    Can we display an integral sign with a square contour over it. The command is:

    \sqint

    I think it's in the pxfonts package.

    Thanks,
    Salty

    [tex] \int \! \! \! \! \! \! \square [/tex]

    This what you're looking for?

    that has six exclamation points. I am curious to see what it is like with just 3

    [tex] \int \! \! \! \square [/tex]

    with four
    [tex] \int \! \! \! \! \square [/tex]

    and with five
    [tex] \int \! \! \! \! \! \square [/tex]

    OK :smile:

    Can we do animation with Latex? Transit of the square over the integral sign, or simple harmonic motion of the square. Btw, do we put a negative ! for the square to go on the other side? o:)

    [tex]\int \-! \-! \-! \-! \-! \square [/tex]

    EDIT: So that's what it looks like with a minus sign! :biggrin:
