Useful TeX/LaTeX utilities
- The free dvii
utility extracts information from a TeX
dvi file. Information displayed can include a summary (file comment,
file size, number of pages, number of fonts), as well as more detailed
information such as font names for all fonts used,
a list of all \specials and the page on which they appear.
- The texfiles.pl
utility is a Perl script that archives all the files
in a TeX/LaTeX project including all TeX source, style and class
files, all fonts (tfm, pfa, pfb, pk, etc.), and so on.
If you need a reliable image of what files went into compiling a
TeX/LaTeX project, get this free utility.
- If you are trying to decide on a book to help you
learn more TeX or LaTeX, please visit my
recommended TeX and LaTeX
printed resources page. In it I give short reviews of several
books and printed resources (some freely downloadable) that have
helped me in my TeXing through the years.
