Hello:

I tried at some point to reduce the orgcard to an org-mode file.  I
have a copy, but it's way out of date.  Org is changing too fast for
me to keep up.  It's perhaps worthwhile, though, and maybe useful.  It
is to me. It's attached.


Actually, the orgcard is changing only very slowly.

I started by running, I think, untex on orgcard.tex, then formatting
the output by hand.

I'd like to use the orgcard.txt file that's included in the org- mode
source.
I like being able to search through a text file for relevant keyboard
shortcuts.

It doesn't seem like it's been updated since org version 6.10.

I tried running make doc, but I don't think that orgcard.txt is
generated in
the "make doc" task.

AFAIK It is not.

Is orgcard.txt generated from orgcard.tex? If so, can anyone tell me
how
to do it?

I presume that it is converted by hand. I tried a few automated tools
(pdftotext, latex2html + w3m) but they all give very bad results.

I would recommend to either

 a) compare the existing orgcard.pdf and orgcard.txt and update the
    existing orgcard.txt accordingly or
b) cut'n'paste the text from a pdf viewer into emacs and do some magic
    with rectangles (as the text is in three columns) to achieve the
    desired result.

Then submit the newest orgcard.txt as a patch so you will not have to
keep it locally.

Thanks
Christian


Very cool.  I want to contribute back to org-mode, but I don't
want to manually modify orgcard.txt :-)

I will write a script that can parse the orgcard.tex file and pull out the
goodies that we want in the orgcard.txt file.

Regardless of whether that script is accepted into the org-mode base, I can
run the script when there's an update to orgcard.tex, then submit the
updated orgcard.txt.

I should have a quick & dirty script (Perl) done by next week.

Thanks,
--Nate
