NAME

       AMC-prepare - prepares working documents from LaTeX source file

SYNOPSIS

       auto-multiple-choice prepare --mode s --prefix project-dir mcq-source-file

       auto-multiple-choice prepare --mode b --data project-data-dir mcq-source-file

DESCRIPTION

       The AMC-prepare.pl command extracts working documents from the source file describing the
       multiple choice questionnaire. Information to be extracted depends on the --mode argument
       value. In any mode, the source filename must be given as an argument.

       ·   with "--mode s", AMC-prepare.pl makes the subject file (answer sheet to be printed and
           given to the students), the correction (single corrected answer sheet) and the
           positions file (file containing information about the positions of the boxes on the
           pages). The following arguments can be used:

           --out-sujet subject.pdf
               sets the subject file to build.

           --out-corrige corrected.pdf
               sets the correction to build.

           --out-calage calage.xy
               sets the positions file to build.

           --prefix directory
               this directory is only necessary if one or more of the three previous options are
               not used: default values are then directory/sujet.pdf, directory/corrige.pdf and
               directory/calage.xy.

       ·   with "--mode b", AMC-prepare.pl extracts scoring data from the source file. In this
           mode, the --data argument must be used (see below).

       The following optional arguments can be used in any mode:

       --with latex-engine
           gives the LaTeX engine (command) to be used.  latex-engine can be pdflatex or xelatex
           for exemple.

       --filter filter
           sets the filter name to transform the MCQ source file into a LaTeX file. Native
           filters are latex (no change at all) and plain (source is an AMC-TXT file).

       --filtered-source mcq-latex-file
           gives the LaTeX file to make from the source file using specified filter. If omitted,
           a filename derived from mcq-source-file adding _filtered.tex is used.

       --n-copies n
           sets the number of copies to produce, overriding the number given in the LaTeX source
           file (first argument of the \onecopy command).

       --debug file.log
           gives a file to fill with debugging information.

       --data project-data-dir
           sets the directory where the project's SQLite data files are.
