I'm trying to convert a .tex file into a word file using latex2rtf. In the terminal, I cd the folder the .tex file resides. The .tex file name is "linear algebra". I then wrote the following command on the terminal

mymac$ latex2rtf [-options] inputfile[linear_algebra.tex]

I get the following error message:

(Not set):1   Only a single file can be processed at a time
(Not set):1   Error!  Type "latex2rtf -h" for help

What should I do?


Looks like OP used literally: latex2rtf [-options] inputfile[linear_algebra.tex] and thus using so called standard placeholders as used in the documentation specifying: latex2rtf linear_algebra.tex should solve the problem.
