## (La)TeX

TeX is a typesetting system which produces high quality results – despite of its age. I became acquainted with TeX back in my university days. I have been in touch with it since then.

I am active in the context of CTAN – the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network. I take care of the Web presence.

I am a member of DANTE e.V. and have been active in the context of the publication of »Die TeXnische Komödie«.

## BibTool

BibTool is a universal tool to manipulate BibTeX databases. BibTool can be utilized for a broad range of operations. BibTool is distributed in source form. It can be used on nearly any system.

The LaTeX
package *cwpuzzle* provides the means and possibilities
to typeset various kinds of crossword puzzles. Recently
support for new puzzle types like Sudoku has been added.

## productbox

The LaTeX
package *productbox* provides a style file for
typesetting a three-dimensional product box. This product box
can be rendered as it is standing on a surface and some light
is shed onto it. Alternatively it can be typeset as a
wireframe to be cut out and glued together. This will lead to
a physical product box.

## limap

The »Information Mapping^{®}« method provides a
different methodology for structuring and presenting
information. It claims to be useful for readers who are more
concerned about finding the right information than reading the
document as a whole. Thus short, highly structured, and
context free pieces of information are used.

## Font Adaptions

In the column »Aus dem Fundus« [From the Repository] of »Die TeXnische Komödie« I have written some articles. They are mainly about fonts. The associated packages can be found here.

With the little
LaTeX
package *eqname* it is possible to label equations with
arbitrary strings in addition to the automatic numbers
provided by
LaTeX.
Referencing these strings is also possible.

## gn-logic

Typesetting mathematics in TeX is tailored towards algebraic
formulae. If you are typesetting logical formulae some
distances might be misleading. The
LaTeX package
*gn-logic.sty* provides macros to avoid this
deficiency.

## Typesetting Prolog Code

The idea of “Literate Programming” is to tie together the code and the documentation. The required aspect can then be extracted. The package pl provides a poor man’s solution for Prolog. It allows you to use the same file without change or generation for LaTeX and for Prolog.
