NAME
       l2a - a LaTeX detergent

SYNOPSIS
       l2a [ -a	] [ -h ] [ -n ]	[ -v ]

DESCRIPTION
       L2a  is a filter	to ``detexify''	texts.	That is, it attempts to	remove
       LaTeX markup commands, leaving only the body of text.  It  is  intended
       to  be  used when journal editors request plain ASCII text for typeset-
       ting, or	when you want to post a	plain version of a LaTeX  document  on
       an electronic conference	system.

       L2a  is a filter.  Its default operation	is to read from	standard input
       (the keyboard) and write	on standard output (the	terminal).

OPTIONS
       -a     Write out	information about l2a.

       -h     Write out	a brief	summary	of options.

       -n     Generate norwegian headings.

       -v     Display version number.

DIAGNOSTICS
       Unrecognized markup commands generate an	error message on  the  screen.
       There is	no return code.
