I did this Portfile for hevea, a latex to html translator, robust and powerful.

The web site description: HEVEA is a quite complete and fast LATEX to HTML translator. HEVEA is written in Objective Caml.

HEVEA renders symbols using the attribute FACE=symbol to the opening tag <FONT... >. Browsers should undergo some configuration to show these symbols. The on-line manual explains how to proceed for Netscape on Unix systems (see section Browser configuration). Windows Explorer on Windows apparently does not require being configured to show symbols.

The source distribution (see below) should compile on any Unix platform where Objective Caml version 3.07 is installed. Please notice that this last version of the Objective Caml is required, previous versions of Objective Caml cannot compile hevea 1.07.

By contrast, binary distributions are self-contained and do not require the Objective Caml system. This applies to the Linux, Solaris and Windows distribution.

I made this port depend only on the ocaml compiler, but

HEVEA is fully functional when other software are installed

  • A modern LaTeX installation including dvips.
  • The ghostcript Postcript interpreter.
  • the netpbm image processing package.

However, these softwares are optional and hevea runs without them, so i haven't put them as

dependancies, but this could be a good idea.

Since dp has no facilities for handling config files, the post_activation target writes a message to help the user have it working well, by setting the TEXINPUTS environment variable
