Hi. Sorry if this isn't the right to place to ask this, but I haven't found any other forum where I could try to get some help with Mathematical notation (Asciimath).

I want to know if it is possible to show a curved arrow pointing right over some letters. Something like [overset(frown)(AB)], but with an arrow instead. Can you guys help me? Or send me to where I could try to understand this a little bit better?

I've tried using the LaTeX notation "\curvearrowright" but it doesn't works. :/

Thanks a lot,

It depends probably somewhat on your environment and the version of ASCIIMath that you are using. Are you using ASCIIMath with MathJax or KaTeX? Or for some other arrangement? If you are using MathJax via CDN, you can't really do what I explain below, but you could ask them to add the lines to their ASCIIMath version.

curvearrowright was not in the original ASCIIMath as far as I could see. I added the following lines to my version of it (below the existing arrows lines, which is around line 250 for my version) just now:

What this does is to tell ASCIIMath to output the appropriate Unicode symbol when it comes across the "input" codes (which I made up - you could use whatever you want. I first tried more symbolic things like o->, but that just confused the output).

(If the above doesn't appear to work, refresh the page - your cache may have the old ASCIIMath version.)

Hi Aleixo
Sure - you can ask about ASCIIMath here.

<code>curvearrowright</code> was not in the original ASCIIMath as far as I could see. I added the following lines to my version of it (below the existing arrows lines, which is around line 250 for my version) just now:
<code>{input:"curvArrLt", tag:"mo", output:"\u21B6", tex:"curvearrowleft", ttype:CONST},
{input:"curvArrRt", tag:"mo", output:"\u21B7", tex:"curvearrowright", ttype:CONST},
{input:"circArrLt", tag:"mo", output:"\u21BA", tex:"circlearrowleft", ttype:CONST},
{input:"circArrRt", tag:"mo", output:"\u21BB", tex:"circlearrowright", ttype:CONST},</code>
What this does is to tell ASCIIMath to output the appropriate Unicode symbol when it comes across the "input" codes (which I made up - you could use whatever you want. I first tried more symbolic things like <code>o-></code>, but that just confused the output).
Does it work? Yep - here's how it looks:
Input: <code>`curvArrLt`</code> Output: `curvArrLt`
Input: <code>`curvArrRt`</code> Output: `curvArrRt`
Input: <code>`circArrLt`</code> Output: `circArrLt`
Input: <code>`circArrLt`</code> Output: `circArrLt`
(If the above doesn't appear to work, refresh the page - your cache may have the old ASCIIMath version.)

Oops - I jut re-read your post and realised this doesn't address your "over some letters" part.
<code>stackrel</code> does it:
Input <code>`stackrel(curvArrLt)(abc)`</code> Output: `stackrel(curvArrLt)(abc)`
