# I/O, Saving, and Latex

Note that Julia's standard I/O functionality can be used to save Symbolics expressions out to files. For example, here we will generate an in-place version of `f`

and save the anonymous function to a `.jl`

file:

```
using Symbolics
@variables u[1:3]
function f(u)
[u[1]-u[3],u[1]^2-u[2],u[3]+u[2]]
end
ex1, ex2 = build_function(f(u),u)
write("function.jl", string(ex2))
```

`898`

Now we can do something like:

`g = include("function.jl")`

`#1 (generic function with 1 method)`

and that will load the function back in. Note that this can be done to save the transformation results of Symbolics.jl so that they can be stored and used in a precompiled Julia package.

## Latexification

Symbolics.jl's expressions support Latexify.jl, and thus

```
using Latexify
latexify(ex)
```

will produce LaTeX output from Symbolics models and expressions. This works on basics like `Term`

all the way to higher primitives like `ODESystem`

and `ReactionSystem`

.
