Input and Output Redirection

How can I get my program to take input from a file rather than me typing it in? How can I get it to send output to a file rather than the screen?

Redirecting input and output

To tell a program myprog, which lives in the current directory, to get its input from a file input.txt, use

torbernite% ./myprog < input.txt

To send normal output (e.g, the results of print statements) to output.txt, use

IT Courses and Training

Within the Mathematical Institute

  • There is a large amount of online documentation and answers to questions on the Mathematical Institute help web pages.
  • Books and manuals are available in the Whitehead Library in the St Giles Building and the Alan Tayler Room in Dartington House
  • The computing officers are also available to give one to one assistance as required wherever possible.

Cyrillic

Within LaTeX

To enable cyrillic within LaTeX add the lines

\usepackage[OT2,OT1]{fontenc}
\newcommand\cyr{%
\renewcommand\rmdefault{wncyr}%
\renewcommand\sfdefault{wncyss}%
\renewcommand\encodingdefault{OT2}%
\normalfont
\selectfont}
\DeclareTextFontCommand{\textcyr}{\cyr}

to the preamble in your LaTeX document. Then the command \textcyr will produce cyrillic text, e.g. \textcyr{a}.

WV

WV (formerly called wordview) provides a set of commands for converting Microsoft Word Documents to other formats.

NOTE: WV is still a developing package and may not handle figures correctly in all case. It is unlikely to handle equations at all.
