I currently have a single document with the class
srcbook. I have partitioned it into various subfiles for easier handling. This document is fine by itself.... however, I want to include the entire document (title page, TOC, etc) in another document as a self contained section.
If that doesn't make sense, consider how LaTeX has various commands for structuring your document:
subsubsection, etc, etc. That document then has a table of contents based on that structure. However, it is sometimes beneficial to have / remind people what is in the current structure. Along those lines the package
minitoc allows one to have a TOC for their chapters.
subfiles one can build up their document from various small documents containing these structured elements.
What I would like to do is essentially equivalent to making
book its own structure element. Thus one would end up with a meta document containing several books, each with their own title page, TOC, chapters, etc.
Thus one would have a title page for the document made of books as well.
One might ask, "why not simple take each element and demote it in the structure hierarchy? e.g. book --> chapter, chapter --> section, etc. Well, then I would need a TOC for sections, sections would need a chapter-esque header formatting, etc. Whereas the problem I am asking, is simply leaving the current structure in take, but allowing them to be pooled together as if there is a higher structure? e.g.
My original phrasing of this question was as follows:
This is, what I hope to be, a fairly straight forward and simple question. When using
subfiles can one pool multiple documents with a
book class? Or, at the very least, separate title pages and accordingly separate TOC?
