# Is there some functionality to spit out LaTeX code for typesetting matrices?

For instance to typeset 3 x 3 random matrix of floats, I would like to call a function (or a macro) to produce the typesetting code. Is there such a thing?

You might want to go through SymPy:

using SymPy
v = Sym.(rand(3,3))
args = ()
SymPy.sympy_meth(:latex, v, args...)


with args detailed here: https://docs.sympy.org/latest/modules/printing.html#sympy.printing.latex.latex

Have been learning LaTeX of late thanks to you all here…
Using output by @isaacsas, here are two templates that produce an isolated table output (vs. inserting the snippet into a larger TeX doc).
These use the {standalone} document class which requires the [preview] statement to be used as well. (I see now a monospace font would be better)
(EDIT: here is link to details on the standalone class and preview requirement: https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/50162/how-to-make-a-standalone-document-with-one-equation):

\documentclass[preview]{standalone}
\begin{document}
\begin{equation}
\left[
\begin{array}{ccc}
0.18458975587092463 & 0.9298785408616752 & 0.34542681064934255 \\
0.9326960389944068 & 0.40297929303916424 & 0.2930744179979483 \\
0.22849589421017158 & 0.1690502411807564 & 0.5325580036745081 \\
\end{array}
\right]
\end{equation}{~} % Remove the '{~}' to remove padding below figure
\end{document}


produces this, which has a figure # that may not be ideal. Note the {~} added for padding at bottom of array output for bottom padding:

To remove the figure number, used the $$...$$ syntax ($$...$$ can be used in lieu of $$…$$) and removed begin/end {equation} :

\documentclass[preview]{standalone}
\begin{document}
$$\left[ \begin{array}{ccc} 0.18458975587092463 & 0.9298785408616752 & 0.34542681064934255 \\ 0.9326960389944068 & 0.40297929303916424 & 0.2930744179979483 \\ 0.22849589421017158 & 0.1690502411807564 & 0.5325580036745081 \\ \end{array} \right]$${~} % Remove the '{~}' to remove padding below figure
\end{document}


produces:
