MusicTeX - Using TeX to write polyphonic or
instrumental music (PostScript - 378 kilobytes)
Version 5.01 - February 1, 1994
Daniel Taupin, Laboratoire de Physique des Solides
MusicTeX is a set of TeX macros to typeset polyphonic, orchestral or polyphonic music. Therefore, it is mainly supposed to be used to type wide scores - just because true musicians seldom like to have to frequently turn pages - and this is not really compatible with LaTeX's standard page formats.
Boedicker's LaTeX Resume Tips
Writing a resume using LaTeX is preferable to writing it using Microsoft Word, or something similar, for a number of reasons:
- When printed (as Postscript or PDF), LaTeX has a more polished, professional look than a document produced by a word processor.
- A resume done in LaTeX will stand out, since most everyone else will use Microsoft Word, and probably the same wizard/template.
- Convert your LaTeX to PDF, which has free readers for almost any platform, and you are not forcing the recipient to own the proper version of expensive proprietary software to read it.
- LaTeX gives you complete control over the layout of your document.
- LaTeX can be converted to a number of different formats.
- LaTeX itself and many converters, viewers, and add-on packages are free. A resume done with LaTeX (the Computer Modern font anyway) might mark you as a member of the scientific/research/academic community. Depending on the job, it could help your chances.
- LaTeX is plain text and can be easily version-controlled using CVS or other version control software.
- LaTeX is flexible. You can use any platform you want, and any editor you want.
