## C.5  Other LATEX to html translators

This short section gives pointers to a few other translators. I performed not extensive testing and make no thorough comparison.

LaTeX2html
LaTeX2html is a full system. It is written in perl and calls LATEX when in trouble. As a consequence, LaTeX2html is powerful but it may fail on large documents, for speed and memory reasons. More information on LaTeX2html can be found at
TTH
The principle behind TTH is the same as the one of HEVEA: write a fast translator as a lexer, use symbol fonts and tables. However, there are differences, TTH accepts both TEX and LATEX source, TTH is written in C and the full source is not available (only lex output is available). Additionally, TTH insist on not using any kind of LATEX generated information and will show proper cross-reference labels, even when no .aux file is present. TTH output is a single document, whereas HACHA can cut the output of HEVEA into several files. (however there exists a commercial version of TTH that provides this extra functionality). TTH can be found at
TeX4ht
TeX4ht is a highly configurable TeX-based authoring system dedicated mainly to produce hypertext. It interacts with TeX-based applications through style files and postprocessors, leaving the processing of the source files to the native TeX compiler. As a result, TeX4ht may be more powerful than HEVEA, but may also be more difficult to configure. More information on TeX4ht can be found at:
htmlgen
The htmlgen translator is specialized for producing the Caml manuals. This is HEVEA direct ancestor and I owe much to its author, X. Leroy. See [htmlgen] for a description of htmlgen and a (bit outdated) discussion on LATEX to html translation.
