The Latex to LSC Compiler
This page explains how to write Contextul LSCs (Con-LSC) in Latex, compile them into PlayGo LSC instances, and finally execute them.
In nutshell, these are the required steps:
- Download the PlayGo Environment.
- Add Latex Con-LSCs to LSC.tex.
- Execute the Latex2PlayGo compiler.
- Import the compiled file in PlayGo and execute it.
The PlayGo Environment
First you need to download (here) a PlayGo version that includes a template project and the Latex2PlayGo compiler.
After extracting the zip file you will find the following directory structure (the structure includes only directories relevant to this tutorial). Directories are marked with (D) and files with (F):

The Latex Con-LSC Language
Our group has developed a dedicated Latex package for easily creating diagrams with a simple textual notation, and presenting them graphically.
The Latex2LSC compiler is designed to be a proof-of-concept tool for Con-LSC executability.
Therefore the supported LSC idioms in Latex Con-LSC is only a subset of the PlayGo LSC idioms.
The complete list of the supported idoms in Latex Con-LSC is given in the Latex Con-LSC package.
