html to latex and vice-versa

Post date: Jun 22, 2009 12:42:11 PM

I used to use latex2html to move my notes and papers written in LaTeX to my webpage (latex2html is available through porticus).But I also like from time to time to grab some peace of the web to embed it in my LaTeX notes. To do it, I use html2latex.

My favorites commands:

LaTeX -> HTML:

latex2html -split 0 -nonavigation -noinfo -image_type gif

HTML -> LaTeX:


Rqs about html2latex:

My Perl package was not complete, I had to install:

to do so, I type: "perl -MCPAN -e shell"

then: install HTML::Tree

and: install XML::Simple

I had to install a bunch of stuff on the fly, all the dependencies that were missing.

Last but not least, I don't know why but this was not enough, I had the following error message when I first tried to run html2latex:

Can't locate HTML/ in @INC (@INC contains: /Library/Perl/Updates/5.8.8 /System/Library/Perl/5.8.8/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/5.8.8 /Library/Perl/5.8.8/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Library/Perl/5.8.8 /Library/Perl /Network/Library/Perl/5.8.8/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Network/Library/Perl/5.8.8 /Network/Library/Perl /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.8.8/darwin-thread-multi-2level /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.8.8 /Library/Perl/5.8.6 /Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Library/Perl/5.8.1 .) at HTML/ line 32.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at HTML/ line 32.

Compilation failed in require at ./html2latex line 81.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./html2latex line 81.

So to fix it, I modify the /Library/Perl/5.8.8/AppendToPath file, adding the line:


and then I got it ok.
