/krap'tekh/ (University of York, England) Term of abuse used to describe TeX
when they don't work (when used by TeXhackers), or all the time (by everyone else). The non-TeX enthusiasts generally dislike it because it is more verbose than other formatters (e.g. troff
) and because (particularly if the standard Computer Modern fonts are used) it generates vast output files.
