Converting to Text

In the first article, you were introduced to a program called DeTeX. DeTeX is a filter that removes LaTeX/TeX control sequences from its input. You use DeTeX to extract your text from a LaTeX document. DeTex has several options so be sure to read its man page.

Another option is to convert the document to a single HTML file, using latex2html. Then, open the HTML file in a web browser and save it as text.
