A new pack­age has been in­stalled at tug.ctan.org and will make its way to your fa­vorite lo­cal mir­ror in a day or two. Thanks again, Jim Hef­feron ====================================================================== The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor. Name of con­tri­bu­tion: EasyLaTeX Author's name: Bayle Shanks Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: sup­port/ea­sy­la­tex Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Turns "ASCII math" into LaTeX source Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text given by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor: - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Why is it quicker to ex­press sim­ple equa­tions in plain­text than it is to write the equiv­a­lent LaTeX? EasyLa­tex is a pre­pro­ces­sor to make writ­ing LaTeX much eas­ier. EasyLa­tex ac­cepts 'ASCII math' such as "The iden­tity ma­trix is the ma­trix for which a_i j = 1 when i = j, and 0 ev­ery­where else; for ex­am­ple, in three di­men­sions, I = [1 0 0 ; 0 1 0 ; 0 0 1]." and gen­er­ates equiv­a­lent LaTeX source doc­u­ments. - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- You can have a look at the pack­age at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/sup­port/ea­sy­la­tex al­though you may get a bet­ter net­work con­nec­tion by vis­it­ing a mir­ror of CTAN that is near to you; see http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/README.mir­rors

easy – Faster and sim­pler writ­ing of doc­u­ments

Easy con­verts sim­ple text files into doc­u­ments and can also pro­cess them with .

Syn­tax of the source files takes ideas from wiki in­ter­faces, and gen­er­ates the com­mands for sev­eral con­structs, in the course of pro­cess­ing.
