neat trick!

By , on [atom feed]

I just learned a new trick: the "texdoc" program automatically finds and displays information for LaTeX packages. On my shiny Mac, using the MacTeX distribution, I can type commands like the following:

texdoc geometry
texdoc tikz
texdoc jvlisting

This shows the documentation for the corresponding package as a PDF file.
