If you're still running Mathematica 2.x under some form of
VMS, then the answer is no. You will have to write your
own formatting function to compute linebreaks.
Under Mathematica 3.0 and 4, the TeXForm function is capable
querying the front end for line break information, provided
that the kernel is being run from the front end and that the
expression supplied by the user is a box form or a Cell
expression with box form contents.
Let's say that I wanted to take the result of Expand[(x + y)^20]
and format it with TeXForm. The syntax for doing this would
TeXForm[ToBoxes[Expand[(x + y)^20]]]
If you were writing this to a file, you could also do:
ToString[ToBoxes[Expand[(x + y)^20], TeXForm]
The front end computes the line breaks based on the default
font sizes and format types defined by your style sheet or
inherited from global values. If you want greater control
over this, you can do something along the lines of:
BoxData[ToBoxes[Expand[(x + y)^20], TraditionalForm]],
FontFamily -> "Times",
FontSize -> 14,
PageWidth -> 640
If your windowing environment provides TeX Computer Modern fonts
so that they can be used in notebooks, you can specify that this
font be used at the size used in your TeX documents, and the
linebreak calculations will be pretty much on target.
Note that there are several macros that are emitted by the output
of TeXForm. You can find definitions for these macros in
notebook.sty, which appears on the Mathematica CD-ROM.
