* Did you select a task from our list of proposals and ideas? No
** If you apply for a task you have added yourself instead, please describe this task, its scope and people you already talked to concerning it. What field of tasks did you miss on the list? I haven't talked to anyone yet. My idea is to create some kind of parser for octave to be able to read Latex code. In example I would like to write the code '\int_{0}^{2\pi}cos(x)dx' which means integral of cos(x) from 0 to 2pi and to be able to get an answer from Octave, in this example I would get 0. Another example would be giving Octave the code '\frac{1}{2}' and getting 0.5
 * Implementation: The idea would be to implement a function in Octave that would parse a latex string and would output the evaluation result. Also if something like 'A = \begin{bmatrix} 2 & 3 & 4\\ 1 & 2 & 3 \end{bmatrix}' is given, it would assign the matrix to the variable A. * Please provide a rough estimated timeline for your work on the task. I donthink this project isn't know how a too difficult to do so I could have it finished before the timeline so on the rest of the summer I could help with other developement tasks. The developement could be divided in three phases: ** Basic operations: giving the software the ability to evaluate simple maths expressions like sums, multiplications, divisions, powers, etc... and assign them to variables. This could be done in a few weeks** More complex operations: operations like integrals, derivatives, matrices... This would be harder to do cause depending on the operation I would have to look for Octave functions that could do what I want, so this developement stage could last from 1-2 months** Ending the project : The final stage would be, to test intensively all Latex options and make sure everything works fine. Documentation would be done in this stage. When everything is finished on this project I know is that would help on other developement tasks till the end of the summer. * I won''t be able to work too much on June since my final exams are that month.
