Hi
Can we put caption like a, b,c for three figures side by side
in this code below
\begin{figure}[htp]

\centering
\includegraphics[width=.3\textwidth]{i/houghtrain.png}\hfill
\includegraphics[width=.3\textwidth]{i/houghframe.png}\hfill
\includegraphics[width=.3\textwidth]{i/houghspace.png}

\caption{default}
\label{fig:figure3}

\end{figure}

@BAYMAX Look at Section Subfigure here: it.overleaf.com/learn/latex/…

oh i see cool!
thanks!

@BAYMAX You're welcome!

@samcarter_looks_forward_TUG'21 I have another super secret :)

9:16 AM
@UlrikeFischer ooh more secrets
@DavidCarlisle holiday quack

@PauloCereda cooked breakfast

@DavidCarlisle oh no

9:40 AM
@PauloCereda ;-)
@PauloCereda ... And the Tikzling forth shall stand!

@UlrikeFischer ooh

9:52 AM
@samcarter_looks_forward_TUG'21 Regarding the path issue, maybe the user could create a e.g, texlive.sh file in /etc/profile.d with export PATH=/path/to/texlive:\$PATH. This might help too: stackoverflow.com/questions/14637979/…

Does anyone happen to know how to dump a file as its Unicode codepoints? In the customary hex format.

@FaheemMitha You could use a page like onlineutf8tools.com/convert-utf8-to-code-points.

@TeXnician I should have said on Unix-like systems. Preferably a command-line tool.
I'm using Debian 10.10 (buster).

@FaheemMitha A web page works even on Unix-like systems ;)

@TeXnician It does, but I prefer to do things locally.

@PauloCereda Thanks! I passed the link on

10:46 AM
@TeXnician No, I haven't. I was mostly looking on Unix SE. Thanks for the pointer.

Well, 5 secs of using a search engine sometimes turns out to be useful :D
And of course @PauloCereda would approve, there's a Perl suggestion as top answer ;)

@TeXnician I did do a search.
@TeXnician Those answer are all very complicated. I'm surprised there is no simpler was to do something so simple.

@TeXnician oh no

@FaheemMitha Complicated? The perl answer is very clear, in my view. More simple than iterating over the chars is probably hard to find. And the second solution with a few pipes is very well commented and easily understandable. What would you imagine to be simpler? (You like to stress you are on a Unix-like system; remember Unix philosophy is “do one thing and do it well”.)

@TeXnician I didn't stress it. Just mentioned it. And I thought that something like this should be possible more directly from some utility. Without programming.

10:55 AM
@FaheemMitha well, inspecting hex is sort of programming :)

@PauloCereda Given how much of a thing Unicode is, and also given that the hex representation seems to be everyone's favorite, I just assumed there would be a way of getting it from a file without fuss.
Anyway, the top answer (the Perl one) works, so I upvoted it.

@PauloCereda there is new attendee in the TUG list ;-)

@UlrikeFischer ooh
@UlrikeFischer ooh Thomas Bär, Erlangen, Germany?

@PauloCereda no ;-) look at F

@UlrikeFischer ooh Bär Backup Crew

@UlrikeFischer -- Oh, my goodness! But I see that, although Frank Mittelbach is listed as speaking, he's apparently not attending. I suppose it would be considered ill-humored if I were to suggest that he do so.

@barbarabeeton he's also interviewed!

Does anyone feel like commenting on this? I'm considering posting this on StackOverflow, but I thought I would first ask if I was doing something obviously wrong.

8:26 PM
@PauloCereda are you ok with me posting "Oh, and we got @PauloCereda" in tex.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/8818/…?
@UlrikeFischer 6 seconds late :( Wanted to write essentially the same: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/606270/…

@Skillmon so slow

Would you use the beamer docuemntclass for presentations at alma mater or at school or switch to PowerPoint? I believe that PowerPoint is indispensable in such cases, what do you think?

@Schubladenzieher Hold a few of my talks with PowerPoint, a few with beamer. If there is a template I must adhere to, I use the software in which the template was provided (unless I got enough spare time to develop a beamer template). Boils down to: I prefer beamer if I have the choice.

9:12 PM
@JosephWright does the beamer class option onlyslideswithnotes actually exists? it is mentioned once in the docu with "see below" but there it no description.

@FaheemMitha The for in loop runs until the first return value is false. Since the second row starts with NULL, (which is represented as nil) the second row is interpreted as the end marker and not a real row, so it isn't printed. Since it already had an end marker, the function isn't called again to close the cursor.

10:04 PM
@FaheemMitha hexdump (well that's bytes not unicode points)
