# LaTeX

## Diagrams and screen captures

To save a Ptolemy model as PDF, see http://ptolemy.berkeley.edu/ptolemyII/ptIIfaq.htm#pdf

Printing to PDF and using PDFLatex seems to work best... Acrobat can be used to eliminate white space around the image, see http://ptolemy.berkeley.edu/ptolemyII/ptIIfaq.htm#pdf

To generate EPS, use the advanced settings of a printer and under Postscript options, select EPS.

## Using LaTeX to generate UC Berkeley Letterhead

• Jonathan Sprinkle's LaTeX Page
• universityos.tar.gz "Font (for Berkeley use only)"
• "Installation file to use the UniversityOS fonts on your LaTeX installation."
• ucbletter.zip "(LaTeX class file and example)"
• "Allows you to create memos using the Berkeley format. Requires the UniversityOS font to be installed on your machine."
• pdftex was failing because it could not find the document class

### Windows

In 4/2009, I was able to use the UniversityOS font with Miktex 2.7.

1. I set the TEXMFLOCAL variable to C:\localtexmf
2. In bash, I had to change my path with
export PATH=/cygdrive/c/Program\ Files/MiKTeX\ 2.7/miktex/bin:${PATH} The reason is that otherwise the version of tex that is used is the one installed with cygwin, not the MiKTeX version. 3. I ended up running initexmf -v --mkmaps 4. To update the settings, I ran Start -> All Programs -> MiKTeX 2.7 -> Settings and in Roots, I added the C:\localtexmf to the Roots and in General, did Refresh FNDB and Update Formats ### Mac OS X To do the setup with MacTeX, I did 1. mkdir ~/texmf cd ~/texmf wget http://chess.eecs.berkeley.edu/ptexternal/wiki/uploads/Main/universityos.tar.gz wget http://chess.eecs.berkeley.edu/ptexternal/wiki/uploads/Main/ucbletter.zip tar -zxf universityos.tar.gz tar -zxf universityos-install.tar.gz unzip ucbletter.zip cd dvips/config/ ls cp fgy_config.ps config.ps cd ../../pdftex/config cp fgy_pdftex.cfg pdftex.cfg cd ../../miktex/config/ cp fgy_updmap.cfg updmap.cfg cd testUCBFonts sudo -i export TEXMFLOCAL=/Users/cxh/texmf export TEXCONFIG=/Users/cxh/texmf/pdftex/config/fgy.map export TEXINPUTS=.:/Users/cxh/texmf: export TEXPSHEADERS=/Users/cxh/texmf/fonts/type1/free/UniversityOS: pdftex testUCBFonts.tex 2. When I ran pdftex testUCBFonts.tex, I was getting mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for fgydo8r. Running updmap did not work. 1. Running gsftopk --mapfile=/Users/cxh/texmf/pdftex/config/fgy.map fgydc8r 600 creates fgydc8r.600pk in the current directory. After a bunch of fooling around, I edited /usr/texbin/mktexpk and inserted --mapfile and the path to the fgy.map file. There is probably a better way around this: gsftopk) if$ps_to_pk --mapfile /Users/cxh/texmf/pdftex/config/fgy.map -t "$NAME"; then cmd="$ps_to_pk --mapfile /Users/cxh/texmf/pdftex/config/fgy.map $NAME$DPI"
and then ran pdftex testUCBFonts.tex My environment settings were
export TEXMFLOCAL=/Users/cxh/texmf
export TEXCONFIG=/Users/cxh/texmf/pdftex/config/fgy.map
export TEXINPUTS=.:/Users/cxh/texmf:
However, I don't think it is strictly necessary to have these settings.

### Creating a UC Berkeley Letterhead letter

To generate a letter:

cd ~/texmf/latex/berkeley
pdflatex sampleLetter.tex

Note that pdftex may fail:

bash-3.2\$ pdftex sampleLetter.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.9 (MiKTeX 2.7)
entering extended mode
(sampleLetter.tex
! Undefined control sequence.
l.1 \documentclass
[11pt,letterpaper,oneside]{ucletter}
?
! Emergency stop.
l.1 \documentclass
[11pt,letterpaper,oneside]{ucletter}
! ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!
Transcript written on sampleLetter.log.
http://www.math.uiuc.edu/~randy/MA248/miktex.html suggested using latex instead of tex, so I ran pdflatex sampleLetter.tex

## Converting LaTeX to PNG

## Name Tags

Information about generating name tags for a conference. We use Avery 5390.

## Ptolemy Demos

The paper Edward A. Lee. http://www.eecs.berkeley.edu/Pubs/TechRpts/2009/EECS-2009-151.html Finite State Machines and Modal Models in Ptolemy II, Technical report, EECS Department, University of California, Berkeley, UCB/EECS-2009-151, December, 2009.

Here's how Edward did it in Latex:

\usepackage{color}

...

\begin{figure}[!b]
\centering
\href{modal/Hysteresis.htm}{\includegraphics[width=5in]{pt_modal/Figures/Hysteresis.pdf}}
\figcaption{\label{fig-Hysteresis}
A model of a thermostat with hysteresis.
The \code{Temperature Model} actor is shown in Figure
\ref{fig-TemperatureModel}.}
\end{figure}

The usepackage{hyperref} command specifies a base url, and the figure includes a link to an HTML page that Christopher generated for each model.

## LaTeX Macros for Edward's books

The Ptolemy book is in the ptpapers repository as ealpapers/ptolemy, see https://chess.eecs.berkeley.edu/ptolemy/wiki/Ptolemy/Book

Use the following macros:

\defn{term} for terms defined. Should have only 1 in the book. Use singular always. See defnn, etc.
\defnlinkm{term} to refer to a term defined elsewhere.
\pointer{term} for a term that should appear in the index.
\cite[]{ref} for citations in parens (Smith et. al, 2010).
\cite{ref} for inline citations. Smith (2010) tells us...
\class{NamedObj} for a Java class
\actor{Const} for an actor class
\actorDef{Const} for the definition of the class
\actorName{Const2} for an actor instance named Const2
\port{input} for a port named input.
\method{getContainer} for a Java method
\fixme{Comment} for stuff that remains to be done.

Notice also how to create sidebars.

Full documentation of these macros can be found in the lib/definitions.tex file.

## Style Conventions for Edward's books

### Figures

• Figures and models go in to the corresponding subdirectory for the chapter.
• Ptolemy models usually have white backgrounds, hierarchy has grey chapters. To control the background color, drag in a Utilities -> LocalPreferences and set the background color to white. Then drag the LocalPreferences icon to an area off screen.
• "figure x" should be replaced by "Figure x" (capitalize figure when referring to a particular named figure). Do not capitalize in phrases like "as shown in the figure".
• \caption should be replaced by \figcaption. Also, the \label needs to be inside the \figcaption, not outside (I think this is true of \caption as well). A typical figure:
\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=\columnwidth]{vergil/Figures/vol1Figure2-5.pdf}
\figcaption{Invoke \menu{Open Actor} on composite actors to reveal their implementation.
\label{fig:OpenActor}}
\end{figure}
• When adding citations, please include a DOI, if one is available, or if not, a URL, if one is available. This results in hyperlinks to the citations, which can be very useful.

### Definitions

• Definitions are singular, not plural.
• Common actors get defined in one place with \actordefn. Use \actor to refer to the definition.
