comment Multiple Tables Sweave/Latex
+1 While it does not actually answer the question, it is definitely a good recommendation for someone who is just starting with R ans Sweave.

comment Multiple Tables Sweave/Latex
There are already several good answers using Sweave, but I would suggest looking at knitr, which is a modern replacement fot Sweave. See yihui.name/knitr

comment How was TeX output visualised on screen, back in the day?
I was still using an Informer terminal like this in the mid 90's. Hooked to a modem, connected to the OSU dialup service. In fact, I wrote my dissertation on it. Does anybody know when dvi2vdu first appered? The dvgt README file written by Geoffrey Tobin in 1993 only says "It was invented long ago by Andrew Trevorrow ..."

comment How can I use LaTex to mark my delta y and my delta x?
Geogebra is very flexible, there is actually very little you cannot do with it. For publication quality drawings I atill prefere LaTeX with tikz, or perhaps something like Asymptote or metapost.

comment compiling pdflatex from the terminal in vim
Hm, it does not seem like this is a TeX question after all ,but rather a Vim question. Anyway, can you find out where does Vim save the file? How excatly are you openning the file in Vim at the beginning?

It is also possible to create braces like that directly in Geogebra using a custom tool, see geogebratube.org/material/show/id/33499

comment compiling pdflatex from the terminal in vim
If you have LaTeX-suite installed, you should be able to type \ll in the normal mode in Vim, and the document should compile. However, it pretty much does the same thing as :w followed by :!pdflatex %, so I doubt it will fix your problem.

comment compiling pdflatex from the terminal in vim
Can you post the exact error message you get when running pdflatex? Also, what does Vim status line tell you about the file encoding? Could it be that the file was somehow converted and some invisible characters are messing up the compilation?

comment Possible to have a shell script containing the whole LaTeX document?
See the zeroth's edit: enclosing the THEEND string in single quotes prevents $ expansion and makes all the quoting unncessary.

revised Possible to have a shell script containing the whole LaTeX document?
With zerod's edit to the script, the note about parameter expansion at the end is no longer relevant.
