LuaTeX: Manipulating UTF-8 text using Lua

Posted on July 8, 2014 by Some TeX Developments Feed

Both the XeTeX and LuaTeX engines are natively UTF-8, which makes input of non-ASCII text a lot easier than with pdfTeX (certainly for the programmer: inputenc hides a lot of complexity for the end user!). With LuaTeX, there is the potential to script in Lua as well as program in TeX macros, and that of […]

Collection abrégée avec shortseries : simplification

Posted on July 8, 2014 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

J'avais publié, il y a près de deux ans, un tutoriel sur la manière de gérer les versions abrégée des collections. La version 2.9 de BibLaTeX permet de gérer cela de manière plus simple.

Par défaut, c'est le champ series qui est imprimé. Ce tutoriel propose : d'expliquer comment afficher le champ shortseries à la place de series. d'expliquer comment (...) - BibLaTeX

J'avais proposé plusieurs articles expliquant comment : gérer les sources anonymes. mettre les œuvres anonymes en premier. référencer une œuvre éditée dans un article Pour simplifier l'utilisation de de ces fonctionnalités, j'en ai créé deux packages.

Seit ein paar Wochen Schrägstrich Monaten arbeite ich an einem Paket, das chemfig als backend verwendet und es ermöglicht, mit einer simplen und flexiblen Eingabemethode Kohlenhydrate auszugeben.

Charger plusieurs modèles de données : le package biblatex-multiple-dm

Posted on June 24, 2014 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

Dans deux précédents articles, je proposais des champs et types supplémentaires, pour gérer respectivement les manuscrits et les auteurs réels. Pour pouvoir utiliser ces champs, il faut utiliser les styles bibliographiques respectifs manuscripts ou realauthor, qui se basent sur le style bibliographique verbose. Mais comment faire si l'on souhaite à la fois gérer des manuscrits et des auteurs réels ? Ou si on souhaite utiliser ces fonctionnalités mais charger un autre style ? Il n'est pas possible (...) - BibLaTeX

Indiquer l'auteur réel d'un ouvrage

Posted on June 24, 2014 by Geekographie Maïeulesque Feed

Il peut arriver qu'un livre soit publié sous un nom qui ne correspond pas à son auteur. Il est fréquent alors d'indiquer l'auteur réel entre crochets. Comment peut-on gérer cela avec BibLaTeX ? Une solution consiste à utiliser un champs namea, que l'on peut utiliser pour l'usage qui nous convient. Cependant une telle solution est problématique, dans la mesure où un telle champ est sémantiquement neutre, et qu'il peut donc y avoir des risques de confusion. C'est pourquoi j'ai développé un module BibLaTeX (...) - BibLaTeX

Big O and related notations in LaTeX

Posted on June 24, 2014 by Blog on Latex Matters Feed

The big O, big theta, and other notations form the family of Bachmann-Landau or asymptotic notations. These notations describe the limiting behavior of a function in mathematics or classify algorithms in computer science according to their complexity / processing time. In this post, I’m not so much interested in the definition of these notations, but rather in ...
