Convert TEX to PS on Android via Java
Get Started with Android via Java APIs
Alternatively, you can get a ZIP file from downloads .
// load TEX file with an instance of Document class Document document = new Document("template.tex"); // save TEX as a DOC document.save("DocOutput.doc", SaveFormat.DOC); // load DOC with an instance of Document Document outputDocument = new com.aspose.words.Document("DocOutput.doc"); // call save method while passing SaveFormat.PS outputDocument.save("output.ps", SaveFormat.PS);
Get TEX File Information on Android via Java
Before converting TEX to PS, you might need information about the document including author, creation date, keywords, modify date, subject, and title. This information is helpful for the decision making for the conversion process. Using the powerful Aspose.PDF for Android via Java API, you can get all of it. To get file-specific information about a TEX file, first get the DocumentInfo object using getInfo method. Once the DocumentInfo object is retrieved, you can get the values of the individual properties.
// load TEX document Document doc = new Document("template.tex"); // get document information DocumentInfo docInfo = doc.getInfo(); // show document information System.out.println("Author: " + docInfo.getAuthor()); System.out.println("Creation Date: " + docInfo.getCreationDate()); System.out.println("Keywords: " + docInfo.getKeywords()); System.out.println("Modify Date: " + docInfo.getModDate()); System.out.println("Subject: " + docInfo.getSubject()); System.out.println("Title: " + docInfo.getTitle());
Insert Endnotes in PS Document in Android via Java
Apart from document conversion, you can also add a bunch of other features inside your Android Applications using Aspose.Words for Android via Java API. One of that feature is inserting endnotes and numbering in PS document. If you want to insert a footnote or an endnote in a PS document, please use DocumentBuilder.InsertFootnote method. This method inserts a footnote or endnote into the document. EndnoteOptions and FootnoteOptions classes represent numbering options for footnote and endnote.
// load document Document doc = new Document("input.DOC"); // initialize document builder DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc); // add text in it builder.write("Some text"); // insert footnote builder.insertFootnote(FootnoteType.ENDNOTE, "Endnote text."); // initialize endnote options EndnoteOptions option = doc.getEndnoteOptions(); // set restart rule option.setRestartRule(FootnoteNumberingRule.RESTART_PAGE); // set position option.setPosition(EndnotePosition.END_OF_SECTION); // save the document to disk. doc.save("output.ps", SaveFormat.PS);

TeX is a language that comprises of programming as well as mark-up features, used to typeset documents. Donald Knuth from Stanford University, is the creator of this resourceful typesetting system. Across the world, TeX is the ultimate choice of authors and publishers to produce high quality technical documents. TeX performs an outstanding job of formatting complex mathematical expressions. In conjunction with a high-quality phototypesetter, TeX competes the results generated by the best traditional typesetting systems. Therefore regarded as the classiest digital typographical systems.Read More

PostScript (PS) is a general-purpose page description language used in the business of desktop and electronic publishing. The main focus of PostScript (PS) is to facilitate the two-dimensional graphic design. Most languages require a distinct compilation stage before the code execution while Post Script (PS) format support a runtime straight forward interpretation. Its early version defines the graphical shapes, different text appearances and modelled imageries on printed pages or displayed pages, following the rules of Adobe imaging model. A program of PS is able to intercommunicate a document description between a composition and printing system keeping the device independent and high-level. Moreover this program is also capable of governing the appearance of text and graphics on a display.Read More
