Cheers peeps, I'm glad they're useful and it's a big up to hear feedback. The 'diagram is the program' idea works, it goes across langauge. Some guys translated to Spanish and Portuguese which makes me feel good. I'm not sure where these fit in the wiki structure but the wiki building activity and language access for pd users in dozens of langauges is pretty exciting. . Could you just mirror the html in the right place?
@Hardoff, did you find a place for tutorials in pd-wiki yet? I understand what Hans said, but can't seem to find what I want , the part that isn't "what is a [thing]?" but "How do you...?" What do you do about attaching snapshots and example files to html, or are you using all ascii diags, or is the whole point that all the content *IS* pd files, so tutorials should always be pd files... I don't pay attention to the wiki threads on the list, sorry if its old
POD for definite dubtub, then I sort out an ISBN and Amazon it. "This Autmn" ...I know I'm slippin I didn't realise there's so much to typesetting or how hard it is to make a textbook, but I'm being really serious and working at some every day. Thanks for the ideas on a manufacturer .
Alberto, I joined tex-hacks list - the package I chose is memoir (but i'm still working with ordinary book class) and using side captioning for pd diagrams (lots of them). It works fine so far, but I might have to email you to pick your brains sometime:) I think I've mastered floats and can get diagrams where I want, and now have a proper build script that uses gnuplot to grab graphs etc. Do you know anything about pstricks or any other tricks that might be good for pd diagrams?
