# NAME

ltpretty - Use LaTeX::Table from within your text editor.

# SYNOPSIS

  ltpretty < lazytable

# DESCRIPTION

This program takes a lazy formatted LaTeX table from STDIN (typically piped from Vim or emacs) and outputs a completely formatted table.

# LAZY FORMAT

The first line must contain the LaTeX::Table options (separated by semicolons ;) in the format optionname=value. The second line must contain the header, the following lines the data. Columns are separated by &. Trailing empty lines are ignored, other empty lines generate horizontal rules (as in LaTeX::Table).

# EXAMPLE

   theme=Meyrin;label=test;position=htb
Item:2c & Price
Gnat& per gram& 13.65
& each& 0.01

Gnu& stuffed& 92.59
Emu& stuffed& 33.33
Armadillo& frozen& 8.99

# VIM

1. Select the text in VISUAL LINE mode (shift+v).
2. Type !ltpretty

# EMACS

1. Select the text
2. Press alt+|
3. Now "Shell command on region" should appear. Type ltpretty

# OUTPUT

   % theme=Meyrin;label=test;position=htb
% Item:2c & Price
% Gnat& per gram& 13.65
% & each& 0.01
%
% Gnu& stuffed& 92.59
% Emu& stuffed& 33.33
% Armadillo& frozen& 8.99

\begin{table}[htb]
\centering
\begin{tabular}{llr}
\toprule
\multicolumn{2}{c}{Item} & Price \\
\midrule
Gnat      & per gram & 13.65 \\
& each     & 0.01  \\
\midrule
Gnu       & stuffed  & 92.59 \\
Emu       & stuffed  & 33.33 \\
Armadillo & frozen   & 8.99  \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabular}
\label{test}
\end{table}

# CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

ltpretty does not support configuration files or environment variables.

LaTeX::Table

# BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

Our lazy format does not support multi-line headers. Just add the other header lines afterwards. More importantly, it currently does not support non-scalar LaTeX::Table options like for example columns_like_header. A future version may add this functionality.
