mik­tex – A free dis­tri­bu­tion for MS-Win­dows

A dis­tri­bu­tion of and friends for Win­dows 2000, XP, Vista and Win­dows 7, as well as Win­dows Server 2003 and 2008. Fea­tures in­clude easy in­stal­la­tion and con­fig­u­ra­tion, and full , and Cont sup­port. MiK in­cludes a set of “canned” dis­tri­bu­tions, up to in­stal­la­tion of ‘ev­ery­thing there is’. Users may up­date their in­stal­la­tion man­u­ally, or they can al­low MiK to in­stall new stuff au­to­mat­i­cally (as needed), from the net.

A com­mand-line util­ity, ‘tex­ify’, sim­pli­fies the pro­duc­tion of DVI (or PDF) doc­u­ments by au­to­mat­i­cally in­vok­ing (pdf), Makein­dex, and BibTeX as many times as nec­es­sary to pro­duce a DVI (PDF) file with sorted in­dices and all cross-ref­er­ences re­solved.

A “portable” dis­tri­bu­tion is avail­able, for users to carry in their pocket…

Users of MiK com­monly con­trol their work with an ed­i­tor/shell; many are avail­able, such as the free texnic­cen­ter and the share­ware winedt.
