I would like to share a way I have found to have TeXShop
typeset and display automatically a TeX file produced
by Mathematica. I have been using it to generate statistical
reports.
I think it only works in Tiger.
Here it is:
First place the following AppleScript with name TeXShopTypeset.scpt
into ~/Library/Mathematica/Applications :
on run argomento
tell application "Finder"
set myFile to (get POSIX file (item 1 of argomento) as alias) as
reference
end tell
tell application "TeXShop"
open myFile
typeset document (name of myFile)
end tell
end run
Then define the following function in Mathematica:
TeXShopTypeset[fileNameAndPath_String] :=
Display["!osascript \
~/Library/Mathematica/Applications/TeXShopTypeset.scpt " <>
fileNameAndPath,
"", "TEXT"]
Suppose now that you have generated a TeX file in Mathematica,
with path
myFile = "~/Desktop/myTeXfile.tex"
To have it automatically typeset from within Mathematica simply call
TeXShopTypeset[myFile]
I wonder if there is a way to do the same that does not need
an AppleScript.
Good luck,
