This program is a mathematical equation editor. Like a word
processor that lets you write text, MathScript is used to write
mathematical formulas.
It offers you a variety of mathematical and physical symbols and lots
of objects like fractions, roots, brackets and matrices to compose
formulas, which can then be imported into word processors or DTP
applications to produce scientific documents.
Here is an overview of the features of MathScript:
* WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get)
While you edit your formula it is displayed in its final look.
Editing is done like a word processor, use the keyboard to enter
characters, move the cursor with the cursor keys or the mouse, mark
blocks by dragging the mouse...
* MUI
Uses MUI 3.x for its nice font-sensitive resizeable and customizable
GUI.
* Symbols, Objects
Extensive amount of symbols and objects, accessable with the
keyboard and/or popup menus
* PostScript Fonts
Uses industry-standard scalable PostScript Type1 or Type3 fonts. You
can choose different fonts for the following types of characters:
variable, function, text, greek, symbol, number and 2 special
purpose fonts.
* AutoFormat
MathScript automatically formats your input, i.e. it uses the
appropriate font for each character.
So called "styles" affect the way this is being done. The following
styles exist:
Math, Variable, Function, Greek, Text, Extra1, Extra2.
* Function Recognition
MathScript "knows" the most common function names (like sin) and is
able to automatically apply the function font to it
* Export
Save formulas as EPS (PostScript), IFF, TIFF or LaTeX files
* Import
Files produced by the export function can be loaded back again
* ARexx
It has an ARexx port with lots of commands
* Clipboard
Support the system clipboard for cut, copy and paste operations
* Function Keys
ARexx scripts can be assigned to function keys
* Online Help
It offers extensive online help in four different ways:
- Menu Help: AmigaGuide help for menu items
- Gadget Help: AmigaGuide help for gadgets
- Bubble Help: Help bubbles for gadgets
- Quick Help: Status bar help for gadgets and popup menu items
* Toolbar
Access the most used functions with nice little image buttons
* Locale
Supports locale.library (OS 2.1+) for localized GUI text
* Registration
Registering is easily done with the little Registration Tool
