Is there any difference between verbatim's comment and comment's comment environments?
 
@Kurzd Apart from the fact that one prints something and the other doesn't, there's no other difference.

@egreg Testing both packages seems to result in the same. lshort suggests loading verbatim, but the comment package is older yet does more things with comments.

@DavidCarlisle Pretty sure this is about the IEEEtran template. tex.stackexchange.com/questions/355673/…

@JosephWright I have some problems tagging this question. What would be appropriate? The question has nothing to do with cvs, nothing with texify. It is just a typo in the bibliography.

@TeXnician Thank you for the explanation!
 
@CarLaTeX @CarLaTeX You're welcome. But sometimes my posts are even saying this ;)
 
@TeXnician I saw the code but I've not read the phrase you put before :$
 
@CarLaTeX Probably you just did not want to be influenced. I also read Brainfuck programs without their comments ;)

@TeXnician As I also told @ChristianHupfer, ages ago I modified some assembler programs on mainframe. I don't know if you know how they are: they have instructions (1:1 with machine language) on the left and comments on the right. My "nice" boss used to copy-paste the instructions and change them but without changing the comments... since then I don't trust comments in codes!
 
@Kurzd not a lot, verbatim is part of the core latex release whereas comment is a later contributed package so that used to mean more likely that people have verbatim, but these days with miktex and texlive that isn't an issue.
 
@CarLaTeX I know assembler. But I never comment it. That's why I have no clue what my old programs from years ago exactly do (from the structural side of things).
 
@TeXnician I can't believe it! There's someone who knows assembler!
 
@CarLaTeX But nowadays I hate assembler (and am not sure if I still could write bigger programs).
 
@TeXnician I hated assembler even then! Hahaha

@PauloCereda I managed to hide another Duck in one of my answers. It is not in plain sight though.
 
@Johannes_B oooh
 
10:25 AM
@Johannes_B @egreg would say placing duck content in answers actually means pleading for upvotes ;- @PauloCereda
 
@ChristianHupfer yes. :)
 
@PauloCereda .... Washington D.C. (Washington = Donald. J. T. ) .... Duck Content .. Donald... say no more ;-)
 
@JosephWright Seen already some days ago, but thanks!
 
@egreg old frontespiio question. Not compilable. Do you want to have a look at it?

@Johannes_B: You can use the following mwe
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\includegraphics[width=.48\linewidth]{picture.eps}
\end{document}
Now run pdflatex and it will work.
To get an eps file you can use:
cp /usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-dist/tex/latex/mwe/example-image-a.eps /Users/marco/Desktop/test/picture.eps
 
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\includegraphics{example-image.eps}
\end{document}
@MarcoDaniel ^^^^ Doesn't work on my TL15. So something seems to have changed unnoticed to me.
 
@Johannes_B I am using TL2016
[marco@iMarco]:~:$tex -v
TeX 3.14159265 (TeX Live 2016)
 
@Johannes_B Works for me with TL 2016
 
1:16 PM
@ChristianHupfer @MarcoDaniel Another reason to update :-)
 
@Johannes_B this doesn't work on tl16 either (at least on windows): you are trying to use a graphic that is found by kpsewhich. You need to copy it in your local folder if epstopdf should work.
 
@UlrikeFischer Indeed. So I use cp /usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-dist/tex/latex/mwe/example-image-a.eps /Users/marco/Desktop/test/picture.eps or a more generally way: cp $(kpsewhich example-image-a.eps) $HOME/Desktop/test/picture.eps
 
@ChristianHupfer -- please don't insult donald duck! he at least has/had some redeeming social value, if only as a bad example.
@ChristianHupfer -- taking your comment about tex.stackexchange.com/q/355770 offline. actually, @Johannes_B and i agree quite closely on the matter of "templates". i really object to the substitution of the term "template" for "document class"; but it's not likely to change anyone else's opinion of practice. what i call a template is what is named "*_template.tex" at ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/required/amscls/doc
 
1:47 PM
@barbarabeeton We still don't have any consense with what a template is.
 
2:08 PM
@Johannes_B -- certainly not a community-wide consensus. maybe i'll write up my opinion in my text tugboat column. (would you be willing to read what i've written before it gets into print?)
 
2:25 PM
@barbarabeeton @ChristianHupfer: Barbara is so right! Please leave him alone! He is in enough trouble as it is:
 
3:19 PM
@barbarabeeton Let's called it weird class then ...
 
 
4 hours later…
6:59 PM
@barbarabeeton Yes, of course.
 
@egreg Did you ever do anything more with this? tex.stackexchange.com/a/37410/2693
