### Latex: \rput* not rotating tex

• Email
• Follow

I'm placing a graph onto a page and want to label the vertical axes with
text running along the axes, i.e vertical

I understood \rput*[]{90}(x,y){some text} would do this.

Unfortunately it doesn't and I can work out what the problem is.
Assistance sought.

TIA

Currently is print  'xtension, e mm.' but horizontally

Latex excerp is below

\psset{xunit=10mm, yunit=5mm}
\begin{pspicture}(2,10)(14,35)
\scalebox{1 1}{
\psaxes*[Ox=9,Oy=15,Dx=1,Dy=1](9,15)(15,15)(9,33)
\psdots(10.0,16)(10.5,18)(11.0,22)(11.5,25)(12.0,26)(12.5,30)
\rput[c](11.5,12.5){mass, M grams}
\rput*[l]{L}(7.0,20){Extension, e mm.}
}
\end{pspicture}

From LaTeX to TeX
Greetings! As I get more confident with LaTeX and strive to do more and more complex things (which I know are possible, after seeing), I seem to come across a lot of TeX commands. Is this supposed to happen? Shouldn't LaTeX wrap all of TeX's functionality? And if not, what's the proper way to include these commands? Since more people must have come across this stage, could someone point me to useful resources on LaTeX - TeX integration?

tex or latex?
I wish to learn tex. Can someone advise which is easier to learn and which is better - tex or latex? And where can I find a beginner's tutorial on any of these?

on tex and latex
Hi there. I have a question more strictly about latex, but the only group I found on my news server is alt.sex.fetish.latex. I've been reading the TeXbook, and I now I've been wondering why we have a latex executable in the distribution of latex. My distribution is pdfetex which seems to replace tex entirely. Reading the TeXbook, it seems that TeX, as designed in the book, seems powerful enough to allow abstractions written in pure TeX code. Apparently, there's something called e-TeX which pdfetex is a derivative, so I suppose there are extensions on the capabilities of Knuth...

Tex and LaTex
I am looking for BSD compatible versions of Tex/LaTex and the usual supporting programs/macros that support the typsetting languages. Knuth's homepage led me to CTAN and TUG, but the TexLive distribution seems to be for Linux. Is there a FreeBSD compatible version, and if so, where can I find it?

cygwin latex problem: latex.exe points to pdfetex.exe and not to tex.exe , why?
hi; I think my PC is possessed with some spirit that is playing tricks on me. 2 days ago I made complete new fresh installation of cygwin 1.5.18 (latest) which includes complete tex installation. I always select to install everything. now, when I run the command latex, it invokes pdfetex instead: ----------------------- $which latex /usr/bin/latex$ ls -l /usr/bin/latex lrwxrwxrwx 1 win Users 11 Jul 11 23:33 /usr/bin/latex -> pdfetex.exe --------------------------- when I go to the earlier cygwin installation (I copied that to the side before), I see it was pointing to tex.exe i...

TeX/LaTeX Survey
Several years ago, I posted a TeX/LaTeX survey, It was down for a couple of years for various reasons not under my control. Now, it is up again. Therefore I solite your opinions on TeX/LaTeX.

Hello all, After today's unveiling of the iPad, I was wondering if it will be possible in the future to have a full fledge TeX implementation for iPhone OS to run on iPad. For those who use Pages or similar products, there will be available tools to compose documents. For those of us who use TeX/LaTeX and will own an iPad, a complete TeX implementation can prove very helpful. From what I read, the CPU power should be more than enough. What are your thoughts on this subject? Has anyone tried to make TeX Live run on iPhone OS? Best, Hooman Javidnia On Jan 27, 8:50=A0pm, Hooman <hooman...

A successor to TeX/Latex?
Hi all, I shall speak the heresy unto ye. I find TeX code (the programming part) almost unreadable, in part because I did not RTFM, but I never did because as useful as TeX/Latex are, I believe there is something inherently problematic in the design of TeX. But I must ask, has anyone here ever thought that same, that perhaps TeX is not well designed and perhaps there is need for developing an alternative to TeX wherein the programming part is more easy to digest? For instance, one could take a hint from PHP, which has textual sections and code sections completely separated rather than inte...

TeX (or LaTeX) under Linux
Hello.

I rescently got a job as a research assistant, where one of my primary duties was to get a grossly large software construct to run on a brand new fresh cluster (running linux of course), and also to program a large software package that would work with the output from this large construct.

Plain TeX in LaTeX

With this little ranting about LaTeX & Co, I would just like to spark the discussion as to where Latex & Co should go. I have long hesitated whether or not I should release these ramblings into the public, because I didn't want to tread on anybody's toes, or frustrate anybody (or get flamed ;-) ). I have been using LaTeX for about 20 years, and I produced many papers and 2 books with it. All of them were in the area of computer science. I am still fairly happy with LaTeX. However, from my experience, there are a few major issues. Please don't get me wrong when reading t...

Limitations of LaTeX/TeX
Speaking as a long time LaTeX user, these, in my opinion are the three most serious drawbacks: 1. Fonts. Adding new fonts is **such** a pain. If you open a standard word processing software, there are several fonts to choose from. But in LaTeX, even switching to times requires some work (especially if there are equations). One gets really tired of CM fonts after sometime . . . 2. Supported graphics formats. Normally you can only use .ps and .eps files. These are vector graphics formats and are unsuited for bitmapped images (photographs). Also, many applications produce bad .eps files that ha...

TeX and LaTeX history
Hello, I'm just curious... When were TeX and LaTeX first released? I don't want to know the exact day-month-year, the year alone will suffice. I read the TeX Wikipedia article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TeX) but it is not very clear... TeX? 1977? 1978? LaTeX? 1983? 1984? 1985? My only certainties are: TeX 1.0 : 1983 TeX 3.0 : 1990 (taken from ftp://tug.ctan.org/pub/tex-archive/systems/knuth/errata/errorlog.tex) Thanks. fctk wrote: > Hello, > > I'm just curious...
