[Axiom-developer] Axiom breaks lines

I have added Robert Sutor's LaTeX line break program to the Axiom wiki

Axiom commands can sometimes generate long lines of LaTeX. If these long
lines are rendered on the web page the result is that the image is truncated
on the right. A program written in "C" long ago by Robert Sutor was used in
the preparation of the examples shown in the original Axiom Book to
automatically break the long LaTeX lines generated by Axiom the ")set output
tex on" command. This program has now been incorporated into the Axiom wiki
interface so that Axiom output is no longer truncated on the right.

Because I wanted this to be as efficient as possible, I took the time to
learn how to call "C" language routines directly from Python. There is a
tool called swig that makes this quite easy!

The updated Axiom interface is now available for testing on This new version of the Axiom interface as
well as the new Reduce interface will be migrated to the main Axiom portal
and to the MathAction wiki sometime next week. In the mean time, it would be
great if you could test it here and report any problems.
