# Tex F.A.Q.

### Activesideplot does not work as before

This is a little backward compatibility problem. Previously, you could use something like \activesideplot{plot}{2in}{}{Caption}, where 2in was taken as the plot height. Now you have to say \activesideplot{plot}{height=2in}{Caption} explicitly. You can use either one or both or none of width and height. If you use only one of them, the aspect ratio should be preserved by default. Some other possible keys in the argument to activeplot (supplied by the graphicx package) are:

• bb= (bounding box)
• viewport= (similar to bb. but relative to the bounding box in the encapsulated postscript)
• trim= (to crop a part of the file)
• origin= angle= (to rotate the figure)
• scale= (to scale it)
• draft= (draft=true replaces the actual figure with the file name in a box)
• command= (a Unix command to be applied to the graphics file, e.g. zcat for compressed ps)


for several available examples. (You can also submit your own example there.)

### How do I index my pages for the full-text search on the web?

Run swish-e -c congiffile on the web server. Here configfile is a configuration file. The configuration file for SEP reports is in

/public/docs/toc_html/docs-config
• The configuration file for Jon's books is in
/sepwww/pub/sep/prof/prof-config

### What bibtex databases are available?

The SEP bibtex databases are located in

\$TEXMF/bibtex/bib/sep/

. The most useful ones are SEP.bib - SEP reports and theses, SEG.bib - SEG cumulative database, and MISC.bib - miscellaneous items. To use bibtex references in your paper, include something like

\bibliographystyle{sep}
\bibliography{SEP,SEG,paper}

where paper.bib is your own database in the paper directory. To search databases, run

bibindex [keyword] [database]
bibindex stolt SEG

or use the web search
