Input and output filters

Version: 3.5x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace, Scientific Word, & Scientific Notebook

The program uses filters to convert to and from various document formats.

Available input filters:

  • LaTeX

  • non-SWP/SW LaTeX—Version 5.5

  • ASCII or ANSI

  • Rich Text Format (RTF)

  • Wrapped files (.rap or .msg)—opened as LaTeX files

  • T3toTeX—SWP and SW only

  • Certain TI, HP, and Casio files (*.txt)

Available output filters:

  • SWP, SW, and SNB (*.tex)—The LaTeX filter uses tcilatex.tex, a collection of macros, to create the constructs in your document.

  • Portable LaTeX—The Portable LaTeX filter writes internal constructs using macros found only in standard LaTeX packages. It doesn't include tcilatex.tex.

  • RTF—With or without MathType.

  • HTML (Internet Explorer 5.5 and IE 6)

  • XHTML (Firefox/IE6 with MathPlayer2)(.xht)

  • Wrapped files—You can wrap documents in two formats:

    • .rap—for version 3.0 and higher of SWP and SW. When you wrap documents as .rap files, the program uses the Portable LaTeX filter.

    • .msg—for version 2.5 of SWP and SW and for SNB. When you wrap documents as .msg files, the program uses the LaTeX filter.

    When you unwrap a document, the program opens the files as LaTeX files.
