Examples :

Usage examples:

from latex import LatexDocument
ltxdoc = LatexDocument(latexstr)
print ltxdoc.packages
print ltxdoc.preamble

ltxdoc2 = LatexDocument(latexstr2)
ltxdoc3 = ltxdoc + ltxdoc2

# If some files have to be inclued
ltxdoc3.add_file("/home/cyberj/lolcat_1182.png", "lolcat.png")

f = open("/home/cyberj/motivational_4242.png", "rb")
ltxdoc3.add_file(f, "motivational.png")

pdf = ltxdoc3.as_pdf()
