Usage

encoded_text_to_latex(x,
                      encoding = c("latin1", "latin2", "latin9",
                                   "UTF-8", "utf8"))

Arguments

x

a character vector.

encoding

the encoding to be assumed. "latin9" is officially ISO-8859-15 or Latin-9, but known as latin9 to LaTeX's inputenc package.

Details

Non-ASCII characters in x are replaced by an appropriate LaTeX escape sequence, or ? if there is no appropriate sequence.

Even if there is an appropriate sequence, it may not be supported by the font in use. Hyphen is mapped to \-.

Value

A character vector of the same length as x.
