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,

Thomas
