I am currently writing a LaTeX document in Spanish that relies heavily on sageTeX for computations. The rules for writing numbers in Spanish are a little different from English ones. For example, we are prohibited from using commas to separate every 1000 factor, instead using a small space, only if the number is longer than four digits; otherwise, no sign should be used. On the other hand, the decimal point is actually a decimal comma. For example,
- 1,000,000.25 should be written as 1 000 000,25
- 123,456,789.123456789 should be written as 123 456 789,123 456 789
- 4,000 should be written as 4000
Using sageTeX, SageMath's `latex` command, and LaTeX babel package, it is easy to replace the decimal point with a decimal comma. It is also easy to eliminate the commas for every 1000 factor. However, I haven't been able to put a small space instead.
I could use the `siunitx` LaTeX package, which has a command, `\num`, that does exactly this processing. However, it doesn't work with sageTeX's `\sage` command or any of it's environments. The only solution I can find is to apply the `\num` command directly to every number generated by SageMath via the `latex` command.
My problem is: I don't know how to do this, specially in cases where numbers are entries of a matrix, or the coefficients of a polynomial. So, **how could I apply the `\num` command to every number independently using the `latex` command?**
Thanks in advance for your answers! Any alternative approach is also welcomed.dsejasSat, 29 Jun 2019 23:08:29 -0500https://ask.sagemath.org/question/47018/
