Description

as_latex() converts an R Object (currently Tatoo_tables and data.frames) to latex code.

save_pdf() is a wrapper around as_latex() for directly saving an R object to ‘.pdf’.

view_pdf() is another wrapper for directly viewing an R Object's pdf representation on a pdf viewer (powered by open_file()).
