Latex – Splitting the page into two colomns

To make the whole document to have multiple columns –  \documentclass[11pt,twocolumn]{article}

To start a new page with two column – \twocolumn

To define the distance between the two columns – \setlength{\columnsep}{distance}

If you need a line to separate the columns – \setlength{\columnseprule}{thickness}

Using the rupee symbol is LaTeX

First download tfrupee.zip from here

unzip tfrupee.zip  
cd tfrupee/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/type1/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/type1/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/afm/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/afm/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/tfm/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/tfm/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/map/dvips/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/map/dvips/  
sudo cp -rv fonts/source/tfrupee/ /usr/share/texmf/fonts/source/

Adding C++ code snippets in LaTeX using “listings”

We will always have to use code snippets in LaTeX.  The method I use to implement this is using the package listings.

I add an example here.


and later

  // Set up FW Lite for automatic loading of CMS libraries
  // and data formats.   As you may have other user-defined setup
  // in your rootlogon.C, the CMS setup is executed only if the CMS
  // environment is set up.
  TString cmsswbase = getenv("CMSSW_BASE");
  if (cmsswbase.Length() > 0) {
    // The CMSSW environment is defined (this is true even for FW Lite)
    // so set up the rest.
    cout << "Loading FW Lite setup." << endl;
