  • LaTeX vs. Word | Irreal
    must be suffering from cognitive dissonance Because after all it couldn t be that LaTeX actually was better for it s users Their other conclusion is that journals at least non mathematical journals should stop accepting LaTeX and insist on Word or PDF This even though they admit that LaTeX is easier for the journals to integrate into their work flow and produces a better product I find their reason for this conclusion particularly offensive Since their study concludes that it takes longer to prepare a document with LaTeX than it does with Word researchers should be forced forced to use a document preparation system other than the one they d like because then they ll have more time to do research and improve the common weal As if researchers were slaves It s a disgraceful argument UPDATE There s an interesting discussion of the paper on the Org Emacs list In particular see the post by Christophe Pouzat He obtained the original data and reanalyzed it His findings are very revealing This entry was posted in General and tagged Bogosity Document preparation Bookmark the permalink A New Emacs Blog Using AUCTeX Piotr Kaźmierczak What I found especially funny infuriating depends on your mood I guess is that the authors sort of suggested that allowing researchers to use TeX instead of MS Word is somehow a waste of tax payers money Hilarious Constantine Kharlamov I m just writing a year project and I found pretty inconvenient to use whatever Office utils I am a Emacs Vim user for writing a bunch of formatted text by the way my institute having a very strict formatting requirements like page numbers in content list margins font and etc I tried LaTeX before and I failed Don t remember exact problems but they were

    system that is well inadequate at best This feels like a common problem in emacs packages on one side people complain when others NIH code on the other the complete lack of reusable properly abstract code basically forces you to NIH I guess the only usable solution would be to have some kind of an overseer with cleanly stated goals apis for reusable components frameworks Sadly emacs devel also turned out to be completely inadequate for this sigh abo abo What s bad about ace jump mode It behaves predictably reliably and never bugs out for me If a shop sells only apples and you want oranges it s not the shop s fault Fuco So you mean to tell me you find all this setq and calling internal hooks of a library acceptable cf https github com abo abo ace window blob master ace window el L205 https github com abo abo ace window blob master ace window el L126 L131 Also the fact that one has to setq some variable set up global state just to execute a synchronous action is just bullshit https github com abo abo ace window blob master ace window el L231 Don t take this harshly I m not blaming you I too tried to use AJM as an API and it is simply bad your code is just a result of that My above comment was basically just frustration over the fact that we just can t get to have some sane standardization in emacs abo abo It s not a synchronous action since the program flow is recovered in a different function that s called from a keymap Anyway the setq s and hooks and globals are acceptable as long as they work This is Elisp not rocket science no need

  • Going to the Top and Bottom of iBuffer | Irreal
    or tail of the list If that seems a little familiar it s probably because Magnar Sveen had similar problem with dired and solved it with a bit of Elisp So I shamelessly ripped off Sveen s code and made a few trivial changes so it does the same thing for iBuffer that Sveen s did for dired If you re having the same problem the code is below It s almost embarrassing to post it because it s such a rip off but Emacsers who don t have the wherewithal to figure out which key map to use or who don t know Elisp may find it useful Stolen from Magnar s code to do the same thing for dired http whattheemacsd com setup dired el 02 html defun ibuffer back to top interactive beginning of buffer next line 3 defun ibuffer jump to bottom interactive end of buffer next line 2 eval after load ibuffer progn define key ibuffer mode map vector remap end of buffer ibuffer jump to bottom define key ibuffer mode map vector remap beginning of buffer ibuffer back to top This entry was posted in General and tagged Emacs Bookmark the permalink Sorting by IP Addresses 2 Quicklisp Client Update Fuco I wrote a couple macros to define these fixed tops bottoms in content buffers https github com Fuco1 emacs d blob master files keys el L299 I ve been planning to turn it into a package for quite some time now so if someone wants to feel free jcs Nice Search for Recent Posts Elisp Summary Emacs for Prose FISA Abandons the Fourth Amendment Again Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola How to Keep Emacs Running Across an X Crash Recent Comments Mike Zamansky on Blogging with Org Mode and Nikola Phil on
