comment Switch between different output versions compiled from the same LaTeX source
@anderstood: I have in my file the lines \usepackage{ifthen} and \newboolean{var}. If I compile this with 'pdflatex \def\var{yes}\input' (or pdflatex '\def\var{true}\input', then var seems still to be set to false.

@cfr: It's not about a draft version. I would like to control from the command line to include certain parts of the document or not.

@DavidCarlisle: Thank you, that is easier than I thought. I'm declaring my variable internally via \newboolean{variable}, which needs the package ifthen. Is is also possible to assign such a variable a value from the command line?

comment Adding two labels to an edge in TikZ, close to the endpoints
@Qrrbrbirlbel: Thanks! Now I know how to create two labels with near start and near end. Where exactly should I use the font keyword?

Thanks. Just playing with the remarks in Qrrbrbirlbel's comment, I figured that I can add two nodes to the same \draw command. However, I'm still not sure where to put the font keyword.

comment Dice symbols for digits up to 9
@MatthewLeingang: I am using LaTeX (pdflatex) a lot, but I have to admit that I don't have much of an idea what is going on under the hood (concerning characters, fonts, etc). What do you think is the preferable way? Adjusting ifsym, adjusting epsdice or using TikZ?
