SYNOPSIS
       latex [first-line]

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The complete  documen-
       tation  for this version of TeX can be found in the info file or manual
       Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       The LaTeX language is described in the book LaTeX - A Document Prepara-
       tion  System.   LaTeX is a TeX macro package, not a modification to the
       TeX source program, so all the capabilities  described  in  tex(1)  are
       present.

       The  LaTeX macros encourage writers to think about the content of their
       documents, rather than the form.  The ideal, very difficult to realize,
       is  to have no formatting commands (like ``switch to italic'' or ``skip
       2 picas'') in the document at all; instead, everything is done by  spe-
       cific markup instructions: ``emphasize'', ``start a section''.

       The  primary source of documentation for LaTeX is the LaTeX manual ref-
       erenced below, and the local  guide  in  the  file  local-guide.tex  or
       local.tex or some such.

       pdflatex, lualatex, and xelatex, are LaTeX formats based on the respec-
       tive engines.  All output PDF by default.
       lambed is the Aleph-based LaTeX format (DVI output).

       On some systems latex209 and slitex  are  available  for  compatibility
       with older versions of LaTeX.  These should not be used for new texts.
