abstract: Een verslag van de dag van het document. Centraal stond
de problematiek: opslag en retrieval van documenten.
Interessant waren het begrip bibliotheek zonder muren, en
de intelligente auteursomgevingen. Het dilemma ten
aaanzien van het centrale theam is: moeten wij alles
bewaren of selecteren en vergeten? Ook het forum kwam hier
niet uit. Er was een beurs met een 20-tal stands.

Molecuul Muis Manuscript (verslag KNCV symposium) (Dutch)

abstract: Op 18 oktober 1991 werd door de sectie
Computertoepassingen van de KNCV (Koninklijke Nederlandse
Chemische Vereniging) een symposium m.b.t. chemische
tekstverwerking georganiseerd. Naast een algemene
introductie over `Electronisch Publiceren', kregen zowel
de Apple Macintosh als MS-DOS geïnteresseerden (chemici)
de huidige mogelijkheden van het verwerken van chemische
teksten voorgeschoteld. Het pakket TeX kwam in een
laatste lezing naar voren. De duidelijk geslaagde dag werd
bezocht door een kleine honderd deelnemers, inclusief een
tiental leveranciers. Vele (leerzame) demonstraties, zowel
tijdens de lezingen, als ook tussen de lezingensessies
door, zorgden mede voor een duidelijk overzicht.

The Components of TeX (English)
MAPS 8, 1992, 81-86
keywords: components of TeX
abstract: TeX needs a great amount of supplementary components
(files and programs) of which the meaning and interaction
often is unknown. This paper explains the components of
the kernel system TeX that are visible for the TeX
user and their relations.

LaTeX Editing support (English)
MAPS 8, 1992, 91-114
keywords: LaTeX, editing, emacs
abstract: The structured markup of LaTeX can be easy to read and
understand, but tedious to type. Its syntax of environment
groups bears a strong resemblance to the begin/end groups
of the Algol family of computer programming languages,
which can be described by rigorous grammars that in turn
permit the automatic construction of lexical analyzers
and parsers, and structured editors to support programming
in those languages. This article describes a powerful
facility for the preparation of LaTeX documents using the
Emacs text editor.

Prolegomena toward a font selection scheme (English)
MAPS 8, 1992, 115-116
abstract: Most users of plain TeX do not get very sophisticated
in their use of fonts. Often they resort to declaring all
used fonts explicitly with \font. There are some
obvious disadvantages to that: it is not possible to
switch a whole document in a simple way to a different
typeface, or to a different size. As a result, I've seen
such phenomena as an article with an abstract in 8 or 9
point, but where the formulas were still in 10 point, or
pages of `magnified' type where the lines were cramped,
because the \baselineskip was not increased with the
type size. The need for a good font selection scheme is
thus quite obvious, but the implementation of one is
not.

From observation to publication (English)
MAPS 8, 1992, 117-120
abstract: This article describes the use of TeX in publishing
observations of variable stars observed by Dutch
amateur-astronomers. The observations are published in the
journal `Variabilia' and in the so-called Reports. In the
latter the observations, collected in several years, are
published and submitted to the professional astronomer. It
includes tables and light-curves: plot of the changing
magnitude of the star versus time. In creating the
light-curves: PICTeX is used. In preparing the files for
PICTeX simple TeX-coding is used for manipulating the
data.

FIFO and LIFO incognito (English)
MAPS 8, 1992, 121-124
keywords: FIFO, LIFO
abstract: FIFO, first-in-first-out, and LIFO, last-in-last-out, are
well-known techniques for handling sequences. In TeX
macro writing they are abundant but are not easily
recognized as such. TeX templates for FIFO and LIFO are
given and their use is illustrated.

just plain TeX. There is no restriction on the number of
disks, apart from the installed limits of TeX.
Generalized disks can be moved as well.

abstract: A macro is provided for typesetting crosswords via (plain)
TeX, or any TeX, which allows \halign use. The
specification of the crossword information can be done in
the WYSIWYG way, and does not require \halign markup,
just the data.
