I have been using LaTeX since 1987 or thereabouts and have been on the LaTeX3 team since before we released LaTeX2e. I'm currently somewhat inactive in the LaTeX project but show up in related fields, I'm an editor of the MathML spec for example.

I am employed by NAG ltd, but any opinions expressed here are personal.

comment How to Split Document in TexMaker
@RicardoVelozJr you also need to put the \chapter command in the included file, not before the \include or you will get a page break after the heading. web2ctex allows you to surround filenames with " if it contains problem characters like space, but it's simpler to avoid the problem.

It's best not to have spaces in the file name as well

\include always starts a new page: put the chapter heading in the file to be included

comment Plotting a function in Latex
You can use something like pgfplots as the above comment shows but alternatively (and more commonly) you can plot the graph in whatever plotting software you are used to (gnuplot, excel, matlab, ....) and include the resulting image using \includegraphics

comment Long list of tabular figures inside minipage goes off page
This would be a lot more efficient if you simply omitted the figure environments

comment Long list of tabular figures inside minipage goes off page
@Shaku If you use \includegraphics as shown in teh answer here not in a figure they will be printed in the order they appear in the source, they will not "randomly move" any more than words in a paragraph randomly move when typeset.

comment Long list of tabular figures inside minipage goes off page
@Shaku if you used longtable and it did not break over a page then you used it incorrectly, it is hard to say what you did wrong if you do not give an example.

@Shaku No. the minipage in that position does nothing

In what way is the question different from the linked one? It appears to be identical?

comment wrong page numbers in the index of a latex document
have you re-run latex, the table of contents information is collected from the previous run, so the first run after a large edit will have incorrect numbers, a second run should resolve it

mvkorpel's solution is more complete (also using renewcommand instead of let, which is more official latex:-)

comment I need help on forcing a pagebreak in LaTeX
yes.. I initially made (but didn't post) a comment saying exactly this, but then as OP already has the figures at end of document in the source, just flushing them out seemed more efficient, although in general endfloat seems to work quite well for this. (+1:-)
