latex: Negative indent in an enumerated list inside a theorem?

How do I do in latex, a negative indent on an enumerated list inside a Theorem?

I have a math book where sometimes the theorems are written like this:

If all cows are spherical and either:
         (1) the moon is made of green cheese,
      or (2) there are canals on Mars
then pluto is a planet.

How do I copy this style in latex, specificly the negative indent
on the "or"?

There may be a more elegant way to do this, but here's one way:

If all cows are spherical and either:
   \item the moon is made of green cheese,
   \item \OR there are canals on Mars
then pluto is a planet.

tamil latex
Bonjour, Is there a way to typeset tamil words, using LaTeX, in a text. I tried sinhala package but it seems that this package is incomplete: when you read the manual it seems that putting the command "#TAMIL" will switch the indica preprocessor to Tamil language but I can only get errors messages while latex-compiling the result....

negative number evaluating greater than string.size()
Hi, below is example code which demonstrates a problem I have encountered. When passing a number to a function I compare it with a string's size and then take certain actions, unfortunately during the testing of it I discovered that negative numbers were being treated as if they were > 0. I compiled the following on mingw compiler/dev c++/windows xp. If I replace string.size() for a ordinary number it behaves as expected? I notice string.size() returns size type and not an int but how do I deal with that? Thanks in advance for any help #include <iostream> #include <stdlib....

LaTeX calendar package, yearly and monthly

enumerate and \item problems with []
I'm using Koma-Script (scrreprt) class. When I write something like \begin{enumerate} \item [A long sentence.] Set $preempt\leftarrow false$. Let $p = CUR_{cpu}$ be the currently executing process on $cpu$. \end{enumerate} the layout breaks. \item behaves as within the description environment - it omits the number and typesets the whole text between [], without any line breaking at all. Question: how do I start the item text within enumerate environment with '[' ? Thanks. Zeljko Vrba <> schrieb: > I'm using Koma-Script (scrre...

Linebreaks with itemize and user-defined theorems
The input \begin{itemize} \item[Item Number One] \begin{proof} Proof here. \end{proof} \end{itemize} results in the following: Item Number One. Proof. Proof here. There is no problem, since the number heading ("Item Number One") lines up with the Proof. line. However, the other headings that can be user-defined with \newtheorem in the amsthm package: \begin{itemize} \item[Item Number Two] \begin{thm} Theorem here \end{thm} \end{itemize} results in the following: Item Number Two [line break] Theorem here This is unsightly because the item titles are already on a separate colu...

using info complete on lists #2
I was wondering, can I use [info complete] to check if a list is well formed? It looks like I can but I'm not sure if there are downsides to this. I just tested: % set foo [list "{" this is "a test" {"}] % info complete $foo 1 % info complete [join $foo] 0 so it does look like it works. Is there any case where a malformed list can pass [info complete] or a well formed list fails [info complete]? slebetman wrote: > >I was wondering, can I use [info complete] to check if a list is well >formed?

Object in list invalidation question
Hello, Consider the following situation: std::list <int> numbers; numbers.push_back(5); int * ptr = &(*(numbers.begin())); // Work on the list numbers.push_back(7); numbers.push_back(12); // etc. My question is: will ptr always point to valid memory provided the only operations performed on the list are to add to it (and ptr isn't reassigned, etc)? Given the obvious implementation of a linked list, then yes, but is it actually guaranteed (implicitly or otherwise) by the standard? Thanks!

Filled boxes and latex
Hi! I want to create a bar chart with filled boxes and include this in my latex-file (because of using same fonts and formula-styles all over my Master's Thesis). With 'set terminal x11' everything works fine, but with 'set terminal latex' there are only boxes with different frames created. Also I tried different fill-styles, but none worked. I'm looking for a way to fill my boxes with section-linigs or with shades of grey. Can you give me any hints, how I could solve my problem?

list-style-image margin problem

How to use negative space with sections?
Hello, I'd like to put my sections above normal text, ie. above the top of the text area. I thought of two solutions: i) find a way to use real negative space (which usually only means not to indent the forst line afterwards), or ii) put the section names into the header only, yet only the first time a new section was introduced. I have no idea how to implement the second, yet I've been trying to succeed with the first one without any luck. I use the memoir class.

CV in LaTeX
Hi! Sorry if this is a FAQ (if it is, could you please point me to where it is?). I need to make my CV in LaTeX. So far, I have only found ugly templates on the net. The result I currently have is I would like something more fancy with colors, frames (eg. having a coloured bar in the background of each title - and not just behind the words of the title but on the whole line) etc. What would you recommend?

Standard Library sort functions on Linked Lists
Hi all, I was wandering if there was a way to use standard library sort functions such as heapsort on linked lists. I noticed that the qsort had a qsort_r function that would allow you to specifiy the argument being passed to qsort's callback function, I was thinking something like this could be done for heapsort, or modify the call back function to populate the array dynamically. The overall goal here is to use a in-place algorithm that does not require all the data it is working on to be in main memory. I am also trying to avoid re-inveting the wheel a bit. Any advice would...
