Previously on the mailing list someone mentioned aamath[a] to render
formulae:

A_OPR = x*sqrt(x^2-1)/2 - int(sqrt(t^2-1), 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/dot-to-ascii
