#203 unexpected exit when generating pdf


I have appended a file to the end

the following command on a module multi that contains prcoessor.py fails

~/programs/epydoc/3.0b/bin/epydoc --pdf --debug multi/
with the following output

Running latex...

Error: latex failed: exitcode=256

epydoc version 3.0b from the website (though --version report 2.1!)
also the same result with epydoc 2.1

python version
Python 2.5.1c1 (release25-maint, Apr 12 2007, 21:00:25)
[GCC 4.1.2 (Ubuntu 4.1.2-0ubuntu4)] on linux2

checked with 2.4 and the result is the same

running on ubuntu feisty fawn

running with just the --latex option also produces files taht cannot be run through the latex to pdf converter:

clearly on line 1255 brackets are getting put in the wrong places:


the time the application started in seconds since the epoch



the time the application ended in seconds since the epoch


\# TODO: check my format is correctr)}



the following diff solves the problem

diff latex/multi.processor-module.tex latex/multi.processor-module.tex.good
