Hello,

A little LaTex puzzle if someone has a few minutes to have a look ....

http://wiki.povray.org/content/User:Jholsenback

These are math formulas that appear in the reference and tutorial sections.
They all look like what appears in the Windows version of the documentation
with the exception of the prod and sum.

Check out section 3.2.1.6.1 of the reference to see what I'm talking about.

Sorry no money or glory, just my thanks for anyone who could figure this one
out.

Jim
PS: Bonus points for doing curvmath!

Hi Jim,

\sum_{i=a}^{b}{n_i}

and

\prod_{i=a}^{b}{n_i}

Hugo.

Ah .... I didn't notice that the I got from the distribution files was
differnt than the one I'm seeing in the finished product documentation. I'll
investigate that .... Thanks

I was talking about the missing sum and prod symbols (II and E) .... any

Iirc, I made these two images with a formula editor (open office?) before
the latex stuff was introduced.

Ingo,

Thanks for the reply .... well then it looks like I'm good to go as far as
how the wiki renders the formula (minus II and E symbols). Maybe that also
explains why the formula is somewhat different as well. I'm going to go with
what I have now with a follow up later. All the other formulas look OK ....
I can live with two near misses for now.

Jim
