./www/mimetex, CGI to convert LaTeX math expression to GIF image

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.72, Package name: mimetex-1.72, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

MimeTeX, licensed under the gpl, lets you easily embed LaTeX math in your html
pages. It parses a LaTeX math expression and immediately emits the corresponding
gif image, rather than the usual TeX dvi. And mimeTeX is an entirely separate
little program that doesn't use TeX or its fonts in any way. It's just one cgi
that you put in your site's cgi-bin/ directory, with no other dependencies. So
mimeTeX is very easy to install. And it's equally easy to use. Just place an
html <img> tag in your document wherever you want to see the corresponding LaTeX
expression.

Update mimetex to 0.70.

* 6 Sep 2008 -- An image like XXX doesn't look as good as the same image XXX
  that's vertically aligned with your surrounding text. Along with several
  standard HTTP header fields, mimeTeX now also emits a special
  Vertical-Align: -nn   header, where -nn is the number of pixels (usually
  negative as illustrated) needed for a   style="Vertical-Align: -nn px"
  attribute in the <img> tag used to render your expression.
  See the mimeTeX manual for further discussion.
* 5 Sep 2008 -- Users running mimeTeX as a Win32 DLL with Shital Shah's Code
  Project reported that color directives aren't reset, e.g., an expression
  containing \red is rendered red as directed, but all subsequent images are
  red, too.
  This has been fixed (along with several similar bugs nobody noticed).
  It never affected users running mimeTeX in the usual way, as a cgi.
