TextMate (English)
MAPS 46, 2015, 8-12
abstract: When editing text or code on a Mac, TextMate is an
excellent choice. It offers an abundance of features
which makes it a great editor for TeX as well as the
macro-packages LaTeX and ConTeXt. Editing HTML, XML and
CSS is also supported, as are many other programming
languages. Specially tagged texts are quick and easy to
write, thanks to autocompletion and placing of start-
and end-tags. Further the editor supports projects
— a sidebar to the editing window that shows
files belonging to the project. Another useful feature
is the column selection method and the (near) end of line
selection. TextMate offers a clipboard history, so multiple
items can be retrieved. TextMate can be customized to a
very large extent.

TeX/works (Dutch)
MAPS 46, 2015, 13-15
keywords: Editor, Synctex, scripts
abstract: Van de vele beschikbare TeX- (LaTeX-, ConTeXt) editors is
TeXworks een vrij nieuwe. Hij munt uit door zijn eenvoud
in de gebruikersinterface, de koppeling tussen brontekst en
pdf-resultaat en door een grote mate van flexibiliteit. Met
behulp van scripts kan men in principe iedere gewenste
optie zelf toevoegen.

MAPS 46, 2015, 16-22
abstract: TeXStudio is de primaire LaTeX editor bij de TeXLive
installatie van onze universiteit. In dit stuk wil ik
laten zien waarom ik voor deze editor heb gekozen en waarom
TeXStudio interessant kan zijn speciaal voor de beginnende
LaTeX-gebruiker en voor een LaTeX-cursus.

keywords: Apollonius, Bluebook.eps, Cantor, CD-DVD label, Deubert, Escher, flowcharts, fractals, Gabo, Julia, Koch, Lancaster, Lauwerier, length Bézier curve, Lévy, Lindenmayer, Mandelbrot, Mondriaan, Op Art, orthogonal circles, Photoshop, pie chart, pi decimals, PostScript, projection, PSlib.eps, Pythagoras Tree, smiley, Soto, stars, (plain) TeX, text along path, tiling, toroid, SoC (Separation of Concerns), Schrofer, Vasarely. Yin Yang
abstract: A selection of PostScript definitions collected in my
PSlib.eps library and documented as e-book
catalogue is presented. Now and then variant pictures
have been included from pic.dat which comes
with Blue.tex. Old Metafont codes have been
included which may be useful for MetaPost programmers.
Variants of pictures enriched by postprocessing in
Photoshop show other possibilities. Escher's doughnut
is a teaser which has to be done in MetaPost. Next to
PSlib.eps comes the file PDFsfromPSlib,
which contains the pictures in .pdf format.
The complete PSlib.eps, PDFsfromPSlib
as well as the catalogue as e-book, will be released on
occasion of NTG's 25th lustrum which will be celebrated in
the fall of 2014, on www.ntg.nl. A prerelease
will be offered to the GUST's file server. The (static)
library for TeX alone pictures, pic.dat, packaged
with Blue.tex, will be redistributed as well.

keywords: Acrobat Pro, Adobe, art, BLUe, Cardioid, ConTeXt, Cornu, EPSF, Escher, FIFO, folium Descartes, function-grapher previewer, Gyre-logo, hidden lines, IDE (Integrated Development Environment), Jackowski, Lauwerier, Lemniscate, LIFO, Limaçon, Mathematica, MetaPost, Metafont, minimal encapsulated PostScript, minimal mark-up, minimal plain TeX, Photoshop, polar coordinates, projection, PSlib, PSTricks, PSView, rotation of US, Ryćko, Spirals, spherical spiral, TeXworks, Voss.
abstract: Curves specified in Polar Coordinates can be elegantly
programmed in PostScript with the rotate command; which
performs rotations in User Space. This has been shown
for the Cardioid, the Limaçon, the Lemniscate, the
Archimedes and the Growth spiral. The Gyre-logo has been
analyzed and imitated in PostScript. Printing of text
along spiral-like belts on a sphere in the projection
plane has been done, yielding poor man's typesetting text
on a sphere in projection.
