LaTeX is the premiere software system used for presenting technical information. It is considered the system of choice for writers in mathematics, the sciences, computer science, and engineering who need to present formulas and technical infomation in a clear and elegant manner. It is also increasingly used by nontechnical writers interested in superior printing and document presentation. However, users of this ubiquitous software need to know much more than how to use basic style files or LaTeX commands. They need to know how to integrate Tex-the original version of LaTeX-with other commercially available software and hardware. People also need clear, accurate and brief instructions and solutions to many common problems. This unique book is intended to provide these valuable aids. It also tells how to use LaTex or Tex with files prepared with everyday office software such as Lotus or Wordperfect, and how to set up software links with Acrobat and hyper-text using LaTex for internet communication.show more

Review quote

"This substantial book is definitely not for the faint-hearted, nor for those looking for an introductory text. Designed for serious TEX experts, it contains a mine of information about managing TEX systems and using TEX for complex jobs involving graphics and unusual fonts. The book's 15 chapters break down conveniently into three sets, providing info on installing and running TEX, LATEX, and MetaFont, font installation and selection, and graphics. The book provides copious examples throughout. Several of its chapters have appendices summarizing the commands of a relevant package, and the book ends with a comprehensive list of 'sources and resources' and a 25-page index. 'TEX Unbound is the ideal resource for anyone interested in the full power of TEX and LATEX." - Computing Reviews, Aug 1999show more
