TEXLIVE (Utility)


TEXLive is a complete document production system including latex, pdflatex, xelatex, xdvi and a myriad of other familiar tex tools. The sharcnet installation is complete. It provides a comprehensive TeX system with binaries for most flavors of Unix, including GNU/Linux, and also Windows. TEXLive includes all the major TeX-related programs, macro packages, and fonts that are free software, including support for many languages around the world. A texlive module is provided on sharcnet to make a more recent version of tex available on all all x86_64 systems than is available with the operating system version. MacTEX for Mac OS X is an extension of TEXLive which adds a native Mac OS X installer and other Mac applications to TEX Live hence should be generally compatible.
