Mavscript allows the user to do calculations in a text document. Plain text and OpenOffice Writer files (odt/sxw) are supported. The calculation is done by the algebra system Yacas or by the Java interpreter BeanShell.
Syntax highlighting was implemented for Mavscript templates in Notepad++, in addition to the editors Kwrite and Jedit. MS-Word *.docx files are automatically recognized.
