Previously on the mailing list someone mentioned aamath[a] to render
formulae:
A_OPR = x*sqrt(x^21)/2  int(sqrt(t^21), t = 1 .. x)
will turn into:
x
______ /
/ 2  ______
x \/ x  1  / 2
A =    \/ t  1 dt
OPR 2 

/
1
For diagrams, I'm sure if you could convert it to dot language[b] (more
common than one might think, lots of software supports it) then it'd be
trivial to convert it to ascii, here's a utility I found after a quick
search: https://github.com/ggerganov/dottoascii
