API Call Descriptions

Each description describes one API function. It starts with the syntax to use for each of the interfaces, as follows:

Command line:
tlapi [‑x] ‑cFUNCTION-NAME ...
Library call:
result = function-name (arg, ...)
Scripting call:
result = method-name (arg, ...)

Some functions are not implemented in all of the interfaces. For example, the Preview function is not implemented in the scripting interface.

Some functions are combinations of others. For example, the Convert XML to PDF function is only available in the scripting interface. To perform the equivalent function using the command line or library interfaces you would call the Make Partition, Compose, Get PDF and Remove Partition functions.
