# The BREQN packages This is the latest repository for the breqn package, originally developed by Michael J. Downes and later taken over by Morten Høgholm. The version of the package here will be used as the source for current CTAN releases. Internal updates are planned but no major development is expected. Contributors welcome --- if you dare. Feedback should be directed to the Issue Tracker at: <https://github.com/wspr/breqn/issues> ## Installation Running TeX on each dtx file extracts the runtime files. See the dtx files for details. ## The code ### breqn The breqn package facilitates automatic line-breaking of displayed math expressions. The package was originally developed by Michael J. Downes. ### flexisym This package turns math symbols into macros. Is is required by breqn so that breqn can make intelligent decisions with respect to line-breaking and other details. ### mathstyle Ensures uniform syntax for math subscript (_) and superscript (^) operations so that they always take exactly one argument. Grants access to the current mathstyle which eases several tasks such as avoiding the many pitfalls of \mathchoice and \mathpalette. This package is used by flexisym.

breqn – Automatic line breaking of displayed equations
The package provides solutions to a number of common difficulties in writing displayed equations and getting high-quality output. For example, it is a well-known inconvenience that if an equation must be broken into more than one line, ‘left...right’ constructs cannot span lines. The breqn package makes them work as one would expect whether or not there is an intervening line break.
The single most ambitious goal of the package, however, is to support automatic linebreaking of displayed equations. Such linebreaking cannot be done without substantial changes under the hood in the way formulae are processed; the code must be watched carefully, keeping an eye on possible glitches.
