                                   (not useful for cMML or openmath)
        --preload=file             loads a style file.
        --includestyles            allows processing raw *.sty files
                                   (normally it avoids this)
        --path=dir                 adds a search path for style files.
        --quiet                    reduces verbosity (can repeat)
        --verbose                  increases verbosity (can repeat)
        --strict                   be more strict about errors.
        --documentid=id            assign an id to the document root.
        --debug=package            enables debugging output for the
                                   named package
        --VERSION                  show version number and exit.
        --help                     shows this help message.
        --                         ends options

       If texmath is '-', "latexmlmath" reads the TeX from standard input.  If any of the output
       files are '-', the result is printed on standard output.

   Input notes
       Note that, unless you are reading texmath from standard input, the texmath string will be
       processed by whatever shell you are using before "latexmlmath" even sees it.  This means
       that many so-called meta characters, such as backslash and star,  may confuse the shell or
       be changed.  Consequently, you will need to quote and/or slashify the input appropriately.
       Most particularly, "\" will need to be doubled to "\\" for "latexmlmath" to see it as a
       control sequence.

       Using "--" to explicitly end the option list is useful for cases when the math starts with
       a minus (and would otherwise be interpreted as an option, probably an unrecognized one).
       Alternatively, wrapping the texmath with {} will hide the minus.

       Simple examples:

         latexmlmath \\frac{-b\\pm\\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}
         echo "\\sqrt{b^2-4ac}" | latexmlmath --pmml=quad.mml -

OPTIONS AND ARGUMENTS

   Conversion Options
       These options specify what formats the math should be converted to.  In each case, the
       destination file is given.  Except for mathimage, the file can be given as '-', in which
       case the result is printed to standard output.

       If no conversion option is specified, the default is to output presentation MathML to
       standard output.

       "--mathimage"=file
           Requests conversion to png images.

       "--mathsvg"=file
           Requests conversion to svg images.

       "--magnification="factor
           Specifies the magnification used for math image. Default is 1.75.

       "--presentationmathml"=file
           Requests conversion to Presentation MathML.

       "--linelength"=number
           (Experimental) Line-breaks the generated Presentation MathML so that it is no longer
           than number `characters'.

       "--plane1"
           Converts the content of Presentation MathML token elements to the appropriate Unicode
           Plane-1 codepoints according to the selected font, when applicable.

       "--hackplane1"
           Converts the content of Presentation MathML token elements to the appropriate Unicode
           Plane-1 codepoints according to the selected font, but only for the mathvariants
           double-struck, fraktur and script.  This gives support for current (as of August 2009)
           versions of Firefox and MathPlayer, provided a sufficient set of fonts is available
           (eg. STIX).

       "--contentmathml"=file
           Requests conversion to Content MathML.  Note that this conversion is only partially
           implemented.

       "--openmath"=file
           Requests conversion to OpenMath.  Note that this conversion is only partially
           implemented.

       "--XMath"=file
           Requests convertion to LaTeXML's internal format.

Other Options

       "--preload"=module
           Requests the loading of an optional module or package.  This may be useful if the TeX
           code does not specificly require the module (eg. through input or usepackage).  For
           example, use "--preload=LaTeX.pool" to force LaTeX mode.

       "--includestyles"
           This optional allows processing of style files (files with extensions "sty", "cls",
           "clo", "cnf").  By default, these files are ignored  unless a latexml implementation
           of them is found (with an extension of "ltxml").

           These style files generally fall into two classes:  Those that merely affect document
           style are ignorable in the XML.  Others define new markup and document structure,
           often using deeper LaTeX macros to achieve their ends.  Although the omission will
           lead to other errors (missing macro definitions), it is unlikely that processing the
           TeX code in the style file will lead to a correct document.

       "--path"=dir
           Add dir to the search paths used when searching for files, modules, style files, etc;
           somewhat like TEXINPUTS.  This option can be repeated.

       "--documentid"=id
           Assigns an ID to the root element of the XML document.  This ID is generally inherited
           as the prefix of ID's on all other elements within the document.  This is useful when
           constructing a site of multiple documents so that all nodes have unique IDs.

       "--quiet"
           Reduces the verbosity of output during processing, used twice is pretty silent.

       "--verbose"
           Increases the verbosity of output during processing, used twice is pretty chatty.  Can
           be useful for getting more details when errors occur.

       "--strict"
           Specifies a strict processing mode. By default, undefined control sequences and
           invalid document constructs (that violate the DTD) give warning messages, but attempt
           to continue processing.  Using --strict makes them generate fatal errors.

       "--VERSION"
           Shows the version number of the LaTeXML package..

       "--debug"=package
           Enables debugging output for the named package. The package is given without the
           leading LaTeXML::.

       "--help"
           Shows this help message.

BUGS

       This program runs much slower than would seem justified.  This is a result of the
       relatively slow initialization including loading TeX and LaTeX macros and the schema.
       Normally, this cost would be ammortized over large documents, whereas, in this case, we're
       processing a single math expression.
