I'm a LaTeX enthusiast (who still has loads to learn, though :) )

I really like the LaTeX3 programming language expl3 which makes LaTeX programming so much easier and more intuitive.

I'm the maintainer of a few mostly chemistry related LaTeX packages such as chemnum or the chemmacros bundle about which I report on my blog www.mychemistry.eu.


Any code of mine that I publish or have published previously on the TeX.SE main site I hereby relicense under the WTFPL.

BTW: why download the package? It is part of both TeX Live and MiKTeX...?!

You know there are dedicated packages and classes for this kind of thing like probsoln, answers, exsheets or exam, do you?

Use a chemistry package such as mhchem or chemformula. Also see Typesetting chemical element names

comment Changing the behavior of $$ but not of $
It's protected because \new@ifnextchar is not expandable, I guess. Also \@DDollar is not expandable. Place the unprotected version in an \edef and see what's happens...

comment Replace \input{fileX} by the content of fileX automatically
I wonder if any of the scripts take care of the difference between \input and \include? Otherwise the new file might give different results as the original source

comment Leaked styling from my stackon
Do you know that inserting inter-paragraph spacing with \\[1\baselineskip] is wrong? In fact \` should *never* be necessary outside a tabular` (and other alignment environments)!

comment Define new command which insert environment
You can wrap around \lstinline without reading the argument: \newcommand*\code[1]{\lstinline[language=#1]}. As @egreg says this only works for short inline code
