       latex2rtf - Convert a LaTeX file to an RTF file


       latex2rtf [-hlpFSVW] [ -d# ] [ -D# ] [ -M# ]  [ -se#] [ -sf#] [ -t# ] [ -Z# ] [ -a auxfile
       ] [ -b bblfile ] [ -C codepage ]  [ -i language ] [ -o outputfile ] [ -P /path/to/cfg ]  [
       -T /path/to/tmp ] [ inputfile ]


       The latex2rtf command converts a LaTeX file into RTF text format. The text and much of the
       formatting information is translated to RTF.


       -a auxfile
              Used to specify a particular cross-referencing file.  When this option is  omitted,
              the auxfile is assumed to be the same as inputfile with the .tex suffix replaced by

       -b bblfile
              Used to specify a particular bibliography file When this  option  is  omitted,  the
              bblfile  is  assumed  to  be the same as inputfile with the .tex suffix replaced by

       -C codepage
              used to specify the character set (code page) used in the LaTeX document  for  non-
              ansi  characters.   codepage may be one of the following: ansinew, applemac, cp437,
              cp437de, cp850, cp852, cp855,  cp865,  cp866,  decmulti,  cp1250,  cp1252,  koi8-r,
              koi8-u,  latin1, latin2, latin3, latin4, latin5, latin9, maccyr, macukr, next, raw,
              raw437, raw852, raw1250, raw1251, and raw1253.  The  default  behavior  is  to  use
              ansinew  (same as cp1252).  For convenience, just the numbers 437, 437de, 850, 852,
              855, 866, 1250 or 1252 may be specified.

              The raw character set encoding prevents any 8-bit character translation.   The  RTF
              file  is  marked  to  use the same encoding as the default encoding for the program
              interpreting the RTF file.  This is particularly useful  when  translating  a  file
              written  in  a  language  (e.g.,  czech) that maps poorly into the ansinew (western
              european) character set.

       -d#    Write extra debugging output to stderr.  Higher numbers cause more debugging output
              and  range  from  0  (only  errors) to 6 (absurdly many messages). The default is 1
              (Warnings and Errors only).

       -D dots_per_inch
              Used to specify the number of dots per inch in  equations  that  are  converted  to
              bitmaps and for graphics that must be converted.  Default is 300 dpi.

       -E#    where  #  selects  the  type  of  figure  handling  desired.   RTF does not support
              insertion of PS, PDF, or EPS file types.  These figures  must  be  converted  to  a
              bitmap format and then inserted.  One trick is to insert the filenames into the RTF
              file and then in post-processing, insert the file.   These  options  can  be  added
              -E3 insert all figures (DEFAULT)
              -E0 no figures in the RTF
              -E1 insert figures having RTF-supported formats
              -E2 convert and insert unsupported figure formats
              -E4 insert only filenames for supported file formats
              -E8 insert only filenames for unsupported file formats

       -f use fields
              -f0  do  not use fields in RTF.  This is handy when primitive RTF editors are being
              used to view the RTF output.
              -f1 use fields for equations but not \ref and \cite.
              -f2 use fields for \ref and \cite but not equations.
              -f3 use fields when possible.  This is the default and is most useful when the  RTF
              file  is being exported to be used in Word.  This retains the most information from
              the original LaTeX file.

       -F     use LaTeX to create bitmaps for all figures.  This may help when  figures  are  not
              translated properly.

       -h     Print a short usage note

       -i language
              used to set the idiom or language used in the LaTeX document language may be one of
              the following afrikaans, bahasa, basque, brazil, breton, catalan, croatian,  czech,
              danish,  dutch,  english,  esperanto,  estonian, finnish, french, galician, german,
              icelandic,  irish,italian,  latin,  lsorbian,  magyar,  norsk,   nynorsk,   polish,
              portuges,  romanian,  russian,  samin, scottish, serbian, slovak, slovene, spanish,
              swedish, turkish, usorbian, welsh.  The default is english.

       -l     Assume  LaTeX  source  uses  ISO  8859-1  (Latin-1)  special  characters   (default

       -o outputfile
              Redirect output to outputfile Unless an outputfile is specified with the -o option,
              the resulting RTF is produced in a file with .tex replaced by .rtf.

       -M#    where # selects the type of equation conversion.
              -M1 displayed equations to RTF
              -M2 inline equations to RTF
              -M4 displayed equations to bitmap
              -M8 inline equations to bitmap
              -M16 insert Word comment field containing the raw LaTeX equation
              -M32 insert raw LaTeX equation delimited by $...$ and \[...\]
              -M64 displayed equations to EPS files with filenames in RTF
              -M128 inline equations to EPS files with filenames in RTF

       These options may be added together to get different results
              -M0 no equations fields in the RTF.
              -M3 converts both inline and displayed equations to RTF (DEFAULT).
              -M12 converts inline and displayed equations to bitmaps.
              -M192 converts inline and displayed equations to eps files and  inserts  a  tag  in
              Bitmap conversion requires a working latex2png script.  Producing bitmaps is slow.

       -p     Escape  printed parentheses in mathematical formulas, as some versions of Word (e.g
              Word  2000)  have  deep  psychological  problems  with  EQ  fields   using   quoted
              parentheses.  If Word displays some formulas with parentheses as 'Error!', try this
              option.  See also the -S option.

       -P /path/to/cfg
              used to specify the directory that contains the @code{.cfg} files

       -se#   selects the scale for equation conversion, where # is  the  scale  factor  (default

       -sf#   selects  the  scale  for  figure  conversion,  where # is the scale factor (default

       -S     Use semicolons to separate arguments in  RTF  fields.   This  is  needed  when  the
              machine  opening  the  RTF  file has a version of Word that uses commas for decimal
              points.  This also can fix displaying some formulas as 'Error!'  You may also  need
              to try the -p option.

       -t#    selects the type of table conversion.
              -t1 convert tables to RTF (default)
              -t2 convert tables to bitmaps

       -T /path/to/tmp
              used to specify the folder where to put temporary files.

       -V     Prints version on standard output and exits.

       -W     Emit  warnings  directly  in  RTF  file.  Handy for catching things that do not get
              translated correctly.

       -Z#    Add # close braces to end of RTF file.  (Handy when file is not converted correctly
              and will not open in another word processor.)


       The  configuration  files are searched first in any directory specified by -P, then in the
       location specified by the environment variable RTFPATH, and finally in the location CFGDIR
       specified  when  latex2rtf  was  compiled.   If the configuration files are not found then
       latex2rtf aborts.  The configuration  files  allow  additional  fonts  to  be  recognized,
       additional simple commands to be translation, and additional commands to be ignored.


       The  input  file  must  be  a  valid  LaTeX  file. Use LaTeX to find and fix errors before
       converting with latex2rtf.

       The configuration files direct.cfg and fonts.cfg are in the correct  directory.   You  may
       have to change fonts.cfg or direct.cfg to suit your needs.


       Some might consider RTF to be a bug.

       Some environments are currently ignored.

       Translation without a LaTeX generated .aux file is poor.


       Report  bugs  to to the bug tracking system at
       Only report bugs for the latest version of latex2rtf that is available.   Please  identify
       your operating system.

       If  the program produces wrong output or does not work for you, INCLUDE A SHORT LATEX FILE
       that demonstrates the problem.  The shorter the LaTeX file, the quicker your bug will  get
       addressed.   Bug reports with non-existent LaTeX files are not welcomed by the developers.
       Do not bother to send RTF files, since these are usually unhelpful.
