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