The easiest way to view the manual is by visiting:

Since the last update there have been many changes. Among them:
* Entries for \openin, \openout, \message, \write, \write18.
* Section on fontenc.
* Section on math delimiters.
* Describe -output-directory option.
* Section on xr.
* Section on expressions.
* Entry on \contentsline.

There is a separately maintained French translation of this manual; see
https://ctan.org/pkg/latex2e-help-texinfo-fr. There is also a Spanish
translation, which is in great need of a volunteer to bring it up to
date. If you are interested, please contact us.

Suggestions, bug reports, all discussion welcome. Mailing list
