has anyone thought of / worked on writing / does such thing exist, some
sort of command-line version of 'the comprehenive latex symbol list' by
Scott Pakin? such that in some shell, you could do something greppish
like:
[ user at computer.org ]% latex-apropos 'integral|loop'
found matches:
command symbol package
\int integral ?
\iint another integral AMS variable-sized math operators
\oint closed loop integral wasysym variable-sized math operators
... and perhaps it could print out a plain-text image of the desired
symbol optional, e.g. `latex-apropos "integral" --show-image`
