Building tex output from the problem templatesThere are different situations in which the problem templates are run through the TeX typesetting program to produce typeset mathematics: when downloading a postscript or PDF version of the problem set; and when viewing a "GIF" version of an individual problem where the typeset output has been converted to a picture format using the perl program Latex2HTML.
In each case it is necessary to specify some global parameters which tell the TeX program how to process the individual problems. These header and footer files are combined with the output from processing the problem templates to produce the complete typeset printout of the set, or the "GIF" enhanced version of the individual problem. The files are found in the $templatesDirectory and are processed in the order given. They can be customized to change the appearance and the boler plate contents of the typeset problem sets.
To obtain the complete typeset output of the problem set using downloadPS.pl the following files are used:
To obtain typeset output on a single problem using Latex2HTML the following files are used:
