MAXIMA can be told to render its output equations and formulas into code suitable to be printed on a laser printer. Either troff or TeX/LaTeX code can be generated.

MAXIMA can produce typesetting scripts for LaTeX to be included in your LaTeX documents. It is very easy to use. The following is a simple example.

The output can be put in a latex document. It is also possible to direct the generated LaTeX codes into a file. Simply do latex(exp, "file.tex"); in Maxima .(C2) expand( (2*x^2+4*x-5)^2 ); 4 3 2 (D2) 4 X + 16 X - 4 X - 40 X + 25 (C3) latex(d2);

$$4\>X^{4}+16\>X^{3}-4\>X^{2}-40\>X+25$$

Very few people use triff these days. But if you happen to need it, do mhelp typeset for more info.
