README

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. Installation: 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.
