Meaning of CRAPTEX

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

/krap'tekh/ (University of York, England) Term of abuse used to describe tex and latex when they don't work (when used by TeXhackers), or all the time (by everyone else). The non-TeX enthusiasts generally dislike it because it is more verbose 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.
