I run a firm that writes software for solving combinatorial optimisation problems. I'm interested in Metaheuristics, Constraint Programming, and various other OR techniques. I've got a PhD in Artificial Intelligence.

I mainly write in Java, Scala, bash, and R. I have been known to dabble in LaTeX and fancy getting into Golang at some point when time allows.

comment Extra space in front of keywords in listings
I think I was wrong-footed by the fact the issue only revealed itself in code listings, so it wasn't particularly obvious that actually the microtype stuff was to blame. Ach well, the joys of LaTeX!

comment Sweave generating invalid LaTeX
@AlanMunn thanks, the 's were causing the problem. The weird thing is that I'd not touched that preamble in months and the previous versions of Sweave (or more accurately pgfSweave) had not exhibited this problem.

revised Sweave generating invalid LaTeX
I've done some further experiments and found this problem affects Sweave not just pgfSweave as I'd originally though.

comment Making efficient use of \writes
@Bruno: I'm not using rvwrite. I added it in the hope it might help. If I remove it, then it frees up one more register and the compilation can get one listing further. The underlying problem still remains.
