NAME

       texdirflatten - Collects all components of a (La)TeX file in a single output directory --
       i.e., flattens its hierarchy.

SYNOPSIS

       texdirflatten [-1|--onetex] [-f|--file input.tex] [-o outputdir]
                  [--imgexts .ext1,.ext2,...] [--debug] [-V|--version] [-?|--help]

DESCRIPTION

       This Perl script parses a LaTeX file recursively, scanning all child files, and collects
       details of any included and other data files, such as graphics and BiBTeX bibliography
       files. These component files, are then all put into a single directory (thus "flattening"
       the document's directory tree). This is useful in distributing manuscripts to
       collaborators or in submitting to journals.

OPTIONS

       --file, -f input.tex
           Specifies input (La)TeX file.

       --onetex, -1
           If specified, produces a single TeX file by expanding all \input and \include commands
           in place.

       --output, -o outputdir
           Directory to collect all files. texdirflatten will copy each source file, graphics and
           bibliography file to this directory. It will be created if it is unexistent. If
           unspecified, it defaults to "flat/".

       --imgexts .ext1,.ext2[,...]
           Prepends to the prioritized list of image extensions to search when trying to find the
           image to copy to output folder. The first file with the extension found will be copied
           and search stopped. Default order is "", ".eps", ".pdf", ".pstex" (note that it
           includes files with no extension). If using pdflatex, one may want to add PDF before
           EPS with "--imgexts .pdf". Don't forget the dot before the extension!

       --debug
           Enables copious amounts of debugging output - useful if something is going wrong.

       --version, -V
           Displays the current version number and the usage and exits.

       --help, -?
           Show this manual page.

EXAMPLES

       The following example scans "manuscript.tex" in the current directory and gathers it and
       all its components in the "submit_01/" directory:

        $ texdirflatten -f manuscript.tex -o submit_01

CAVEATS

       Please take backups before running this command. No warranties whatsoever provided.

       You may need to run "epstopdf" on EPS files if you are using "pdflatex":

        $ for i in *.eps; do epstopdf $i; done

BUGS

       Bug reports and patches are welcome.
