Math professor by day, hacker by night.

I teach calculus and try to implement teaching and new media technologies. I use a lot of LaTeX and the occasional scripting language.

So glad I found this site—now I can unsubscribe to some of those mailing lists I should be paying attention to but never have the time when the mails come.

comment How to include audio file in PDF
The docs for that package say it is obsolete and suggest media9.

comment Is hyperref really the best way to add metadata to a TeX file?
@Speravir: filecontents would allow me to write text to a file verbatim, true. I'm thinking more of a process that would dynamically generate the XMP file. Since I made the original comment, I have learned that the attachfile and attachfile2 packages can be used for the embedding part of the task.

comment Prevent pdflatex from writing a bunch of files
@JonathanBaldwin: Not all stati quo are created equal. IMO the work needed to force LaTeX to not use auxiliary files will not lead to inventions on the level of the printing press.

comment How can I easily use the same preamble on all my documents?
I would suggest that the local texmf directory follow the TeX Directory Structure, so a custom package would go in temxmf-local/tex/latex/mypackages/ At the same time you can put your images in texmf-local/tex/generic/images, etc.

comment insert -> Senseless!
Google suggests you tried to insert a caption outside of a float. But without more information it's hard to tell.
