@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.
@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
