Description: TEX, a software system created by Donald E. Knuth, sets the standard for typesetting in mathematics, science, and engineering. “TEX for the Impatient” is a handbook that arose from the need to help technical writers learn TEX more quickly and once having learned it, to find fast answers to common questions. Clear, concise, and accessible, this book is organized for easy retrieval of information, thoroughly indexed, and carefully designed for learning by example. TEX for the Impatient is intended to serve scientists, mathematicians, and technical typists for whom TEX is a useful tool rather than a primary interest, as well as computer people who have a strong interest in TEX for its own sake. We also intend it to serve both newcomers to TEX and those who are already familiar with TEX. We assume that our readers are comfortable working with computers and that they want to get the information they need as quickly as possible. Our aim is to provide that information clearly, concisely, and accessibly. This book therefore provides a bright searchlight, a stout walking-stick, and detailed maps for exploring and using TEX.
