Description

The texcaller binary is a simple command line tool around the texcaller_convert() library function.

It is an alternative, simpler command line interface for TeX to be used in shell scripts.

It reads the source document from standard input and writes the result document to standard output. No temporary files are left behind. Information and error messages are reported to standard error. The exit code is 0 on success and 1 on failure.
