TeX::AutoTeX::HyperTeX - filter for augmenting TeX source with hypertex facilities


The function copy_source_from_hyper() is filtering TeX source files through an aggregation of a large number of regular expressions imported from the original AutoTeX code. See HISTORY below.

 AutoTeX is an automatic TeX processing system designed to
 process TeX/LaTeX/AMSTeX/etc source code of papers submitted
 to the (nee e-print archive. The
 portable part of this code has been extracted and is made
 available in the hope that it will be useful to other projects
 and that the input of others will benefit

 Code developed and contributed to by Tanmoy Bhattacharya, Rob
 Hartill, Mark Doyle, Thorsten Schwander, and Simeon Warner.
 Refactored to separate generic code from specific code
 by Stephen Marsh, Michael Fromerth, and Simeon Warner 2005/2006.

Routine to create modified TeX source to automatically add hypertex facilities.

Input parameters:

$type is the file type of $file as determined by TeX::AutoTeX::File
$file is the TeX file name to be edited
$log is an TeX::AutoTeX::Log object for logging
$local_hyper_transform either undef or an instance of a Filter class with a filter() method for local custom parsing to be executed line by line after the standard hypertex transformations.

Returns ($this_type, $dont_hypertex, $try_amsplain)


Is called by the subroutine above. Essentially functions as a macro, prints an appropriate message and always returns 1, which is then used to set $dont_hypertex


The parsing is somewhat inefficient and easily fooled.
