## Re: [O] LaTeX export problem

Hi,

I am having similar problems with LaTeX export. I am exporting source
code snippets (XML) which has many variables with underscores in their
names. At some point in the process of switching to more recent Org
the export started producing incorrect LaTeX so the generation of PDF
fails, therefore the functionality is unusable for me.

Could you point us to any documentation on how to switch to the new
exporter? Is the tutorial
http://orgmode.org/worg/org-tutorials/org-latex-export.html still
relevant?

Thanks
Alex
