Building the guide
To build the guide, first you need to install the library.
Installing from Hackage
Using cabal-install you can install the library directly from Hackage.
$ cabal install hatex-guide
The installed package includes a small library which exports a function
writeGuide. This function has a parameter indicating the format
of the output. For example,
writeGuide LaTeX will write the output in
the current directory in LaTeX format. Read the package documentation

Once the package is installed, run GHCi and run the following session.
$ import Text.LaTeX.Guide $ writeGuide LaTeX
Installing HEAD version
Run the following commands to download and install the HEAD version. Requires git and cabal.
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:Daniel-Diaz/hatex-guide.git $ cd hatex-guide $ cabal install
Once installed, import
Text.LaTeX.Guide and use
writeGuide to build the actual guide.
