NAME
       eqedit: command-line image generator for	LaTeX

SYNOPSIS
	eqedit --help

	eqedit {options}

	echo '\LaTeX{} equations are nice' | eqedit --page-color=transparent -o	nice.png; display nice.png

DESCRIPTION
       eqedit is a command-line	utility	to generate an image from LaTeX	input.
       It reads	LaTeX input from stdin,	and writes the output as a file
       specified with the --output option.  The	output format can be any
       format ImageMagick supports.

       It is used by eqe, which	wraps it in a GUI with drag and	drop support.

OPTIONS
       All options can be abbreviated.

   HELP
       --help
	   Shows help about using eqedit.

       --version
	   Displays the	current	version.

   ESSENTIAL
       --output=<file> [eq.png]
	   Sets	the output file. Can be	of any extension that ImageMagick
	   supports (including png, jpeg, eps...).

   FORMATTING
       --magnification=<float> [3.0]
	   Sets	the size of the	output.

       --text-color=<black|white|red|green|blue|cyan|magenta|yellow|transparent>
       [LaTeX default]
	   Sets	the color of the text. Available colors	are those supported by
	   the 'color' LaTeX package, plus 'transparent'.

       --page-color=<...> [LaTeX default]
	   Sets	the color of the background. Available colors are those
	   supported by	the 'color' LaTeX package, plus	'transparent'.

       --font=<8r|avant|bookman|chancery|charter|courier|helvet|mathpazo|mathpple|mathptm|mathptmx|newcent|palatino|pifont|times>
       [LaTeX default]
	   Sets	the font. Available fonts are those known to the LaTeX
	   installation.

       --displaymath=<0|1> [0]
	   Whether to wrap the input in	a 'displaymath'	LaTeX block.

   ADVANCED AND	EXPERIMENTAL
       --width=<int>  [as defined after	magnification]
       --height=<int> [as defined after	magnification]
	   Set the dimensions of the output image. The default is to use the
	   magnification to compute the	size of	the text, and to crop all the
	   blank area around it.

       --latex-template=<file> [template.tt.tex]
	   LaTeX template to use. eqedit searches for the template (by
	   default, template.tt.tex) in	$HOME/.eqe/, /usr/local/share/eqe/,
	   /usr/share/eqe/.  If	it cannot be found, it uses a builtin
	   template.  You may specify just a name (searched for	in the search
	   path), or an	absolute or relative path to the template to be	used.
	   The template	is in a	format described in "perldoc
	   Template::Manual::Syntax" (ie, the Template Toolkit syntax).

       --use-dvipng [off, ie use dvips]
	   Uses	dvipng to convert the dvi to a png. Else, dvips	is used.

       --lumitransparency (experimental)
	   Uses	luminance to compute transparency (alpha). Buggy. Needs	GD.

   LOGGING AND DEBUGGING
       --verbose [no]
	   Displays additional messages	on stderr about	what eqedit is doing.

       --log=<file> [/dev/null]
	   Specifies a file to log messages and	tools output.

       --keep-temp [no]
	   Whether to keep temporary files. Together with --verbose, useful
	   for debugging.
