19.4.5 latex2html Customization Variables

This table lists the customization variables which can be used when latex2html is being used to convert @math, @displaymath, @latex and @tex sections for HTML. These customization variables are relevant only if HTML_MATH is set to ‘l2h’.

To actually convert @tex sections, --iftex should be used, and to actually convert @latex sections, --iflatex should be used.


If set, the intermediate files generated in relation with latex2html are removed; default true.


If set, the given file is used as latex2html’s init file; default unset.


The HTML version used in the latex2html call; default unset.


The program invoked as latex2html; default is latex2html.


If set to a true value, the actual call to latex2html is skipped; previously generated content is reused instead. If set to 0, the cache is not used at all. If set to ‘undef’, the cache is used for as many TeX fragments as possible and for any remaining the command is run. The default is ‘undef’.


Set the directory used for temporary files. None of the file name components in this directory name may start with ‘.’; otherwise, latex2html will fail (because of dvips). The default is the empty string, which means the current directory.
