## Default S3 method:
compileLaTeX(filename, path=NULL, format=c("pdf", "dvi"), clean=FALSE, quiet=TRUE,
  texinputs=NULL, ..., outPath=".", verbose=FALSE)

Arguments

filename, path

The filename and (optional) path of the LaTeX document to be compiled. Only *.tex and *.ltx filename extensions are allowed.

format

A character string specifying the output format.

clean, quiet, texinputs

Additional arguments passed to texi2dvi.

...

Not used.

outPath

The output and working directory.

verbose

See Verbose.

Value

Returns the pathname of the generated (PDF or DVI) document.

Supported filename extensions

Internally texi2dvi is used, which in turn uses Sys.which("texi2dvi") if available. Most known implementation of the latter will only recognize LaTeX documents with filename extensions *.tex and *.ltx (case sensitive). (Any other filenames will be compiled with 'texinfo', which is not a LaTeX compiler.)
