Convert MediaWiki text to LaTeX

Latest on Hackage:7.33

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow to host generated Haddocks.

mediawiki2latex converts MediaWiki markup to LaTeX, PDF, EPUB and ODT. So it provides and export from MediaWiki to LaTeX. It works with any project running MediaWiki, especially Wikipedia and Wikibooks. Please note, that the program requieres certain run time dependencies. Those cannot be expressed in cabal and thus won't be installed when installing from hackage. So we strongly recommend to use the binaries included in debian as well as ubuntu or to use the binary version for windows provided on the sourcefogre project page.
