Dear GAP Forum,
Dima Pasechnik asked the following.
is there a piece of GAP or other computer code written
that allows one to produce nicely formatted GAP character tables
in LaTeX or TeX ?
Often I prefer the format used in the ATLAS of Finite Groups;
this format can be realized inside the verbatim environment of LaTeX.
A first approximation to this (including the distribution to
several pages if one prescribes linelengths) can be produced by
the `Display' function of GAP.
This is clearly not optimal, for example because irrationalities
are encoded by strings which are explained in a separate legend,
so some postprocessing might be useful.
However, the point is the question what one really regards as
a nice format for the table in question,
not the creation of a LaTeX tabular or array structure for a given
matrix with some decoration for the rows and columns.
All the best,
