19:54 LlamaRider Hi. Is there a pure LaTeX version of the P6 book available somewhere? Or is there an easy way to generate it from the POD?
19:55 moritz LlamaRider: the reaon is that writing source code examples inside latex is a pain
19:55 moritz erm
19:55 moritz LlamaRider: 'make' creates the .tex first, then the PDF from the tex
19:56 * moritz misread the question at first, sorry
19:56 LlamaRider So it's somewhat obvious to get the .tex , good. Just wanted to check prior to trying
19:56 moritz it's in build/UsingPerl6.*.tex
19:57 moritz where the value of * depends on the paper format (a4, letter, custom)
19:57 LlamaRider To state my intentions - I'm a co-dev of a TeX to anything-XML converter and wanted to give the book a spin with our software. You probably have your own HTML and/or eBook workflow, but it would be cool if ours works as well.
19:58 LlamaRider thanks; that should suffice to get me going
19:58 moritz well, 'make html' creates a plain HTML file, but it's pretty crude
20:01 LlamaRider ah, it goes the POD->HTML route, I see. That should be worse than what you can get out of TeX I guess, depends how good the CPAN module is.
20:11 LlamaRider ok, I've done some first tests; I should pop back online in a week or two if all goes well and give you some nice examples of an HTML and possibly ePub version. Will take a bit of additional enhancements to make it pretty.
