#### 4.1.2.12 LaTeX

Writes a table as a LaTeX tabular environment, suitable for insertion into a document intended for publication. This is only likely to be useful for fairly small tables.

The handler behaviour may be modified by specifying one or more comma-separated name=value configuration options in parentheses after the handler name, e.g. "latex(standalone=false)". The following options are available:

standalone = true|false
If true, the output is a freestanding LaTeX document consisting of a tabular environment within a table within a document. If false, the output is just a tabular environment.

If no output format is explicitly chosen, writing to a filename with the extension ".tex" (case insensitive) will select LaTeX format for output.

An example looks like this:

\begin{tabular}{|r|l|l|r|r|l|}
\hline
\multicolumn{1}{|c|}{RECNO} &
\multicolumn{1}{c|}{SPECIES} &
\multicolumn{1}{c|}{NAME} &
\multicolumn{1}{c|}{LEGS} &
\multicolumn{1}{c|}{HEIGHT} &
\multicolumn{1}{c|}{MAMMAL} \\
\hline
1 & pig & Pigling Bland & 4 & 0.8 & true\\
2 & cow & Daisy & 4 & 2.0 & true\\
3 & goldfish & Dobbin &  & 0.05 & false\\
4 & ant &  & 6 & 0.001 & false\\
5 & ant &  & 6 & 0.001 & false\\
6 & queen ant & Ma'am & 6 & 0.002 & false\\
7 & human & Mark & 2 & 1.8 & true\\
\hline\end{tabular}
