Bug#608105: ITP: libformconv -- math formula converter library

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-devel@lists.debian.org

   Package name: libformconv
        Version: 0.9.0
Upstream Author: Zoltán Kovács <kovzol@matek.hu> and others

    Description: math formula converter library
Formconv is a general conversion library and tool between different
formats for math formulae. It currently supports intuitive (a simplified
Pascal-like syntax), MathML and LISP as input formats and lots of
different output formats (among the others: LaTeX, HTML, MuPAD,
Mathematica, Maple, Maxima, gnuplot, Java, C, MathML and LISP).

Formconv is mainly used in mathematics web applications to check the
input syntactically and convert it to various formats in order to work
on it by  other  programs: CAS or other mathematics tools. Although many
CAS are able to export formulas in various formats, formconv is known to
be faster and smaller as a general tool.  However, there are no official
statistics or benchmarking tests yet to show scientifically reliable
differences of efficiency of the export facility of the mathematical
systems and formconv.

This package is a dependendy of rtzme (bug #599623).

Ciao, Giovanni.
