;;; Commentary:

;; erc-tex is a tiny ERC module which render LaTeX mathematical expressions
;; in your ERC chats. You will need both latex and dvipng in order to use this
;; module.
;; Once erc-tex is avalaible for your Emacs, you can use `erc-tex-mode' to
;; toggle the module. This will render the text between $...$ as a LaTeX
;; expression. Indeed, you can use `erc-tex-image-edit', bound to `RET' on TeX
;; formulas to edit the TeX code in the prompt and resend the image.

;;; TODO:
;;    - Highlight the formulas according to ERC faces as erc-track.
