TeX input mode [Oct. 16th, 2012|11:35 pm]

I've often wished for an easier way to enter unicode math symbols, for example by typing the LaTeX code. Instead the only way I know is to google for the symbol, which has got to be most complicated way of entering a symbol.

But I just found out that EMACS has a "TeX input mode", where you just type TeX symbols and they magically turn into unicode symbols.

For example, if you type

     \forall x \in R, x^2 \geq 0

you get

     ∀ x ∈ R, x² ≥ 0

Awesome! If only I could get this input mode system-wide.

Invoke it with M-x set-input-method and then TeX. I found out about this via this stackoverflow answer.
