Latest release

v.5.1.0 (2022-11-13): Libris: Implied Multiplication, Unicode Math Symbols, Additional Probability Distributions, Calculation Steps Register, Serialization Support


The tutorial consists of c.a. 180 live examples from c.a. 40 sections. Each of the examples can be copied and run on your own environment. In addition, mXparser provides an extensive collection of over 500 built-in math functions, expressions and symbols. Familiarize yourself with the scope and the syntax. Live testing is the best way to learn. Good luck!
