       hevea - A fast LaTeX to HTML translator


       hevea [options] <texfile>


       This  manual  page  documents briefly the hevea command.  This manual page was written for
       the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program  does  not  have  a  manual

       Using hevea it is possible to translate large documents written in LaTeX, such as manuals,
       books, etc., very quickly into HTML. All documents are translated as one single HTML file.
       The output file can be cut into smaller files, using the companion program hacha.

       The  Debian version of HeVeA differs from the original HeVeA distribution in that pictures
       are by default generated in the png format instead of gif. The original  behavior  can  be
       regained by feeding the following option to hevea:


       and then invoke imagen with the -gif option.


   General Options
              Show hevea version and exit.

       -v     Verbose flag, can be repeated to increase verbosity.

       -dv    Add  border  around  some of the block-level elements issued. Specifically, all DIV
              and P are bordered, while the structure of displayed material is also shown.

       -s     Suppress warnings.

       -I dirname
              Add dirname to the search path.

       -o name
              Make name the output basename. However, if  name  is  base.html,  then  the  output
              basename is base.

       -e filename
              Prevent  hevea  from loading any file whose name is filename. Note that this option
              applies to all files, including hevea.hva and base style files.

       -fix   Iterate HeVeA until  a  fixpoint  is  found.  Additionally,  images  get  generated

       -O     Optimize HTML by calling esponja.

       -exec prog
              Execute file prog and read the output. The file prog must have execution permission
              and is searched by following the searching rules of hevea.

              Deprecated by babel support. This option issues a warning message.

       -help  Print version number and a short help message.

   Options controlling the generation of HTML code
              Render symbols by using entities. This is the default.

              Render symbols by English text.

              Enable the output of some infrequent entities. Use this option to  target  browsers
              with wide entities support.

              Produces MathML output for equations, very experimental.

              Be  strict  in interpreting HTMLdefinition. In particular, this option disable size
              and color changes inside <PRE>... </PRE>, which are otherwise performed.

   Options for alternative output formats
       -text  Output plain text. Output file extension is .txt.

       -info  Output info format. Output file extension is .info.

       -w width
              Set the line width for text or info output, defaults to 72.


       hacha(1), imagen(1), esponja(1).

       The HeVeA documentation can be found  on the HeVeA home page    On   a   Debian   system   it   can   also   be   accessed   at
       /usr/share/doc/hevea-doc/html,  provided the package hevea-doc (from the non-free section)
       is installed.
