comment Is there any way to get real-time compilation for LaTeX?
@frabjous: I'll take a look at that. latexmk is not bundled in the distribution I use, but most likely because I am using a heavily customized set from TeXLive 2010 under Gentoo Linux.

Ah, you missed the link. That's alright. I hope for your sake you didn't try to Google "LaTeX string". It is one of those seemingly harmless combinations of words...

Did you look at the Link that I posted? The \string command converts the one character that follows it into a string. So you can type \string_ to get the underscore character, or \string{ to get the open brace character etc. In your revised example you are almost surely using the command wrong.

comment Is there any way to do a correct word count of a LaTeX document?
Just tried it on a recent paper I wrote: yeah, detex is wildly off. I get even better results from piping dvi2tty to wc.

I cannot help but think that calling perl just to do chomp and a regex is way too much of an overkill. =) Why not just ' ... | wc -w | tr -d [:space:]'?

And even if you don't want to use the vim-latex macros, you can define silly short cuts like I do: dpmms.cam.ac.uk/~ww278/#texres

comment Can I create music sheets with LaTeX?
@Arthur: that's news to me. (Seriously. The last time I used Lilypond was close to 6 years ago, and back then it was based on TeX. I wonder what made them switch.)

comment Automatically numbering constants
Well, in your answer I think if I just use \ref* instead of \ref it will be okay with hyperref. Though with showkeys it will still generate a bunch of new keys in the margin, which one might argue is actually preferable.

I am not completely thrilled about accepting my own answer, but I feel that the package I linked to is a better solution then hacking my own commands.

comment Adding line numbers to latex and respecting equations
Take a look at ulineno.pdf from ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/lineno (the user's manual). It explains why lineno has trouble with equations and paragraphs containing equations, and also some work-arounds.
