Miscellaneous syntax

Here's some miscellaneous Latex syntax in no format and not really meant for public consumption:

Latex graphics stuff (from Latex Graphics Companion)

make space for a figure:



\begin{pspicture}*[settings][baseline](x0,y0)(x1,y1) stuff


% the '*' blocks stuff out?


no space reserved:


% the '*' blocks out




%hanging indent of paragraph:

\hangindent=3pc \hangafter=1

%equation numbering:




% or \begin{eqnarray*} to not have it numbered

% \hfill and \vfill will insert space so things are spaced out - e.g. \vfill at end of slide will push all the previous stuff up to the top of the slide
