mathtex – A CGI program to use to put mathematics on the web

Math is a CGI pro­gram, writ­ten in C, that uses and ei­ther dvipng or dvips/con­vert to emit GIF or PNG im­ages of math­e­mat­i­cal ex­pres­sions. Users can put math­e­mat­ics di­rectly in html pages with an <img> tag of the form
  <img src="/cgi-bin/math­tex.cgi?f(x)=\int_{-\in­fty}^xe^{-t^2}dt">
(see the pack­age home page for a com­plete dis­cus­sion).

Math is a suc­ces­sor of the au­thor's ear­lier mim; but math uses real , where as mim uses its own built-in fonts, in­ter­preter and ren­der­ing en­gine. Users who have avail­able on their server can ob­tain higher qual­ity im­ages and full sup­port with math. Users whose server doesn't of­fer can con­tinue to use mim. The two pro­grams are “plug-com­pat­i­ble”, us­ing the same <img> tag “user in­ter­face”, so mi­gra­tion is triv­ial.

The pack­age home page car­ries ex­ten­sive doc­u­men­ta­tion of Math.
