There is GNU TeXmacs, an interactive typesetting system which can work as a user interface for a number of CAS and plotting softwares. The plugins included in the distribution are: axiom, gnuplot, gtybalt, maple, maxima, pari, r, scilab, giac, graphviz, macaulay2, mathemagix, mupad, octave, qcl, reduce, yacas. I have also heard that Matlab people are developping a texmacs plugin of their own. TeXmacs is a GNU project and licensed under the GPL. It is not yet possible to "make computations over the internet" (the CAS has to be installed on the same machine as TeXmacs) but TeXmacs can be used as a web browser. The HTML conversion abilities are being improved and there is already a sketchy support for MathML presentation. In case you want more math, you can use just browse on native texmacs documents over HTTP. The UNIX version is pretty mature and there is a contributed experimental Windows port. -- David Allouche | GNU TeXmacs -- Writing is a pleasure Free software engineer | http://www.texmacs.org http://ddaa.net | http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/texmacs david@allouche.net | allouche@texmacs.org TeXmacs is NOT a LaTeX front-end and is unrelated to emacs.Received on Tuesday, 22 July 2003 05:17:45 GMT
