I'm working on a program which should output the results of its computations in form of a typesetted document (ideally pdf from *pdflatex*).
I'm trying to perfrom the final presentation part via `view` function, however, that doesn't seem to be the most convenient way (since `view` is aimed at typesetting **LaTeX** formulas of elements of a list). A lot of *hidden code* (headers, turned on math modes etc.) are really unpleasent to get around.
I'm pondering about generating an explicit `.tex` source code file. How can I call TeX compiler from Sage? I.e. how to compile it automatically in an own program, similarly as `view` does it?)
ThanX in advance!

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9165/compile-tex-from-sage/?comment=19372#post-id-19372I don't see why you can't use SageTeX, then. Presumably you could write a Sage file to do the heavy lifting, then do 'load myfile.sage' in SageTeX and use the new commands everywhere. People do this in R all the time, for instance, with Sweave/knitr.Fri, 20 Jul 2012 10:57:41 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9165/compile-tex-from-sage/?comment=19372#post-id-19372Comment by Mathemage for <p>Hola!</p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9165/compile-tex-from-sage/?comment=19368#post-id-19368Hmm, that sounds interesting - you mean like splitting up computational and presentation part and make a *template* in (Sage)TeX with desired format? I'm just a little bit afraid if SageTeX is powerful enough. Specifically can I typeset sth conditionally (like `if` command)? Some properties of the function (*even, constant, periodic*...) would be nice to omit when they're N/A to show...Fri, 20 Jul 2012 23:36:59 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9165/compile-tex-from-sage/?comment=19368#post-id-19368Comment by kcrisman for <p>Hola!</p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9165/compile-tex-from-sage/?comment=19379#post-id-19379Why not do it the other way around, using SageTeX? Then you could call Sage code as needed, but do all the real stuff in LaTeX. I'm not quite sure if this would help, as you are a little vague about the precise steps youFri, 20 Jul 2012 04:37:56 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9165/compile-tex-from-sage/?comment=19379#post-id-19379Comment by kcrisman for <p>Hola!</p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9165/compile-tex-from-sage/?comment=19363#post-id-19363Well, TeX *is* a programming language, and SageTeX is just a superset thereof. Again, this is kind of vague.Mon, 23 Jul 2012 04:06:44 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9165/compile-tex-from-sage/?comment=19363#post-id-19363Comment by Mathemage for <p>Hola!</p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9165/compile-tex-from-sage/?comment=19373#post-id-19373Yes, sth exactly like that. My task is to do some basic investigations about a given real-valued function (stationary/inflection points, intervals of monotonicity, asymptotes...) a and give out a nice dvi/pdf. Because of computational part it should stay in Sage/python code. Maybe the SageTeX is the solution (I haven't got into its depts yet) - some way to compile SageTeX's source file from Sage's command line (so that I could call it in my program)?Fri, 20 Jul 2012 08:31:04 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9165/compile-tex-from-sage/?comment=19373#post-id-19373Comment by Mathemage for <p>Hola!</p>

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9165/compile-tex-from-sage/?comment=19376#post-id-19376I know what you mean & I did think about this way for quite a long time. But the truth is this my college project - which should be own Sage/Python library, not TeX project. Or maybe I just misunderstood the idea around SageTeX & it can processed via Python/Sage - is it somehow *"doable"*?Fri, 20 Jul 2012 07:50:57 -0500http://ask.sagemath.org/question/9165/compile-tex-from-sage/?comment=19376#post-id-19376Comment by kcrisman for <p>Hola!</p>
