I finished reading Writing Tools: 55 Essential Strategies for Every Writer by Roy Peter Clark yesterday. It is a pretty decent book on how to write and how to construct effective text. For the kind of writing I do, it isn’t terribly relevant; a lot of the tricks are more relevant for fiction writers or journalists, but there are some good tricks in there for how to construct impact-full sentences and paragraphs. There wasn’t so much I haven’t read before, but it was still an enjoyable read.
I’m writing on a tutorial on how to use Pandoc and Markdown to create documents. I am working on a section on cross referencing right now, but I’m not sure how people install the pandoc-crossref filter. I use brew on my Mac, and can install it from that. I know you can also install it using cabal from the Haskel platform. But how do people install it on other platforms?
If you have installed pandoc-crossref on Linux or Windows, I would love to hear how you did it.
