Any software to convert math expressions to simple text format

I am looking for a software to convert mathematical expressions from a neat math like representation to a simple text representation.
. 2 .. 2
x + y
-------- should be converted to (x^2 + y^2) / 2*x

Please ignore the dots here. It is x squared + y squared divided by 2x. Is there any software to do this conversion for all types of math expressions including integrals and derivatives etc.?

You mean like $\dfrac{x^2 + y^2}{2x}.$

One such piece of software is LaTeX, which is supported on this site.

But that is not plain text. So I am not sure whether I am even addressing your question.

I think musigma is asking for software that would accept, or read in some way, "$\displaystyle \frac{x^2+ y^2}{2x}$" and output "(x^2+ y^2)/2x". I can't imagine there would be any use for software that would go in that direction.

@Country Boy: The form of input expression that both of you have mentioned is correct. That is the requirement. I exactly do not know how my program can read such neatly formatted expressions. I have it in PDF, Word documents and HTML files. Should I convert Word, PDF documents or HTML files to some other format before I can read these expressions in them.?
