You must mean LaTeX. There is no problem with this in Plain TeX.

Dear Christopher Heckman,

i have been reading the miktex mailing list for quite a while. May be it
has been a realm of politeness and lack of rudeness. Writing this i will
directly add that i have been very much surprised by the change of tone
you have added recently to this list. I have been using tex for more
than 15 years writing my larger and smaller documents. I have not
acquired a deep knowledge of tex by itself, since i have no time for
that. I have, however, acquired a knowledge of using a couple of macro
packages for adding features to documents which were otherwise out of
reach.

I am quite sure that i am not alone with this practical use of tex.
Obviously you have had enough time to learn tex from the start. I envy
this. I regret, however, that you have found that plain tex is so
superior to latex that you have to tell of its superiority to everybody
else. It would be a pleasure to get this information in a kind manner,
but

"This is a LaTeX question; I wouldn't touch it with a 10-foot pole." as
you write and other sentences in your recent contributions to the list
suggest that you have become a warrior for the purity of tex. In a way
you are going to be a fundamentalist.

It took me some time to write this mail in a friendly manner. May be you
can cope with that and refrain from aggressiveness toward humbly latex
users in the time to be.

happy texing

### : Alignment of motivations in equations

Hello!

In some of my mathematical work, I need to have multi-line equations. I
find it easiest to put the reasons for each step on the same line, like
this:

Equation  = Equation          (Reason)
= Long Equation  (Reason)
= Short                (Reason)

I need the reasons to be (left or right) aligned in a column of their
own. This is impossible to do in the eqnarray environment, as neither &
nor \hfill works. The best I can do at the moment is to use \qquad
(Reason), to get a decent gap between the math and the text.

I've also tried the array environment, but then the math doesn't display
as well, and the spacing (especially around the =) is incorrect.

Can anybody help me, or point me to a reference? I have Leslie Lamport's
book on LaTeX, and the Not-so-short Guide, but they are of no use in
this problem.

Best regards

Alet

### Re: : strange problem for "array" under "equation" enviro nment

Since it obviously caught Fangyin out and maybe others too, it's perhaps worth underlining:

LaTaX does NOT accept EMPTY LINES in math evironments.

This was the only problem with the scripts sent.

Cheers,  Philip Ratcliffe

P.S.  Replying with "e <CR>" to the LaTeX error message gets back the erroneous line (or what LaTeX thinks it is) in your editor - this often helps pinpoint the actual error - in this case it pinpoints precisely the empty line (because the implicit \par ends the math environment).

TeXnicCenter is *completely* free. It's still a Beta but it's working
pretty nicely already. It's only going to get better!

### page numbering

> Dear all,

I would like to have the following page numbering format in a tex
document.

in the center of the foot of the page:  "page y of x", where x is the
total number of pages. This is something similar to word (...I do not
really like saying this word!!!). Is it possible?

Thanks,

Argyris

Maybe alt.misc.abuse.LaTeX would be a better place to discuss this...

I fully agree with Bernhard Kleine and appreciate his opinion.

However ignoring may be the best way to deal with abuse. (I am not following my own advice  )

### Re: Alignment of motivations in equations

Hello Alet,

in the amsmath package there are several alternative alignement possibilities.

\begin{alignat}{2}
Equation & = & Equation          & (Reason) \\
& = & Long Equation     & (Reason) \\
& = & Short             & (Reason)
\end{alignat}

should do. For other output try xalignat and xxalignat.

All the best,

Lasse
