I'm currently working with the minted package for source code highlighting.

As the title says, I'm looking for an option to compile latex code with minted content on a system that has not installed the requirements. I thought of a way of using the already generated files (generated by a system that has minted installed).

Unfortunately, I have not found any option to avoid the recompilation. A option to tell minted not to call any external programs and just use the already generated files would be great.

The Background: I need to share my latex files with someone who has not installed minted and the required additional software, Pygments. But the document I have to share heavily uses the package and a switch is not a suitable solution for me.

Is this even possible or do I have to install minted on the other system as well?
