A computer science lecturer at University College London. I do stuff in logic, theorem proving, program analysis and verification. I'm a very enthusiastic TeX/LaTeX user, most days.

I also run a small site for LaTeX beginners in spanish: LaTeX Fácil.

comment how to avoid bibtex error message “repeated entry” for an entry appearing in several bibtex files?
I remember there was some (set of?) command line tools to manage and process bib files, e.g. sort, merge, find duplicates, etc. But my memory is failing and I can't seem to be able to find them anymore. Does anyone know about these?

comment Typing and editing Beamer presentations
I think all suggestions are pretty sensible, except for the last one. I've learned the hard way not to modify files on which many existing documents already depend, specially for beamer slides where the actual look of the document is kind of important. In other words: "If you decide to change your style, all previously created presentations could" break.

comment Style/class tutorials
If you want to do some tweaking or write a cls yourself, you will probably need some experience with low-level TeX as well.

comment Semantic TeX - where are we heading?
I think this is not the kind of questions this site is best suited for. The question is asking for subjective discussion and speculation, but this site works best for direct questions which often have only one objective answer.

comment How to right-align a title (without creating a complete custom title page)?
Dirty hack, but indeed gets the job done! Although I wouldn't recommend going around and writing this for every new document, as a one-off hack I really like it!

comment What is the best way to scan over a list of somethings?
Thanks for the reference! It does have some nice commands to process a list of arguments. If you don't mind I can edit your answer to include an example.
