comment \seq_push and \seq_pop functions behaving badly, undoubtedly due to misuse
It's just a naming convention, l for local and g for global (and c for constant). I means: "I will never use \tl_gset on it; I wil stick to \tl_set." But nothing (technically speaking) stops you from doing \tl_gset:Nn \l_no_tl_at_the_end_of_the_name:::____ {foo}.

comment \seq_push and \seq_pop functions behaving badly, undoubtedly due to misuse
I think it's covered there pretty well, especially in §3.2. It's just not explained there that for you (or me or any other L3 user), module is something that is specific to their works. Also, module names intended to be used by the general public should be registered with the team, to avoid name clashes.

comment \seq_push and \seq_pop functions behaving badly, undoubtedly due to misuse
as a side note: please follow the naming scheme! It should be \myFunction_build -> \neuwirth_myFunction_build, \output_tl -> \l_neuwirth_output_tl, \params_seq -> \l_neuwirth_params_seq, \index_i -> \l_index_int etc. You can choose other prefix than neuwirth, but you have to use a prefix!

comment table on a double page
Ah yeah, that's right; it would need much more careful handling. I just hope the OP won't be surprised at some moment :-)

comment table on a double page
You should probably make it into \vphantom, or use some invisible rule, so that the column height is counted in, no? (If I miss something, I apologize)

comment How to do search-and-replace in a macro?
First, I know that this is only an example, but please do not ever use \bf or \it in LaTeX---use \bfseries and \itshape. Second, do you mean something like what the package xpatch does? ctan.org/pkg/xpatch

comment Citation of International Organisations
@moewe It seems that the question you linked provides the answer. Rather than writing the same answer here, I voted for duplicating.

comment Citation of International Organisations
Either use author = {{International Monetary Fund}} or organization = {International Monetary Fund}, given your bibliographystyle supports the organization field. Also, it would be easier to help you if you provided a minimal example, with the BIB file and a minimal LaTeX document so that we know, for instance, which BibTeX style you use and how do you code the bibliography entries.

comment What does this error mean?
@Manoj Please, use the edit button below the question text and add your code there. This is impossible to parse.

comment What does this error mean?
This is due to a corrupted aux file. Just remove the file Thesis.aux. (Most LaTeX text editors have this somewhere in the menus).

comment How can I set the papersize in in book documentclass?
I believe it's \usepackage[paperwidth=170.00mm, paperheight=240.00mm, ... rather than just width and height... Anyway, it doesn't make sense to specify b5paper and then set up a different paper size.

comment Handwrite letter V in Inline Math Mode
@PrzemysławScherwentke To me it appears like that the particular font is not of interest, rather the calligraphic/script style. Anyways, font recognition questions are off-topic since they are hardly useful to anybody else than the OP...

comment Removing texmf/doc/ directories from old TeXlives
Ah ok, it seems that it's only man1 (man page for the binaries) and manual to KOMA, so I should be fine. Well, for now I renamed the folders to doc_remove so that whoever is looking won't find anything, and I'll see :)

comment Aux file won't finish writing
This looks like that you kill the process mid-way somehow, truncating the aux file in the middle of the string \citation. We really need to know more about what you're doing. Could you maybe construct a minimal (non-)working example (MWE)?
