LaTeX source code editor

Kile is a LaTeX source editor, TeX shell, and gnuplot frontend for KDE 3. It integrates many tools needed to develop documents with LaTeX. The principal LaTex tags can be inserted directly with the "LaTeX", "Math" and "Greek" menus, and LaTeX-related programs can be launched via the "Tools" menu. Kile includes a "structure view" of a document for easier navigation: by clicking on an item in the "Structure" frame, you can jump directly to the corresponding part of a document. The "Messages/Log File" frame lets users see information about processes and the logfile after a LaTeX compilation; The "Next Latex Error" and "Previous Latex Error" commands let you reach the LaTeX errors detected by Kile in the log file. The program also has a gnuplot front end.
