Don't fear to edit my posts: even if I have more reputation than you, I do make mistakes.

I'm now also a Moderator Pro Tempore (= until the first elections) at Cryptography Stack Exchange: feel free to come around and ask some cryptography questions.


My personal name is spoken as /ˈpawlo/ (IPA), in English this would be written similar to Powlo, I think (i.e. the vowels are ow and o), with an accent on the before-last syllable (which is the first in this case). It's the Esperanto form of my given name.

The photo shows my shadow, taken at night. My camera sometimes seems to forget all the other frequencies and only stores the green ones.

My current main private programming project is the game of fencing, an online abstract turn based strategy game. Implemented as a Java applet, using git as a version control system.

comment Prematurely ended file
There is \immediate which you can prepend to \openout, \write and \closeout. (But then you can't use any page-dependent stuff in the output, of course.)

Post your reading code - maybe there is a problem with this.

Can you see at which point exactly it ends? Always at the same offset from the start?

comment How to put \verb command inside of \textbf{} block?
More generally, you can't use \verb inside any other command's argument (apart from some commands which are specially made to support this, by not really using an argument here).

comment Why doesn't pdfTeX support PStricks directly?
I considered as driver the program which finally embeds the image in the document, e.g. the DVI-to-PS converter or the PDFTeX backend. If you consider as driver the definition file for the graphics package, you are right, then this is simply analogous to the existing ones.

In the case of PDFTeX, the driver is build in in the same program, though.

comment Create list of all external files used by master LaTeX document?
My dateiliste package includes a list of TeX files parsed in the document, but without complete path. (And not files used by includegraphics or similar.)
