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

MathTeX is a CGI pro­gram, writ­ten in C, that uses LaTeX and ei­ther dvipng or dvips/con­vert to emit GIF or PNG im­ages of LaTeX 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).

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