The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, June 11.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   LyX, Meld, Asymptote

   This month, we have three presenters giving short (5-10 minute)
   demonstrations of some software that they have found
   interesting. Adam Thompson will demonstrate LyX, a WYSIVRTWYG
   (What You See Is Vaguely Related To What You Get) document
   creation and editing front-end for TeX and LaTeX. Trevor Cordes
   will demonstrate Meld, a graphical diff viewer that's designed
   for those of us who will never be comfortable with text-based
   diff output syntax. And finally, Michael Doob will demonstrate
   Asymptote, a markup language for producing high-quality
   graphics, which, like TeX, separates the concepts of markup
   from presentation, allowing graphics to be drawn with very high

   The June RTFM will feature Gilbert Detillieux talking about the
   dpkg(1), apt-get(8), apt-cache(8) and aptitude(8) commands,
   used for package management in Debian and similar Linux

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our *NEW* meeting location for this month: Room 1L06,
   Lockhart Hall, University of Winnipeg, entrance on Ellice Ave.
   between Spence St. and Balmoral St.

   Parking is available on the surrounding streets and in the lots
