As an Org-mode fan I would really like to have these docs in Org-mode, would make everything easier, but then you need to prepare the export to LaTeX such that the outcome looks as professional as the Springer LaTeX templates I used for the books. Its possible, but likely not easy and time consuming. I do have both books as .txt files (as the only two files in a directory) on my machine, for searching them in parrallel with ,----[ C-h f helm-do-grep RET ] | helm-do-grep is an interactive autoloaded Lisp function in | `helm-grep.el'. | | It is bound to C-x c M-g s, <menu-bar> <tools> <Helm> <Tools> <Grep>. | | (helm-do-grep) | | Preconfigured helm for grep. | Contrarily to Emacs `grep', no default directory is given, but | the full path of candidates in ONLY. | That allow to grep different files not only in `default-directory' but anywhere | by marking them (C-<SPACE>). If one or more directory is selected | grep will search in all files of these directories. | You can also use wildcard in the base name of candidate. | If a prefix arg is given use the -r option of grep (recurse). | The prefix arg can be passed before or after start file selection. | See also `helm-do-grep-1'. `---- Its very convenient to be able to simply copy found code/text from an Emacs buffer then. Don't remember how I converted the docs, but I could send them as PM attachment if you send me a private email address. > ---------------------------------------------------------------------- > From: Thorsten Jolitz > <tjol...@gmail.com>; > To: <firstname.lastname@example.org>; > Subject: Re: Documentation again > Sent: Tue, Aug 12, 2014 9:33:36 AM > > > Alabhya Singh <alab...@yahoo.com> > writes: > > > I support Henrik and even would request the docs to be available in > > "universal" and simple formats: > > 1.
