TeXmacs is a ``structured text editor'' with special support for
mathematical expressions. The typesetting quality of the
produced documents is intended to be as high as possible,
i.e. comparable to the quality of documents produced with TeX;
The user interface aims to be as natural and powerful as
possible. In particular, the text you see on the screen
corresponds exactly to what you get after printing. TeXmacs
comes with a typed lisp extension language. Like emacs, this
allows you for instance to redefine keyboard and menu actions.
TeXmacs can also be used as an interface for computer algebra
systems. In particular, automatically generated mathematical
formulas are typeset in a satisfactory way. It is possible to
generate LaTeX and Postscript output from TeXmacs. After
compilation, the LaTeX output will resemble the Postscript
output, although we guarantee no complete compatibility between
TeXmacs and TeX. It is also possible to import ``well written
LaTeX documents.'' The present release includes an interface
with ghostscript, which enables you to include postscript (and
some other formats) of images.
