To support my research on ecosystem functioning, my collaborators and I are developing PEcAn, a model-data synthesis framework (www.pecanproject.org) and BETYdb, its underlying database (www.betydb.org).

comment Is the Bembo font (or a close equivalent) available for LaTeX?
It is a great font - I personally prefer it to Bembo, but for the particularly picky, (as evidenced in the link provided), it is not quite "almost a perfect clone" as suggested here

comment Can I cross-reference computer code with LaTeX documentation?
answer: yes! I'll have to take a look: ctan.org/pkg/c2latex and mirrors.ibiblio.org/CTAN/support/c2latex/c2latex.c

comment Can I cross-reference computer code with LaTeX documentation?
@SeanAllred I have heard of CWEB, and it is certainly an option. I am familiar with Sweave and org-mode (which I believe are similar (?)). However, for source code, this solution appears less consistent with a standard C-development workflow (and more difficult to debug, etc).

regarding your suggestion about \def\pow{}{}... by any chance does such a c2latex converter already exist?

comment Can I cross-reference computer code with LaTeX documentation?
I kept the "desired workflow" vague because my primary goal is to make documentation easier, less redundant, more accurate. My intuition is that Doxygen source->documentation is preferable to CWEB style documentation-> source because it is easier to debug and more accessible to new developers. Continuing to maintain separate source and documentation is also an option; perhaps one solution would be to maintain a database (even a simple csv table) of the definitions and functions that could be loaded by both documentation and source.

comment Will todonotes work inside an align environment?
@henry I did search the documentation for "align", and saw the alternative you describe, but (if I understand correctly) that is related to aligning an equation within a todo note, rather than vice-versa.

comment How to format a CV / Resume so that it can be parsed by automatic resume uploaders?
@doncherry I was thinking that I could modify this once I learn the requirements; I could also open a new question.

comment How to format a CV / Resume so that it can be parsed by automatic resume uploaders?
@doncherry I am looking for something generic, although I don't know how the sites work. They seem to try to extract information like /education/institution/years/degree and /job/position/years/description, but i don't know the mechanics. Perhaps this question could be migrated? In the meantime, I will consider asking a question about how these works somewhere like superuser.

@tohecz the feature is ubiquitous among sites that host a resume, although implementation probably varies: here are some examples: LinkedIn, usajobs.gov, and monster.com

comment How to doublespace a sidewaystable using setspace?
Thanks - FWIW, I gave +1, not sure why there is a downvote.

comment How to doublespace a sidewaystable using setspace?
Thanks for the simple solution. The main thing that I wanted was to be able to just make a simple re-definition in the preamble that would be only used at one time point, and wouldn't require re-compiling the Sweave source.

comment Add a figure title and x-axis label to a figure matrix created using pdfpages
@PolGab I am not looking to add anything to each page in the source pdf, just to add text to the overall figure.

comment Can I make a greek letter extra-bold in math mode?
I used mkern-11mu in my example, not so horrible - I like double line notation when writing by hand at least - but you are right, I wouldn't want to publish that

comment Can I make a greek letter extra-bold in math mode?
@Werner it does pretty much solve the issue, but I'd still like to know if I can make the \bm{\beta} even more bold. So I have revised the question to make the distinction.

@DavidCarlisle I used \mathbf in my tests. \bm definitely works, but I would like to know if I could make it "double-bold".
