# proposed sign for path integrals

Could someone please design an integral sign that looks like a Cornu spiral? i.e. the usual \int but with curly ends. Typed in LaTeX as \intc, it could go in the esint package or amsmath. It would signify a path integral in physics. \intc_a^b \exp{iS[x(t)]}{\cal D}x(t) would signify taking a sum over all paths from point a to point b. Right now one uses just \int_a^b, but it's not a Riemann or Lebesgue integral.

## Input Syntax

The fields for head line and text support a rather small subset of the TeX language since you are probably used to it. The following constructions are supported:

- An empty line starts a new paragraph.
- The following control sequences are supported:
`TeX`

,`eTeX`

,`LaTeX`

,`LaTeXe`

,`BibTeX`

,`XeTeX`

,`XeLaTeX`

,`TeXLaTeX`

,`MetaFont`

,`MetaPost`
