Wowwwwww.... excellent program...

Ketan Tang

This program is really impressive!


Excellent program! Using to check my publish equations in editor. Very simple to use and implement. Thank you so much!



This function is published under: "Copyright 2006-2010 The MathWorks, Inc.". It contains a function stored in binary form, which is self-extracting. I'm surprised to find this great example for breaking the FEX policy "no compiled files" especially created from TMW.
There is no description of what is encoded in this block. How can I check that this binary code is no malware?

Even after 4 years the instructions are very lean - in a screaming difference to the excellent idea and the nice implementation.

Good work!

Loly LaFramboise

Neat! Just a suggestion though: It would be nice to be able to select and copy the latex equation (the result) like an image into text editor.

Ben did an excellent job with this. I recommend it and will put it as pick of the week.

I won't give this a rating (yet) because its clearly a work in progress. I'd like to see more instructions on how to use it. But, my general opinion from what I've seen so far is: NEAT!
