NAME
       latex2slides - a tool to create a slide presentation from a LaTeX
       source

SYNOPSIS
       latex2slides [OPTION] [FILE]

DESCRIPTION
       latex2slides is a simple graphical program that produces a set of
       HTML/JPEG slides from a LaTeX (or TeX) source FILE. The program first
       produces a multipage postscript, using latex (or tex ) and dvips.  Each
       postscript page is converted to a JPEG image using ImageMagick's
       convert.  The program then makes one HTML page for each JPEG (or
       slide), and an index.html page. As a result, each slide in your slide
       presentation corresponds to one of the postscript pages you would
       obtain running latex on the LaTeX source.  Alternatively, the source
       can be a multipage postscript, DVI or PDF FILE, and the image format
       for the slides can be set to PNG.
