The iMath extension for intelligent formulas enables numeric and symbolic calculations inside a Writer document. The development of iMath was prompted by a problem which I often encountered doing calculations in my profession as a mechanical engineer. I would first begin writing out the problem on paper, putting together the necessary equations, and then turn to a spreadsheet to do the actual calculations. iMath is meant to integrate this process in a single Writer document.
iMath makes use of the EQC library . Linux users will have to install this first. Windows users might need to install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package (search for "vcredist" on the Microsoft website). Please make sure to choose matching versions according to the info below!
Known working configurations are:
iMath 2.0.3 on Windows XP 2003 with OpenOffice 4.0
iMath 2.0.3 on Ubuntu 12.04 32bit with OpenOffice 4.0 and libeqc-1.4.10
iMath 1.1.0 on Windows 7 with OpenOffice 3.2.1
iMath 1.1.0 on Windows XP 2003 with OpenOffice 3.2
Other and better tested versions are currently only available for LibreOffice, see the sourceforge download page.
