There's also latex2png, a shell-script which generates a cropped png
image from a latex file, and comes as part of latex2rft. I suspect there
is something equivalent in latex2html.

In all these cases, you'll need to autogenerate a latex document from
the driver (C) code or whatever, then run an external script/program to
generate the graphics, then import the result into your display modules,
I guess.
