This is a program to convert LaTeX source files into FrameMaker MML (Maker Markup Language) format. Run la_mml on a LaTeX file to generate MML output:

la_mml -a myarticle.tex

Now open la_mml.mml with FrameMaker. The resulting format will be approximate. To improve it do the following:

Documents may start with the \documentstyle command (LaTeX 2.09), or with \documentclass and \usepackage (LaTeX2e). Style files and packages are largely ignored.
