Great ! The new tm_axiom works perfectly, now. However, the Jenks integration
example does not appear correctly : the big left parenthesis is not a \left(
but an
ordinary (, the same for the right parenthesis. Moreover, the third line
disappears. I
have pasted the input in tm-axiom.exe in a cmd.exe command window, and then the
\left( and \right) appear correctly, and the whole LaTeX formula is correct (in
particular
the third line is also present). So it seems to be a bug in the LaTeX import
module of
TeXmacs, as you already pointed a few days ago to Andrey Grozin.

I tried also with the same input but with power -1/3 instead of 1/3, and the
result
appears to have big left and right parentheses, but the first two lines are
incorrect. So
the error seems not to be localized to the treatment of \left( and \right).

On the other hand, the output of the cygwin tm_axiom is correct, although on a
single
line. So I think that the only solution for users, for the Windows version of
Axiom, would
be to include the cygwin tm_axiom, until Andrey or Joris provide a corrected
import
module of LaTeX arrays in TeXmacs ?

And congratulations for the great work !

Best wishes,
