Scientific text editor.
TeXmacs is a text editing platform which is specialized for scientists. It is ideal for editing structured documents with different types of content. It has robust support for mathematical formulas and plots. It can also act as an interface to many external systems for computer algebra (i.e. Maxima, Pari, gTybalt, Axiom or Giac), numerical analysis or statistics such as R and Octave. TeXmacs is completely extensible via Guile.
The Jolly Writer, by Joris van der Hoeven.
The book covers the main features of the latest version of TeXmacs: its wysiwyg user interface, mathematics, tables, professional typography, technical pictures, laptop presentations, structured editing, interfaces to systems for symbolic and numeric computations, customizable style sheets, the versioning tool, and much more.
The primary aim of The Jolly Writer is to guide you through this world of possibilities. While hacking your way through the jungle of style tags, keyboard shortcuts, mathematical homoglyphs, hanging punctuation, structured insertions, morphing animations, among others, you will slowly but surely unravel their mysteries and deeper why. At the end of the road, maybe you will become a jolly writer yourself.
