18:25 vicash hi, is there any nice way to write mathematical equations in Perl pod type documentation without using Latex ? I know markdown doesn't support math equations, but if I use MathML within some XHTML tags I may get what I want. What is the more common method the perl community uses here since PDL users are physicists and mathematicians. ?

20:06 sivoais vicash: run4flat had a demo using MathJax. let me see if I can find it
20:09 sivoais vicash: ah, I remembered the wrong person. it was jberger <http://mailman.jach.hawaii.edu/pipermai​l/pdl-porters/2013-January/005280.html>
20:15 vicash sivoais: thanks. looks like i can embed mathjax under the <script> tags.
20:29 jberger__ Just remember that the CPAN sites scrub script tags
20:30 jberger__ That was one of the benefits of my port of the pdl website
20:32 vicash jberger__  ok will check that out in detail

21:02 sivoais perhaps one could expand the mathml using a phantomjs
22:25 vicash mathml is super ugly because it is xml !
22:48 sivoais another way would be to use <http://dlmf.nist.gov/LaTeXML/m​anual/usage/usage.single.html>
22:51 sivoais but yes, I agree, the XML isn't going to be pretty
