tex2rmd(infile)

Arguments

Full path to the input Latex file.

Details

The general workflow to convert a Latex document into Markdown, and eventually Word, is as follows:

  1. Compile the latex document, using pdftex or whatever, so that the .aux and .bbl files are generated.

  2. Run tex3rmd specifying the file containing the raw Latex code as the input. The associated .aux and .bbl files must be in the same directory. This will generate a markdown document of the same root name but with .Rmd extension.

  3. Compile the .Rmd file. In RStudio, open it and hit <ctrl>-<shift>-K.

Value

The markdown code is written to a file named <root>.Rmd, where inFile is <root>.tex. The markdown code in the form of a vector, one line per element, is invisably returned.
