What does one need to do to get the
fancy-preview script going
with only a Windows Tex Live installation thus far.
[Quick digression: we use bibtex;
does fancy-preview work with bibtex?]
Windows Tex Live supposedly comes with Perl:
Tex Live's site somewhat ominously states that it comes with "its own version of Perl."
which I take to mean that:
- it comes with Perl, without notable changes, or
- it's a modified version, cooked up to do whatever Windows Tex Live needs.
I tried to run:
perl fancy-preview <filename>; however,
I received the error
'perl' is not recognized as an internal or external command.
I think I need to link the program to the command prompt somehow. Any suggestions? [Closest thing I found.]
I copied the
..\texlive\2015\tlpkg\tlperl folder to a local directory,
and I placed my file with the perl.exe binary.
The command prompt then pointed out that
fancy-preview.pl was not found.
I feel like there's some steps which need to be taken
such that these things are all found.
Calling these files with Tex Works:
Also, is there a method to call these straight from TexWorks?
pdflatex.exe is called fine enough.
arara makes multiple calls even easier.
Is there a method to call
perl fancy-preview for the file?
Is there a method to automate it into an arara batch?
Installing Other Prerequisites:
Are these included by default with
The Tex Live manager pulls up
fancy-preview.sty when I search for them
but this may just be because they are mentioned in the documentation.
