Publisher's Description

Constantly-updated implementation of TeX and LaTeX, great for mathematics and formulae:

MiKTeX (pronounced mick-tech) is an up-to-date implementation of TeX/LaTeX and related programs for Windows (all current variants).

TeX is a typesetting system written by Donald Ervin Knuth who says that it is "intended for the creation of beautiful books - and especially for books that contain a lot of mathematics".

A complete set of additions (programs, styles, fonts, etc) are available to help you typeset your documents.

The TeX output viewer Yap allows for an optimized edit-compile-view cycle (if the TeX authoring system in use supports source specials).

MiKTeX can open DOC and DOCX files, open LaTeX documents and edit LaTeX documents.

  • Native Windows implementation with support for long file names
  • On-the-fly generation of missing fonts
