Some tips to deal with TeX files

	To create a tex file: just append .tex to the filename, "filename.tex"
	To typeset with latex a file: %latex filename.tex
	To visualize dvi file resulting from that: %xdvi filename.dvi
	Before printing convert to ps file: %dvips filename.dvi -o
        Or you can do everything described above and visualize the resulting
	.ps file through ghostview using my bash script HERE.

Gimp tips

	Some time you are in a rush and need to add a picture to your 
presentation and realize that would be nice to borrow from someone else paper
(citing the source of course!), after all you are running out of time and to 
prepare a picture descently takes a lot of time. There is a way to use gimp to 
get the picture you want:

	% gimp &

	Open, for example, a .ps file from where you are going to steal the 
pic :)
	In the gimp menu click: file -> aquire -> Screen Shot...
        In the poped up box you can select to grab single window without 
decoration. Click OK and then click on the gv window (for example). 
	Select the picture you want and click on the right button of the mouse.
	Ctrl-c or ctrl-x the selected pic and then, in the same box, select
Paste as new.
	Right click on the picture and select Save as.
	Type the name of the file---e.g. test.jpg
	A new window pops up asking if you want to export. Do it! and then 
adjust the settings featuring the quality of the picture. You are done!
	Also you can save as .eps and include in your .tex file by simply typing
the name of the file and the extension .eps. Export it. Adjust the way you 
want the picture and that's it! Have fun! (but remember to cite the source!)

I have a template of a makefile for compiling my phd thesis and copying 
it to the same directory where the .html documents are (and its respective
links to and phd.pdf files). Change it to adequate your own needs. 
It is available HERE.

Viver não dói (trecho)

A cada dia que vivo, mais me convenço de que o
desperdício da vida está no amor que não damos, nas
forças que não usamos, na prudência egoísta que nada
arrisca, e que, esquivando-se do sofrimento, perdemos
também a felicidade.

A dor é inevitável.
O sofrimento é opcional.

Carlos Drummond de Andrade
