Java JAVA Quick Reference41 KJava is a high-level programming language developed by Sun Microsystems. Java was originally called OAK, and was designed for handheld devices and set-top boxes. Oak was unsuccessful so in 1995 Sun changed the name to Java and modified the language to take advantage of the burgeoning World Wide Web.
Java is an object-oriented language similar to C++, but simplified to eliminate language features that cause common programming errors. Java source code files (files with a .java extension) are compiled into a format called byte code (files with a .class extension), which can then be executed by a Java interpreter. Compiled Java code can run on most computers because Java interpreters and runtime environments, known as Java Virtual Machines (VMs), exist for most operating systems, including UNIX, the Macintosh OS, and Windows. Byte code can also be converted directly into machine language instructions by a just-in-time compiler (JIT).
Java is a general purpose programming language with a number of features that make the language well suited for use on the World Wide Web. Small Java applications are called Java applets and can be downloaded from a Web server and run on your computer by a Java-compatible Web browser, such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer.

TeX Reference Card171 K

TeX is a typesetting system written by Donald E. Knuth, who says in the Preface to his book on TeX that it is "intended for the creation of beautiful books - and especially for books that contain a lot of mathematics". It is a fully programmable macro language used to specify how a document should be typeset. High level features for optical mark-up, as represented by Plain TeX, allow one to build additional levels leading to full logical mark-up.

Joseph H. Silverman
Updated! AMSTeX Reference Card 1.3110 KAt the moment, AMSTeX is one of the most widespread macro packages for logical mark-up. This package, introduced by the American Mathematical Society (AMS) is built on top of Plain TeX to greater or lesser extents and the user can use the optical mark-up of Plain TeX in addition to logical mark-up if desired. This results in the effect that the author can use a mixture of structural information and explicit layout information.

Bash Quick Reference380 KBash (The Bourn Again Shell) is the shell of the GNU operating system. Bash is an sh-compatible shell that incorporates useful features from the Korn Shell (ksh) and C Shell (csh). It is intended to conform to the IEEE POSIX P1003.2/ISO 9945.2 Shell and Tools standard.
It offers functional improvements over sh for both programming and interactive use; these include command line editing, unlimited size command history, job control, shell functions and aliases, indexed arrays of unlimited size, and integer arithmetic in any base from two to sixty-four. In addition, most sh scripts can be run by Bash without modification.
