I want to recognize that two different LaTeX strings have the same meaning.

Does myscript have this feature

can I compare multiple LaTeX strings for meaning equality?

I want to recognize that two different LaTeX strings have the same meaning.


For example

\frac{e+1}{4} is right answer.

\frac{1+e}{4} which is also right answer in meaning.

Dear Toru Kuniyoshi,


Thank you for your question.


MyScript iink performs ink recognition. So for instance, it allows you to convert your ink into LaTeX output for Math part.


But checking that \frac{e+1}{4} and \frac{1+e}{4} are both equivalent is out of MyScript scope. So for comparing multiple LaTeX strings, you have to implement your own solution.
