Re: What is appropriate???

Isn't WinEdt used for Latex? My first query was about
Protext which I hope qualifies for the relevance
criterion? 

About the Sty files, since I am learning I am not sure
how clearly divided a lot of the issues are. 

I am sure if I put a question on your suggested sites,
about where STY files go in the WinEdt then there will
be someone there too, who will ask me to go to a group
which deals with WinEdt!

Anyway I suggest that there needs to be a group for
Newbies to help them with the initial teething
problems 
with both WinEdt and Latex IF this group has a
problem. Perhaps there already is such a group so if
you can point me in the direction I can make my way
there..

Thanks to everyone for the "kick start" with Protext
suggestion. 

Peace!

While LaTeX editing is by far the most common use of WinEdt, WinEdt 
itself is nothing more than a text editor. You can use it to write 
computer programs, text files, and anything else you might use a text 
editor for. For that matter, any text editor may be used for LaTeX -- 
even Notepad, Wordpad, and Microsoft Word.

In general the issues are very clearly divided. Basically, if you can 
find it in a LaTeX book or tutorial, it has nothing to do with WinEdt. 
Since .sty files are a critical part of LaTeX, you will find them in 
LaTeX books and tutorials. Using this rule of thumb you would correctly 
deduce that they have nothing to do with WinEdt.

WinEdt can call LaTeX for you, but beyond that, there is no interaction 
between the two programs.

Since .sty files are part of LaTeX, there is nowhere to put them in 
WinEdt. On the other hand, it is critical that LaTeX knows where the

Re: Problem with package installation

Sorry, for this MikTeX discussion but I disagree with the statement that  
handling packages yourself:

Depends, as for example in the current release any requested package that  
is in the database is downloaded and installed automagically. For example  
my thesis which uses a lot of packages was running within 5 minutes which  
manually would have required some time.

Furthermore, exotic packages like for instance psfrag require to install  
files at strange places and even replace files of the current  
installation. This is also done by MikTeX.

Maybe you are not aware of the capabilities?

All the best,
Lasse

RE: Problem with package installation

I guess you are right.  But it seems pretty easy to download a package into
the local texmf following the proper directory structure then install or
rehash the filename database.  It takes less time for me to do it that way
than to locate a file in the package manager, install it, rehash...

Thanks!

David

RegEx oddity

Hi Alex,

there's a strange behaviour with this regular expression:

S: *\(?\)>
R: \0>

If you run this on the following lines, the tag \0 will contain the 
match from the respective next line:

xa
xb
xc

so that the result is:

b
c
xc

A work-around is to include the beginning of the line in the search
( <*\(?\)> ), however, it seems to me that something's wrong with the 
regular expression.

Best regards,
Robert.

Does that mean the "ghost" indicating the current line will be cast out?
That would be a pity.
