comment vim on Rnw (sweave) files: how to indent <<>>== properly?
@Seamus: thanks for the comment. The procedure is to get R to scan the file, using the "Sweave" command. That command passes all normal text through to a .tex file, except for blocks that start with ^<<.*>>== (a regular expression that starts at column 1). In other words, R demands that these codes start at column 1 of the file. This is by design, because it lets you enter such content at other columns without triggering Sweave. (By the way, what happens for these special blocks is that R runs them, and it puts the R output into the tex file.)

comment how to cause unix 'make' to know how many times to run *tex
@Yannick: Thanks. I like make because I'm doing a lot of extra things in there, besides the *tex work. Maybe I should use latexmk and make together, though.

Thanks, I didn't know about -draftmode. It speeds up my compilation by 10 percent.

comment What's the correct use of \author when multiple authors?
+1 for \and, which I've not seen in many years of using latex. I've not needed this (and will not likely ever use it) because the journals for which I write each have their own way of handling such things.

comment What are the advantages of using version control (git, CVS etc) in LaTeX documents
@Seamus: I probably use dropbox incorrectly. I want all my files to be local to the directories in which I work, so I copy to dropbox, which is a bit of work. I guess I should make links to my dropbox directory. Thanks.

comment Using LaTeX to draw time series graphs and histograms
Sorry, your original post ("I just want to plot some data") suggested that you have the data in a file, and wanted to read the file and plot it using latex. I don't know much about regenerating data in latex, but I know for sure that you could do such a thing in R. I think you should google "cran logistic map" and start reading what you get. If you need a quick solution, of course the best plan is to make Maple create a graph, and use includegraphics{} in latex to typeset it. That is the normal way to do things.
