Python codec for generating international characters in Latex syntax

Project description

This package installs codecs that allow to convert byte strings (meaning standard Python 2 strings) into an equivalent that has all special characters expressed as Latex commands.


>>> import latexcodec
>>> print u"Peter Tr\xf6ger".encode("latex")
>>> print u"Peter Tr\xf6ger".encode("latex_bracket")
Peter Tr\"oger

The conversion table is generated from the Latex utf-8 inputenc package, which should make sure that all relevant characters are covered.

The functionality of this package somehow is a hack, since LaTex encoding is not really a codec.

The future plan is to implement this alternatively as invalid character error handler, or as transformation codec starting from Python 3.3.

0.2 (2012-09-28):

  • Adding additional codec with brackets around special characters

0.1 (2011-05-26):

  • Initial release
