Assembling reports from papers

April 8, 2007 Documentation No comments

New Python/SCons functions defined in rsf/book.py together with LaTeX georeport class and LaTeX2HTML customization scripts defined in SEGTeX can now assemble reports from individual papers. See, for example, incomplete Madagascar documentation collected in a single PDF file or a web page. The script for generating these documents is book/rsf/SConstruct. Other examples are referenced on the redesigned wiki page for Reproducible Documents.

To try this feature:

1. Make sure you have the figures properly locked.

2.

cd $RSFSRC/book/YOUR_FAVORITE_BOOK  and run scons book.tex  then scons pdf  or scons read  to generate a PDF file and read it or scons www  to generate a web page installed in$RSFDOC.

You can also generate all books at once by running

scons www


in \$RSFSRC/book. Any feedback is appreciated.
