SYNOPSIS

l2a [ -a ] [ -h ] [ -n ] [ -v ]

DESCRIPTION

L2a is a filter to ‘‘detexify’’ texts. That is, it attempts to remove LaTeX markup commands, leaving only the body of text. It is intended to be used when journal editors request plain ASCII text for typesetting, or when you want to post a plain version of a LaTeX document on an electronic conference system.

L2a is a filter. Its default operation is to read from standard input (the keyboard) and write on standard output (the terminal).

OPTIONS

-a Write out information about l2a.
-h Write out a brief summary of options.
-n Generate norwegian headings.
-v Display version number.

DIAGNOSTICS

Unrecognized markup commands generate an error message on the screen. There is no return code.
