I would like to have the Latex mathematical symbols available as a vector-font (say TrueType), together with a mapping from Latex symbol-names to code-points in the font. How can I achieve this?
For my research, I need access to high-quality images of all Latex (mathematical) symbols. I have set up a tool-chain which provides me these images; Symbol-to-PDF by pdflatex -> PDF-to-PNG by GhostScript -> PNG-to-cropped-PNG by NConvert. I use these images in my software.
However, this is somewhat backwards, since many of the symbols in Latex are defined as vector-shapes. If I had direct access to these vector-shapes, I could have less of memory foot-print and also draw the symbols at an arbitrary resolution.
