NAME
       texdirflatten - Collects all components of a (La)TeX file in a single
       output directory -- i.e., flattens its hierarchy.

SYNOPSIS
       texdirflatten [-1|--onetex] [-f|--file input.tex] [-o outputdir]
                  [--imgexts .ext1,.ext2,...] [--debug] [-V|--version]
       [-?|--help]

DESCRIPTION
       This Perl script parses a LaTeX file recursively, scanning all child
       files, and collects details of any included and other data files, such
       as graphics and BiBTeX bibliography files. These component files, are
       then all put into a single directory (thus "flattening" the document's
       directory tree). This is useful in distributing manuscripts to
       collaborators or in submitting to journals.

OPTIONS
       --file, -f input.tex
           Specifies input (La)TeX file.

       --onetex, -1
           If specified, produces a single TeX file by expanding all \input
           and \include commands in place.

       --output, -o outputdir
           Directory to collect all files. texdirflatten will copy each source
           file, graphics and bibliography file to this directory. It will be
           created if it is unexistent. If unspecified, it defaults to
           "flat/".

       --imgexts .ext1,.ext2[,...]
           Prepends to the prioritized list of image extensions to search when
           trying to find the image to copy to output folder. The first file
           with the extension found will be copied and search stopped. Default
           order is "", ".eps", ".pdf", ".pstex" (note that it includes files
           with no extension). If using pdflatex, one may want to add PDF
           before EPS with "--imgexts .pdf". Don't forget the dot before the
           extension!

       --debug
           Enables copious amounts of debugging output - useful if something
           is going wrong.

       --version, -V
           Displays the current version number and the usage and exits.

       --help, -?
           Show this manual page.

EXAMPLES
       The following example scans "manuscript.tex" in the current directory
       and gathers it and all its components in the "submit_01/" directory:

        $ texdirflatten -f manuscript.tex -o submit_01

CAVEATS
       Please take backups before running this command. No warranties
       whatsoever provided.

       You may need to run "epstopdf" on EPS files if you are using
       "pdflatex":

        $ for i in *.eps; do epstopdf $i; done

BUGS
       Bug reports and patches are welcome.
