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.
