comment How to recover this Tikz drawing that no longer compiles
@Daniel: what error do you get (and what is the minimal example file (including preamble and begin/end document)? I can see a ton of mismatched braces {} at first glance, I'm quite sure that code never compiled.

@Werner why flag? You should vote to close as off-topic and suggest TeX.Stackexchange instead. No need to get mods involved.

comment Breaking long links in bibliography using REVTeX and Bibtex
This should be reopened, as it's still an issue without a solution. Note that the long links prevail on APS's end, and the editors of the journals request these are fixed by the submitter.

comment Would it make sense to write a TeX algorithms implementation in Cairo/Pango, so that it can be used to output anything Cairo can?
@Christian: I asked this on Stackoverflow, it was migrated against my will, and I agree it has little to do with TeX... But this actually is the type of answer I'm looking for: can cairo/pango be used to typeset (a subset of) LaTeX.

Huh, I had already found the shading=color wheel option but it didn't work. Now it does. This is great, thanks! What does the even odd rule part actually do?

comment Is there a better (more condensed) way of formatting a subscript \perp (or \bot)?
@Christian \perp is just \mathrel{\bot}. See here. I made the example self-contained :).

comment pdflatex commandline hide compilation output
@Haxelaar Hmm, it seems to be present for the MiKTeX 2.9 pdflatex version, but the Arch Linux TeXLive version does not have it indeed. Then redirecting output is your only option. You can leave out the 2>&1 bit if you still want to show errors (and maybe warnings, depending on how pdflatex outputs them).

@martin I'm not so sure this relates to using TeX as opposed to doing what TeX does, in a programming context. ALso, I doubt people here know what Cairo/Pango is.

@keks move typesetting into a nice programming library that can be used in a variety of settings, without the hassle of compiling to e.g. a PNG and displaying that. I mean, really write to the drawing surface directly, and have access to the components that were typeset.
