Color discrimination is racism. Be it skin color or passport color.


I no longer look at the questions in stackoverflow. It is more and more becoming a task of finding duplicates of questions, rather than contributing to a good question.


I am a PhD student currently working on robotic skins, both their firmware and their real-time driver/software. My bachelors had been in Software Engineering.

I am implementing a port of C's stdio to the Linux kernel, called kio. I'm also implementing a unified interface to different real-time subsystems, called urt.

I am also writing a compiler that reads a language derived from markdown and generates software documentation. I strongly believe DoxyGen and the like use a very bad method (documentation mixed with code). Check out the DocThis! compiler if you are interested (it works, but I still have a lot of features in mind to add to it). Here is a sample output.

comment Why do I have to fake Texlive package in Ubuntu?
Adding to this, it would greatly help to understand that the GNU/Linux world is different from Windows. While in Windows you have to download/buy/clone every piece of software from a separate location and install each with its own installer, shipped with their own versions of the libraries (often duplicates), in GNU/Linux, e.g. with apt, you can almost always avoid doing that by having the package manager handle all the process for you.

There seems to be a bug. When the rotating node passes two certain points, a perpendicular angle appears suddenly in the middle

@Werner, I'm back with a related question! If using soul package, I write: \ul{This{-}is{-}something}, what I get is This-is-somethi (underlined, of course). Which means \ul eats up as many {-} as I have! Any ideas?

comment Argument of \someCustomCommand has an extra } encountered when command is put in \ul. How to fix this?
Great thanks! Could I ask a side question that is probably related? I see in section 6.4 of the manual how to use soul in section headings. It is very vague, but fine. However, it says how to apply a soul command to the whole section, while I need to write something like \section{Only \ul{this} is underlined}. Is such a thing possible?

In fact, it's no big deal, but if there is such an option it would be easier for me

comment How to have multiple link styles with hyperref?
@speravir: I mean something like this: \hypersetup{colorlinks,urlcolor=blue} in the preamble, and then later something like: \hypersetup{urlcolor=follow-text} and then have \color{red} some text \url{this url will be red} some text \color{green} some text \url{this url will be green} some text \hypersetup{urlcolor=blue}. Of course, everywhere else in the document, the url would be blue
