@yo' oh my

@PauloCereda “Parché corer cossì?” is exactly how we say here. But we say “zalo” for yellow. I guess “gialdo” is more from Trentino.

@egreg That's awesome!

@PauloCereda I don't think you can correctly pronounce “zalo”, however. ;-)

@egreg ooh challenge accepted

@DavidCarlisle undeserved, of course :)

@PauloCereda it's well deserved, as well deserved as an image from wikipedia

@DavidCarlisle: secret message poking :)

@PauloCereda the thing about secret messages is that you are not supposed to announce them on a globally readable internet page

@DavidCarlisle oh no
We ducks are not good at keeping secrets

12:25 PM
@PauloCereda Poderíamos discutir isso em um idioma que ninguém entende, então seu segredo seria seguro.

@DavidCarlisle Very good. Just s/seria/estaria.
@DavidCarlisle I am going to teach Portuguese to @egreg. :)

@PauloCereda write Italian and add some spanish ~ accents here and there?

hello, is it possible to build a texinfo file in Windows?

@antonio Pandoc, perhaps?

hmm, I will check. MikTeX texify does not seem to work
@PauloCereda: from pandoc.org/demos.html it requires makeinfo and texi2pdf and I do not have them in MikTeX

@antonio what do you want to do make an info file from it or typeset it with tex
@antonio texi2pdf is usually installed as texi2any these days I think (or at least it is in texlive)

@DavidCarlisle I have a texi file and want to build a PDF (and possibly html)

@antonio see if you have texi2any although just using tex directly is also a possibility a texinfo file is just tex

3:26 PM
@DavidCarlisle texi2any is for Windows?
@DavidCarlisle I do not have it in MikTeX

@antonio it is a perl script so should be available in anything I use the cygwin texlive on windows rather than miktex and it is installed here

not in the path
sorry let me check better
@DavidCarlisle there is no texi2any in MikTeX setup dir

@antonio I know nothing about miktex, sorry:)

@DavidCarlisle I have texify btw

@DavidCarlisle I have nothing like texi2any in my texlive(s).

3:39 PM
@UlrikeFischer so it isn't (@antonio) I think I have a direct install of texinfo from cygwin, sorry.
@UlrikeFischer @antonio the reference texinfo implementation is called texi2any and/or makeinfo: gnu.org/software/texinfo/manual/texinfo/html_node/…

@DavidCarlisle there should be a perl script to download

@antonio Ah sorry, I have no experience in that format

@DavidCarlisle @UlrikeFischer please, can you tell if texinfo.tex is somehow relevant?
texyfy claims to be the same as texi2dvi, however it is unable to find texindex

4:02 PM
@antonio downloads are all here if you want to install from scratch gnu.org/software/texinfo
@PauloCereda you should use a proper editor then you would be more used to the info format
@PauloCereda 3 years and have you reached page 4 yet?

I need this information for a project. A paper completed with TikZ, tables, eps and vps graphics, text structure, bibliography.

@DavidCarlisle oi

@PauloCereda sorry, 4 years:

@PauloCereda finished your thesis?
(I'm sure I gave you a couple of years writing time before asking if it was done:-)

@DavidCarlisle oh
@DavidCarlisle: more secret messages

4:19 PM
@PauloCereda é um segredo

@DavidCarlisle :)

@DavidCarlisle So far not super clear. texinfo-6.5.tar\texinfo-6.5\util\ has texi2any.bat and a README
texi2any.bat is just a generic perl caller. The README not even mentions texi2any.bat. There are texi2pdf.bat etc which are btw shell not perl scripts

@antonio years since I did this but as far as I remember the perl/bat/shell scripts are only a convenience and you can simply use the docuemnt as a plain tex file if you simply want to typeset it

5:21 PM
@DavidCarlisle that means you are old?

@PauloCereda no, just that I was very young once

@DavidCarlisle ooh
