This might be a very stupid question, but I don't manage to find the pgf manual v2.00. On CTAN I only found v2.10. (I'd like to find it because I want to follow Andrew's comment to this great answer.)

  • If you want the concordance, Andrew's referring to the PGF Key Management Utility which is described in Chapter 55 of the 2.10 manual. Key handlers such as .code are in Section 55.4. Nov 17 '10 at 13:21
  • @Matthew: Thanks for the references, but I also wanted the full 2.00 manual. Nov 17 '10 at 14:04
  • don't you already have it on your system (texdoc pgfmanual)? Surely, you should read the version of the manual directly relevant to the version that you have? (And I should have put the section number in my comment as being a better reference.) Nov 17 '10 at 15:26
  • @Andrew: I have both a very old version (by an administrator globally) and version 2.10 (by myself locally) installed. I wanted to have a look at the example for the .store in handler that you mentioned, and could more easily find this in the 2.00 manual. Moreover, I wanted to have a look at changes as there is this question about the bug in 2.10. Nov 17 '10 at 16:13

An alternative way is to use the TeX Live SVN repo: the root of the trees is at http://tug.org/svn/texlive/trunk/Master/. Then you append the location of the pgf manual: texmf-dist/doc/generic/pgf (using texdoc -l pgf will show you that the file is there), and click the pgfmanual.pdf link to see the list of revisions. Finally, use the "download" link for the revision you want: here the final url is http://tug.org/svn/texlive/trunk/Master/texmf-dist/doc/generic/pgf/pgfmanual.pdf?revision=6741.

This works fine for files whose location doesn't change too often.

  • Thanks; this is a nice option since I can find different versions at the same spot. Nov 18 '10 at 9:38

You can get old versions of pgf at the pgf sourceforge site. The manual should be bundled with the rest of the files.

  • Thanks! Not the most convenient way to obtain the manual, but I did succeed to find it in the tarball. Nov 17 '10 at 14:06
