comment “References” section in a CV
I don't use any specific CV template, but you can achieve this effect easily with a simple tabular environment, or the multicols package.

comment How to display a specific entry from an external data source input?
There is no way to do this exactly as you describe, but there are various ways to deal with data of this sort. See Using external tables in TikZ or File input and output or Formatting complex table from CSV using datatool for some examples.

comment lingtrees on Miktex
Even that doesn't appear to be quite true. A quick test shows that the automath stuff works inside figures as well as long as it's inside the Tree itself.

comment lingtrees on Miktex
What? qtree certainly works in figure environments. Maybe you should post a minimal example of what you don't think works with qtree and we can fix that.

comment lingtrees on Miktex
Is there some reason you need to use lingtrees? I would recommend qtree or tikz-qtree (especially the latter) as a much simpler alternative. See e.g. How to draw syntactical trees with parallel leafs for a natural language? for some examples.

comment Vertical trees with TikZ
There's also the dirtree package which is designed for these sorts of trees. In which case Making a (simple) directory tree is a duplicate.
