comment “Flatten” macros prior to sharing LaTeX file
@cfr I tried with separation; as it happens my usual workflow already puts the commands in a custom .sty file; all I did was change the filename to reflect the requirement (I assume, based on the documentation) that it ends in -private.sty.

comment “Flatten” macros prior to sharing LaTeX file
@TorbjørnT.: you answered with de-macro in that linked question. The documentation for that package on the CTAN website is very brief. Would you saying a few more words about it? (I've just tested it and the result doesn't look too promising: it introduced an extra brace to the preamble causing a syntax error, and made zero changes to the body. It is likely that I am using it wrong.)

comment “Flatten” macros prior to sharing LaTeX file
@DavidCarlisle: which is why I also asked for existing tools. For simple definitions with no arguments, a regexp is easy enough to do by hand. But for definitions with arguments and possibly optional arguments, I wouldn't trust myself to cobble together something in a short amount of time. If someone has a nice perl/python script that can reliably handle the parsing (up to certain known caveats), it would make me very happy.

comment Citations with names instead of numbers
You can probably get it using the default debug style, but I wouldn't recommend that as the real solution. See section 3.3.1 of the biblatex guide for the default styles, and section 4.3 for how to write your own citation styles.

comment How to insert searchable value for PDF reader?
If you just want searchable and are okay with the headword being slightly off (in terms of the highlighted parts when you search), you can just use \rlap{\color{white}Original Word}Head-word-with-symbols instead of the \makebox incantation. This way you also don't need to measure the lengths.

comment Is it more common to type period inside dollars or outside?
And don't worry too much about the "punctuation for sentences ending in displayed formula" issue if you are preparing the document for a commercial publisher. House styles overrule whatever you personally like. (I had just dealt with some author proofs where every other displayed equation there is a change log of the form "removed \; before punctuation".)

comment \multicolumn issues
The OP probably would want the last lines to be \cline{1-3} \multicolumn{1}{|l|}{Average and uncertainty}, considering the examples he linked to.

comment ASCII graphs in LaTeX document?
How is the parser supposed to know to add edges between the nodes? And how it is supposed to know when not to add edges between the nodes? If you are flexible to using a better-formed syntax, maybe you can consider graphviz? ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/graphviz

comment How to test whether the starred-version of a command is defined?
Both very good answers, accepting this one sort of randomly, and because the last sentence got me thinking enough to come up with another way around my problem. Thanks!

@user25957: I am not familiar with TexWorks, do this or other questions in the texworks tag help? If not try asking a new question about it.

comment Insert ams classification in scrartcl
Hum, are you sure you have posted all the code that is sufficient to reproduce your problem? I am wondering if you have some modified definition of \deffootnote and \deffootnotemark? KOMA controls the presentation of footnotes in two different places, one is via \thefootnotemark which the code I gave suppresses, the other is via the formatting options in \deffootnote. It is possible that somewhere in your workflow the footnote presentation is redefined so that the footnote definition is something like \thefootnotemark), which will cause you to see what you saw.

The version is included in the logs, when you, for example, issue latex filename.tex. There would be a line that says something like Document Class: scrartcl 2012/05/15 v3.11 KOMA-Script document class (article)

@manenir: I tried the code you posted. There are no parentheses. Which distribution of TeX are you using? Which version of koma-script?
