latex: missing constantweb.sty


Hello,

I would like to compile a TeX document with latex, and likely texlive misses constantweb.sty. It is about mathematics.

Would you eventually know where one could find it?

thank you in advance

that's not an authentic latex file - latex does NOT depend on that file

"constant web" could be a file in some math package add-on for latex (check the American Math Society for typical latex or tex ad-ons) - if so make sure your latex has all add-ons that your math program wishes. but does it phone home? who is it constant connected to and do you want that? or does it get constants off the web (possibly incorrect or not up and running?)

what mathematic program needs it? i'm sure their distribution of the product has constantweb.sty if it's unusual and it's needed

TeX is not good math support - it was never meant to mark up math the way today's math programs can (ie, not quickly, not without allot of hand tweaking per equation). WebML is better and is meant to show allot of what today's math progams might output as an equation on the screen.

if you succeed in what your doing you might not like it: you may not get imported or exported TeX into your application the way you hoped, and it may not look anything as good (or even readable) as you hoped to print it.

another alternative to text and plotting in linux (which axiom, octave, and other freewares use): gnuplot (newer versions if one has time for syntax can do some impressive plotting even without using a math program)

Well, for maths, it may be of particular interest, very sometimes:

Thanks
