I found a big list of symbols and the source here. I would like to simply do this: place each command on a new line, and evaluate the command in the first column, and print the command in the second column. Like this:

α \A
β \B

I just made those commands up, but essentially that. Print the output next to the command.


\A --- \begin{verbatim} A \end{verbatim}

\aa --- \begin{verbatim} aa \end{verbatim}

\AA --- \begin{verbatim} AA \end{verbatim}

\AAaleph --- \begin{verbatim} AAaleph \end{verbatim}

\AAayin --- \begin{verbatim} AAayin \end{verbatim}

\AAbeth --- \begin{verbatim} AAbeth \end{verbatim}

\AAcht --- \begin{verbatim} AAcht \end{verbatim}

\AAdaleth --- \begin{verbatim} AAdaleth \end{verbatim}

\AAhe --- \begin{verbatim} AAhe \end{verbatim}

\AAhelmet --- \begin{verbatim} AAhelmet \end{verbatim}

\AAheth --- \begin{verbatim} AAheth \end{verbatim}

\AAkaph --- \begin{verbatim} AAkaph \end{verbatim}

\AAlamed --- \begin{verbatim} AAlamed \end{verbatim}

\Aaleph --- \begin{verbatim} Aaleph \end{verbatim}

\AApe --- \begin{verbatim} AApe \end{verbatim}

\AAqoph --- \begin{verbatim} AAqoph \end{verbatim}

\AAresh --- \begin{verbatim} AAresh \end{verbatim}

\AAsade --- \begin{verbatim} AAsade \end{verbatim}

\Aayin --- \begin{verbatim} Aayin \end{verbatim}

\AAyod --- \begin{verbatim} AAyod \end{verbatim}

\AB --- \begin{verbatim} AB \end{verbatim}

\Abeth --- \begin{verbatim} Abeth \end{verbatim}

\ac --- \begin{verbatim} ac \end{verbatim}

\AC --- \begin{verbatim} AC \end{verbatim}

But it didn't work.

It would also be interesting to know, perhaps preferable, to log the output to the console as it is compiling. Wondering how to do that.

I'm not sure I understand the question but this makes a log of

\alpha: \mathchar"10B
\beta: \mathchar"10C
\longrightarrow: \long macro:->\DOTSB \protect \relbar \protect \joinrel \right

and output

enter image description here


\typeout{\string#1: \meaning#1}%


  • I want the log output to be exactly this: α \alpha, not \alpha: \mathchar"10B.

  • This isn't working \def\zz#1{\typeout{\string#1: #1}\texttt{\string#1}:$#1$}. It shows \alpha:\alpha not \alpha:α.

  • @LancePollard but if you are using pdflatex to typeset the results there is no unicode definitions involved most of the command differences in the comprehensive symbol document relate to font changes not unicode slots. Jun 16, 2019 at 18:26

    @LancePollard If you are just looking for a mapping between unicode slots and tex names look in unicode-math's unicode-math-table.tex but we had this conversation before tex.stackexchange.com/questions/494340/… Jun 16, 2019 at 18:28
