Is that Canadian Spanish?

And programming guis in matlab sucks. Dat tedium, and I'm too used to having the y axis go from top to bottom, and not the matlab way...

Is that some sort of random character creator or something? My brother extracted all the Asari names from Mass Effect and made an Asari name generator by using common beginnings and endings of names from the game.

PHP web development is pretty damn ugly.

When your outputting data, for the most part, its an ugly mix of PHP code and HTML code.
usually ending with a few JavaScript functions.

Really hideous.

There's labs where like 3/4 of the main Java file is the GUI code. Then, you may have to edit that GUI code, which is always a bitch. At least that's how it is in Java. I don't have experience with programming GUIs in any of the C languages.

If you read all the documentation, it's not that hard to create GUIs in Java.
At least if you have an IDE, which can make things much easier.

Yep, **** that shit.

Having to spend 10 hours googling and reading man pages just to make a very simple functionality is not how I like to spend my afternoons :/

Yeah, I'm going with Java.
Easy to undestand, easy to implement, and most importantly has easily accessible and easy to understand documentation for everything!!!

I don't think I can stress that last point enough.

The Java API documentation is pretty amazing.

As far as I can tell, I can use LaTeX to an ok standard but obviously this is nowhere near its capabilities.

you slowly learn more and more things you can do with it, so I kind of maintain a template file with all the commands commented out.

having said that there aren't THAT many things that you need to do that often

the must-haves are definitely:
contents page
figures
tables
equations
lists
and bibtex for your references

^that last one is the holy grail if you're writing research reports believe me!

Agh yeah, I use them all for each report except bibtex. I may learn how to use that then.

Actually, do you know if it's possible to create your own template for each time LaTeX opens? I just find it tedious entering all of the below code every time I start a new report. It's not a lot but it'd be lovely to create a template with it already there.

I was told to use LaTeX by my supervisor for my thesis, I've always used Word for report writing.

I downloaded the Windows program that runs it and everything, but still havent used it.

What's so special about it?

 12-06-2012, 08:28 PM #111 gonzaw UG's Secret Agent     Join Date: Mar 2007 Location: Uruguay I tried using LaTex but meh, I was too lazy to learn all the details of it. Also basically my project partner is the one that knows it and uses it so I don't really worry about it :P Although when I have to work in a project with someone else other than him I kind of use a normal plain text document for reports >_> <_<

Nah, it's more like a character sheet with a GUI with stat calculations and selectable skills, feats, and etc. There are plenty of random name generators, but not enough character creators.

Well, in my opinion it makes beautiful documents without the effort of me formatting every last detail to look nice.

It's also fantastic for equation writing. Let's say I want to write out the wave equation, I trype the following:

Code:
$$\frac{\partial^2 u}{\partial t^2} = c^2 \nabla^2 u$$

which gives me:

which is far easier than working your way through the word equation box and then searching for symbols.

Some of the functions such as \tableofcontents are extremely handy as it'll automatically compile a table of contents from any time you make a new section, subsection, part etc. with \part{Your part title}, \section{Your section title} etc.
