mathtex – A CGI program to use to put mathematics on the web

Math is a CGI program, written in C, that uses and either dvipng or dvips/convert to emit GIF or PNG images of mathematical expressions. Users can put mathematics directly in html pages with an <img> tag of the form
  <img src="/cgi-bin/mathtex.cgi?f(x)=\int_{-\infty}^xe^{-t^2}dt">
(see the package home page for a complete discussion).

Math is a successor of the author's earlier mim; but math uses real , where as mim uses its own built-in fonts, interpreter and rendering engine. Users who have available on their server can obtain higher quality images and full support with math. Users whose server doesn't offer can continue to use mim. The two programs are “plug-compatible”, using the same <img> tag “user interface”, so migration is trivial.

The package home page carries extensive documentation of Math.
