latexdiff is fantastic!

Thank you for hosting such a great site with valuable resources. latexdiff is a great tool that I expect to be very useful as I work through versions of my Master's thesis!

Why is the above mentioned package not avail via tlmgr install pgf-umlcd and only in MiKTeX?

There seems to be a new ruby version around which produces the error: csv2latex:52:in `gsub': invalid byte sequence in US-ASCII (ArgumentError) Any idea how to fix that?

I'm happy using LyX :D but there are some things that make me feel frustated. How can I install a new style of bibliography? How can be that ctang.org doesn't have a simple general manual that explains how to's?

Works, but only with a little trick...

Thanks for this, I just started documenting my Lua code code with his. However, it did not work from the start. Itried the examples, and also they did not work 100%. Then I noticed a certain pattern, and in fact my documentation works if I insert the following at the beginning of the file:

function class() -- dummy function to get this to work return "nothing" end X = class()

Bug of feature?

I wanted to try out your ex­am­ple to see if I could com­pile it (I work with tex­maker for mac). How­ever, it shows er­rors
