|Description:||TeX-based WYSIWYG editor (22.214.171.124-2)|
GNU TeXmacs is a free scientific text editor, which was both inspired by TeX and GNU Emacs. The editor allows you to write structured documents via a wysiwyg (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) and user friendly interface. New styles may be created by the user. The program implements high-quality typesetting algorithms and TeX fonts, which help you to produce professionally looking documents. The high typesetting quality still goes through for automatically generated formulas, which makes TeXmacs suitable as an interface for computer algebra systems. TeXmacs also supports the Guile/Scheme extension language, so that you may customize the interface and write your own extensions to the editor.
There exist now 3 different Fink packages for TeXmacs, corresponding to different graphics libraries: 1. The "texmacs" package uses X11 graphics. This is the traditional interface, and this is the most mature and most stable among the 3 packages. It provides the "texmacs" command. 2. The "texmacs-qt" package uses the qt4-mac graphics library. This has a more Mac-like look and feel, and it is the one currently most actively developed, but this version has still some bugs. It comes now as a standard Mac app "TeXmacs-qt", to be found in /Applications/Fink/. 3. The "texmacs-aqua" package uses the Mac-native cocoa library. This is a standard Mac app, to be found in /Applications/Fink/, but it is still very rough around the edges, and it seems to be abandoned. TeXmacs provides a unified GUI for asymptote, cadabra, gnuplot, graphviz, macaulay2, maxima, octave, pari-gp, python, scilab and many other programs if they are installed. Ghostscript is needed for importing images. Since even the TeXmacs documentation contains images, ghostscript is strongly recommended. For importing non-postscript images, the netpbm-bin package is recommended.
