RUE]|1 or OFF|N[O]|F[ALSE]|0>]

              Same as --calcepsbbox=<inverse of value given>

       --outlinefonts [<ON|Y[ES]|T[RUE]|1 or OFF|N[O]|F[ALSE]|0>]

              Convert embedded fonts in EPS and PDF to vector outlines  (previously,  gs  pswrite
              device  with  option  -dNOCACHE;  more recently, gs ps2write with -dNoOutputFonts).
              Useful for exporting to eg. Inkscape or Adobe Illustrator.

       --nooutlinefonts [<ON|Y[ES]|T[RUE]|1 or OFF|N[O]|F[ALSE]|0>]

              Same as --outlinefonts=<inverse of value given>

       --lborderoffset <N>

       --tborderoffset <N>

       --rborderoffset <N>

       --bborderoffset <N>

              Include a margin of N postscript points on  left,  top,  right,  or  bottom  margin

       --tempdir </path/to/temp/dir>

              Specify  the directory in which KLatexFormula will write temporary files.  Defaults
              to a system-specific temporary directory like "/tmp/".

       --latex <latex executable>

       --dvips <dvips executable>

       --gs <gs executable>

       --epstopdf <epstopdf executable>

              [OBSOLETE: EPSTOPDF NO LONGER USED] Specifiy the executable for latex, dvips, gs or
              epstopdf.  By  default,  they  are  searched  for  in  $PATH  and  in common system

       -Q, --qtoption <qt-option>

              Specify a Qt-specific option. For example, to launch KLatexFormula in Plastique GUI
              style, use

              klatexformula --qtoption="-style=Plastique"

              Note  that  if  <qt-option> begins with a '-', then it must be appended to the long
              '--qtoption=' syntax with the equal sign.

       -h, --help [<filename|&N>]

              Display this help text and exit.  If a file name is provided, the help  message  is
              appended  to that file. If the argument is "&<N>", then the help message is printed
              in file descriptor N. (Reminder: N=1 for standard output 'stdout', N=2 for standard
              error output 'stderr')

       -V, --version [<filename|&N>][:<format>]

              Display  KLatexFormula  version information and exit.  The optional output argument
              is handled as with --help, however it may also  contain  a  version  string  format
              preceded  by  a  colon  where  %k,  and  %q  and  %%  are  respectively replaced by
              klatexformula version, Qt version and a literal %.


              Create an image named filename.png from the equation 'a^2+b^2=c^2':

              klatexformula --latexinput 'a^2+b^2=c^2' --output filename.png

              Open klatexformula window with equation 'f(x)=-2\,x', but don't evaluate it:

              klatexformula -I --latexinput='f(x)=-2\,x' --noeval

              Open klatexformula window and return immediately to shell command:

              klatexformula -I --daemonize

              Print help message, but to standard output instead of standard error output:

              klatexformula --help='&1'

              When run  in  interactive  mode,  the  newly  evaluated  equation  is  appended  to
              KLatexFormula's history.

              When not run in interactive mode, no X11 server is needed.
