This is the SageTeX package. It allows you to embed code, results of computations, and plots from the Sage mathematics software suite (http://sagemath.org) into LaTeX documents. ====================================================================
SageTeX is included with Sage, so to use it, you only need to make the file sagetex.sty known to TeX; that file will be in SAGE_ROOT/local/share/texmf/tex/generic/sagetex, along with documentation and examples. See the Sage installation guide at http://sagemath.org/doc/installation/ for complete instructions.
If you can't or don't want to install SageTeX by using Sage, you can use the CTAN package. If sagetex.py and sagetex.sty haven't been extracted from the .dtx file, you'll need to do:
- Run `latex sagetexpackage.ins'
If a PDF file of the documentation wasn't included with this distribution of SageTeX, you will need to build the documentation yourself. To do that:
You can skip step 3 if you don't care about the index. You will need the pgf and tikz packages installed to typeset the figures.
The file example.tex has, as you likely guessed, a bunch of examples showing you how this package works. You can compile it using a another latex-sage-latex cycle as in steps 1-2-4 above. Note that example.tex includes some PNG graphics which latex cannot use; to see those, use pdflatex instead of regular latex or enable the imagemagick option. (See the documentation.)
To use the SageTeX package with your own documents, see the "Installation" section of the documentation.
SageTeX now includes `remote-sagetex.py', a plain Python script that allows you to use a remote Sage server instead of a local Sage installation, so now you can use SageTeX on any computer with TeX and Python 2.6 installed.
