NAME
MathML::itex2MML - Convert itex equations to MathML
SYNOPSIS
use MathML::itex2MML;
$text = 'This is an inline equation: $\sin(\pi/2)=1$.';
# convert embedded itex equations to MathML:
$converted = itex_html_filter($text); # This is an inline equation: $\sin(\pi/2)=1$.
# just the equations:
$converted = itex_filter($text); # $\sin(\pi/2)=1$
$text = '\sin(\pi/2)=1';
# inline equation (without the $'s)
$converted = itex_inline_filter($text); # $\sin(\pi/2)=1$
# block equation (without the $$'s)
$converted = itex_block_filter($text); # $\sin(\pi/2)=1$
DESCRIPTION
MathML::itex2MML converts itex (a dialect of LaTeX) equations into
MathML. Inline equations are demarcated by $..$ or \(...\). Display
equations are demarcated by $$...$$ or \[...\]. The syntax supported
is described at https://golem.ph.utexas.edu/~distler/blog/itex2MMLcommands.html .
It is strongly suggested that you run the output through MathML::Entities,
to convert named entities into either numeric character references or UTF-8 characters,
if you intend putting the result on the Web.
MathML::itex2MML is based on the commandline converter, itex2MML.
FUNCTIONS
The following functions are exported by default.
* itex_html_filter
Converts the equations, passing the rest of the text through, unchanged.
* itex_filter
Outputs just the converted equations.
* itex_inline_filter
Converts an inline equation (without the $'s).
* itex_block_filter
Converts a block equation (without the $$'s)
