## Description¶

This function formats objects created by `mtable`

for inclusion into LaTeX files.

## Usage¶

```
mtable_format_latex(x,
useDcolumn=getOption("useDcolumn",TRUE),
colspec=if(useDcolumn)
paste("D{.}{",LaTeXdec,"}{",ddigits,"}",sep="")
else "l",
LaTeXdec=".",
ddigits=min(3,getOption("digits")),
useBooktabs=getOption("useBooktabs",TRUE),
toprule=if(useBooktabs) "\\toprule" else "\\hline\\hline",
midrule=if(useBooktabs) "\\midrule" else "\\hline",
cmidrule=if(useBooktabs) "\\cmidrule" else "\\cline",
bottomrule=if(useBooktabs) "\\bottomrule" else "\\hline\\hline",
interaction.sep = " $\\times$ ",
sdigits=min(1,ddigits),
compact=FALSE,
sumry.multicol=FALSE,
escape.tex=getOption("toLatex.escape.tex",FALSE),
signif.notes.type=getOption("toLatex.signif.notes.type","include"),
signif.notes.spec=getOption("toLatex.signif.notes.spec","p{.5\\linewidth}"),
...
)
```

## Arguments¶

`x`

an object of class

`mtable`

`useDcolumn`

should the

`dcolumn`

LaTeX package be used? If true, you will have to include`\usepackage{dcolumn}`

into the preamble of your LaTeX document.`colspec`

LaTeX table column format specifyer(s).

`LaTeXdec`

the decimal point in the final LaTeX output.

`ddigits`

alignment specification or digits after the decimal point.

`useBooktabs`

should the

`booktabs`

LaTeX package be used? If true, you will have to include`\usepackage{booktabs}`

into the preamble of your LaTeX document.`toprule`

appearance of the top border of the LaTeX

`tabular`

environment.`midrule`

how are coefficients and summary statistics separated in the LaTeX

`tabular`

environment.`cmidrule`

appearance of rules under section headings.

`bottomrule`

appearance of the bottom border of the LaTeX

`tabular`

environment.`interaction.sep`

a character string that separates factors that are involved in an interaction effect

`sdigits`

integer; number of digits after decimal dot for summary statistics.

`compact`

logical; should the table be compact, without extra columns between multi-equation models?

`sumry.multicol`

logical, should summaries enclosed into

`\multicol`

commands?`escape.tex`

logical, should symbols

`$`

,`_`

, and`^`

be escaped with backslashes?`signif.notes.type`

character string; should be either

`"include"`

,``”append”`, ``"drop"`

, or`"tnotes"`

. If`"append"`

, (very simple) LaTeX code is appended that contains notes that relate significance symbols to p-values. If`"include"`

, the LaTeX table will include a (multi-column) cell with these notes. If`"drop"`

, notes will not be added. If`"tnotes"`

, the exported LaTeX table is wrapped in a`threeparttable`

environment and the p-value notes are wrapped in a`tablenotes`

environment. This requires the LaTeX package`threeparttable`

in order to work.`signif.notes.spec`

character string; specifies format of cells that include notes about p-values; relevant only if

`signif.notes.type="include"`

`...`

further arguments, ignored.

## Value¶

A character string with code suitable for inclusion into a LaTeX-file.
