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.

comment Display a sequence of materials with chemical symbols
You can use \slash instead of / if you want to allow a linebreak after a slash. If you write \ce{Co}-\ce{Fe}-\ce{B} you can avoid the bond problem (but of course you'll have even more \ces).

Can you maybe add your comments to your question and maybe extend them a little bit so the problem description becomes a bit more clear?

comment Defining a command that scans every arguments' macro “looking for” a token
The [default] should be in the false branch I guess: \@ifnextchar[{\foo@aux{#1}}{\foo@aux{#1}[default]}

comment Tex capacity exceeded by using renewcommand to add arguments into a list
@cfr because \edef does exhaustive expansion which might lead to trouble. The \expandafter chain only expands the \List once so trouble is much less likely.

comment Tex capacity exceeded by using renewcommand to add arguments into a list
Without TikZ (or rather pgffor) the code will result it ! Undefined control sequence. ... \foreach.

comment acro package files in c:\Users\Bob\AppData\{Local,Roaming}\MiKTeX\2.9
acro is part of MiKTeX. Why did you install it manually? You should install it via MiKTeX's package manager if necessary.

comment biblatex-chicago etoolbox error: Invalid boolean Expression
@Sveinung because at some point the argument must be placed between \csname ... \endcsname. They build the command name from the whole (expanded) argument, also with catcode 12 tokens...

comment Does SIunits package correctly manage the typography according to the language of document?
@egreg now that you mention it I checked the file name... strange that CTAN has different spellings for SIunits but not for SIstyle...

comment Does SIunits package correctly manage the typography according to the language of document?
I don't know of a SIunits package. Do you mean SIstyle or siunits? In any way both have been superseded by siunitx and are no longer actively developed.
