Collect files related to a LaTeX job in a single directory.
The Perl script parses a LaTeX file recursively, scanning all child
files, and collects details of any included and other data files. These
component files, are then all put into a single directory (thus
“flattening” the document’s directory tree).
The author is Cengiz Gunay.
This looks like something that one would call as part of the converter
and how could I do it?
There is a complication, namely, that everything is going to happen here
in LyX's temporary directory. So what I think will happen is that
texdirflatten will create its directory at e.g.
and now the question is: How do we export this? i.e., copy it to the
original file location? Answer: We define a "copier", and tell it to
copy this directory to the original document directory. Have a look at
the ext_copy.py copier that is used with the LaTeX-->HTML converters.
You may be able to use that, or at least to adapt it to your purposes.
Copiers, etc, are all discussed in the Customization manual.
