Produces HTML/JPEG slides from a TeX or LaTeX source

Latex2slides produces HTML/JPEG slides from a TeX or LaTeX source. The program first produces a multipage postscript (using latex or tex + dvips). Each postscript page is converted to a Jpeg image using ImageMagick's convert. The program then makes one HTML page for each Jpeg (or slide), and an index.html contents page. As a result, each page in your slide presentation corresponds to one of the postscript pages you would obtain from the LaTeX source. Alternatively, the source can be a multipage postscript, DVI or PDF file, and the image format for the slides can be set to PNG.
