comment Multiple routers connected to switch — how to connect to the right one using netctl
Ah, I thought netctl actually sent a signal to the router at the indicated Gateway address and waited until the request was approved, regardless of using dhcp or static.

comment Multiple routers connected to switch — how to connect to the right one using netctl
Thanks! I'll look into that. As for the last bit, no I didn't expect it to work. Using IP=dhcp it usually takes 2-4 sec for netctl to establish a connection. With IP=static it seemed almost instantaneously, which I found a bit suspicious. That's why I tried something I knew shouldn't work, but was rather surprised that netctl didn't complain about it.

comment Ignore escape characters when printing string in shell script
Good point, and because of this construction it looks clearer, using the newlines and indentation.

comment Ignore escape characters when printing string in shell script
Ah of course, the single (hard) quotes! Thank you. I didn't know about the cat -construction, why is it safer than the echo command?

I realised I didn't translate the Dutch phrases. When calling the script you have to give two arguments: the LaTeX expression itself and the filename, without extension. For instance: sh .LaTeX2PNG.sh "B_n(f;x) = \sum_{r=0}^n f \left( \frac{r}{n} \right) {n \choose r} x^r (1-x)^{n-r}" Bernstein
