Description

This function personalizes a 'LaTeX' document with data from a table, generating a new file for each row which is saved on the outputDirectory.

Usage

1
2
GenerateHomework(x, Table, CommandNames, ColumnNames, outputDirectory,
  outputBaseName)

Arguments

x

A character vector, each element represents one line of the latex document

Table

Data frame from which to extract the information

CommandNames

Character vector with the same length as columnNames

ColumnNames

Character vector with the names of the columns to be used

outputDirectory

The directory in which the output will be placed

outputBaseName

The starting name for the output files

The files will look like

<outputDirectory>/<outputBaseName>_00<number>.tex

Where the number of zeros is the minimum number of zeros required to have a different version number for each file. (i.e., if there is only 45 files, it is 01-45; but with 132 files, it would be 001-132)

Details

The command names should be 'LaTeX' commands that are being defined through

\newcommand{\<CommandNames[i]>}{<previous definition>}

The definition of these commands will be changed to be

\newcommand{\<CommandNames[i]>}{<Table[ColumnNames[i]][file #]>}

And it will output one file for each command.

The intent of this function was to populate information into a generic homework to personalize it for every student using 'LaTeX'. (It actually generalizes to maybe other problems).

Value

Character vector with the file names of the output.
