**NAME**

blahtexml - Converts TeX equations into MathML

**SYNOPSIS**

**blahtexml** [__options__] __files__...

**DESCRIPTION**

This manual page documents briefly the **blahtexml** command.
**blahtexml** converts an equation given in a syntax close to TeX into
MathML. Blahtexml is a simple extension of blahtex. In addition to the
functionality of blahtex, blahtexml has XML processing in mind and is
able to process a whole XML document into another XML document. Instead
of converting only one formula at a time, blahtexml can convert all the
formulas of the given XML file into MathML.

**OPTIONS**

These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
options starting with two dashes (‘-’). A summary of options is
included below. For a complete description, see the online
documentation.
**--help** Show summary of options.
**--texvc-compatible-commands**
Enables use of commands that are specific to texvc, but that are
not standard TeX/LaTeX/AMS-LaTeX commands.
**--print-error-messages**
This will print out a list of all error IDs and corresponding
messages that blahtex can possibly emit inside an <error> block.

**MATHML** **OPTIONS**

These options control the MathML output of the blahtexml program.
**--mathml**
Enables MathML output.
**--xmlin**
This allows one to embed TeX equations in an existing MathML
code, using a special notation. The equations are given as
attributes (inline or block) in the
http://gva.noekeon.org/blahtexml namespace. Whenever blahtexml
meets such an equation, it expands it into the equivalent MathML
code.
For more information check
http://gva.noekeon.org/blahtexml/how_to_use.html
or the blahtexml manual.
**--annotate-TeX**
Produces TeX annotations in the MathML output.
**--annotate-PNG**
Produces PNG files and annotates the MathML output with the PNG
file name.
