Project README

This is the SageTeX package.

It allows you to embed code, results of computations, and plots from the Sage mathematics software suite ( into LaTeX documents.

Using SageTeX

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/venv/share/texmf/tex/latex/sagetex, along with documentation and examples. See the Sage tutorial at for a quick usage introduction, and for complete installation instructions later on the same page at

The complete documentation is in sagetex.pdf, in the SAGE_ROOT/... directory mentioned above.

Generating SageTeX

If you want to extract any of SageTeX's files from the .dtx sources, you can do

  1. Run latex sagetex.ins

To regenerate the documentation, do

  1. Run latex sagetex.dtx
  2. Run sage sagetex.sage
  3. Run the indexing commands that the .ins file told you about.
  4. Run latex sagetex.dtx again.

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.
