comment How to know the coordinate for Tikz drawing? Is there a way to show the coordinates in Texmaker? Thank you
Simplest method is to draw the grid in tikz and use that as a guide. Once you are done, just comment the "grid" portion of the code.

@egreg: Excellent solution. With that I don't need to do anything different within a macro. Thanks.

comment How to insert a # via \immediate\write18 within a macro
@JosephWright: Yep that works great. Thanks. I though that since I was using \string the double ## issue did not occur to me. Also, even though it is the same answer as the linked question, in this case I am not trying to define a macro via a macro which is where the usual doubling of the # comes up. Or at least that was my understanding.

comment Setting labels closer to the coordinates that they represent
@user74973: The default is 0pt, but since you specified an angle that itself has some padding built is (not sure what it is), but you could experiment to see what adjustment you need to get the label back onto the center of the coordinate.

comment Run a shell script (with parameters) from a PDF generated by LaTeX
Ok, thanks. Seems as if encoding the parameters in the script name means that I need a separate script for each case. I just need the script to be able to detect which file invoked it. My current plan for a workaround is to have each file execute its own script that gets created by pdflatex, and that script will invoke the main script with the appropriate parameters, which I guess is similar to what you suggested. Thanks again Heiko.

comment Is there any way to read arbitrary part of external tex file?
I highly recommend you look at the standalone package. Numerous examples on this site.
