How can I read .tex file, and save it's content into string using python?
I was searching for the solution on the internet, but I couldn't find anything useful.
I'm using Windows not Linux.
What I managed to do is:
f = open("xxx.tex","a")
f.write('This is a test\n')
You can do like this:
texdoc =  # a list of string representing the latex document in python # read the .tex file, and modify the lines with open('test.tex') as fin: for line in fin: texdoc.append(line.replace('width=.5\\textwidth', 'width=.9\\textwidth')) # write back the new document with open('test.tex', 'w') as fout: for i in range(len(texdoc)): fout.write(texdoc[i])
or like this (could be trickier):
from __future__ import print_function import fileinput # inplace=True means that standard output is directed to the input file for line in fileinput.input('test.tex', inplace=True): print(line.replace('width=.5\\textwidth', 'width=.9\\textwidth'), end=' ')))
