CTAN Comprehensive TeX Archive Network

Direc­tory support/tex2mail

tex2mail is a perl script to convert TeX files into
plain text files: various mathematical symbols
(sums, products, integrals, sub/superscripts, fractions, square
roots,...) are replaced by "ascii art" that spreads over
multiple lines if necessary. The result attemps to approach WYSIWYG
and is more readable to human beings than the flat-style TeX code.

Adapt the source code to your local needs by change of
the first line of the tex2mail file for the correct
full path name of your perl executable.

tex2­mail – Con­verts to mail­able "ASCII art"

Tex2­mail is a perl script to con­vert files into plain text files: var­i­ous math­e­mat­i­cal sym­bols (sums, prod­ucts, in­te­grals, sub/su­per­scripts, frac­tions, square roots, ...) are re­placed by “ascii art” that spreads over mul­ti­ple lines if nec­es­sary. This is help­ful for peo­ple who can’t read flu­ently.
