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 can I test if a command is followed by an argument?
@SSharpie, I was looking for a TeX answer, but a LaTeX one would also be welcome

comment What are the available “documentclass” types and their uses?
I think this question is too open ended and just voted to close. There are literally thousands of classes out there. I would be much more interested in similar questions by topic, e.g. we already have classes for letters, maybe also classes for slides, classes for cv's, etc. People will search by topic.

comment What is the difference between \def and \newcommand?
Wow, I actually didn't know about the \end... commands not being definable by \newcommand. Always learning a new thing!

Even better, you could in addition provide a simple style file already defining a few macros and semantic commands for your particular class so that students find the LaTeX syntax more natural and helps them type their formulas more easily.

comment How to encourage TeX as a homework medium
Why TeX and not LaTeX? Did your students got any introductory courses on how to use LaTeX before? Perhaps the early learning curve is to high for them to try to figure out by themselves.

comment How do magic \dots work in amsmath?
Just a quick note before going to sleep: it works! If I use \newcommand{\myto}{\DOTSB\to} then \myto will produce the correct alignment! Thanks, tomorrow I'll try and check what the other options do.

comment How do magic \dots work in amsmath?
Thanks, I already knew about these, but I'm actually trying to define a macro that will add \dots between some some relations/operators which are provided by the user. So I, as a package write, don't know in advance which of the semantic commands should be used. However, as the example in the question shows, amsmath somehow knows!
