CV in Latex

Since I uploaded my CV, several people asked me how did I produced the layout of it. The answer is with Latex. Here is the “library” (not mine) and my CV file, as it was on 2012. There are plenty of comments for explanation. The page could not fit the code, so I broke some lines and used the comment “% The next line should be here!” and once the “% The next two lines should be here!”, when needed. If you see some lines overflow, that means that this is just text. In order to see how I included an image of me, click here.

%
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
% You can have multiple style options the legal options ones are:
%
%   centered	the name and address are centered at the top of the
%		page (default)
%
%   line	the name is the left with a horizontal line then 
%		the address to the right
%
%   overlapped	the section titles overlap the body text (default)
%
%   margin	the section titles are to the left of the body text
%		
%   11pt	use 11 point fonts instead of 10 point fonts
%
%   12pt	use 12 point fonts instead of 10 point fonts
%
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
%   Commands
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
%   \Resume	prints the word resume but typeset nicely
%
%   \newsectionwidth{dimen}
%		defines the amount of space the labels extend
%		into the left margin.
%		DO NOT TRY to change any of the dimensions
%		yourself.  You will probably confuse the style file.
%
%   \name{text} defines your name
%
%   \address{text}
%		defines your address
%		this can be called twice if you have two addresses
%		use \\'s to indicate where either line breaks or
%		comas should go
%
%   \opening	this prints your name and address at that spot
%		this is not normally needed, as \begin{resume}
%		does this but is provided just in case you need
%		to do something odd
%
%   \begin{resume} ... \end{resume}
%		all of the resume should go inside of this
%		environment
%
%   \section{text}
%		This prints 'text' in the left hand margin.
%		Its exact placement depends on what the style 
%		options has been set to. (overlapped or margin)
%		You should use \\ to start a new line.	If the
%		style option is margin, the \\ is converted
%		to a space.
%		To use this in any of the list environments, put
%		the \section after the \item[] but before the 
%		text.
%		Eg.
%		\begin{itemize}
%		\item\section{text}
%		text
%		\end{itemize}
%
%   \begin{ncolumn}{n} ... \end{ncolumn}
%		creates a tabular environment with n equally
%		spaced columns.  Separate columns by & and
%		end them with \\
%
%   \begin{position} ... \end{position}
%		this is used to print a job description.  There should
%		be only one job description in it.  Information
%		related to the job (such as title, dates...) will
%		be printed.
%
%   \begin{format} ... \end{format}
%		used to change the default format for the position
%		environment.  Within it the recognized commands are:
%		\title{option}
%		\employer{option}
%		\location{option}
%		\dates{option}
%		\body
%		\\
%		where option is one of l,r,c standing for left, right, center.
%		The format will eventually be used to make several
%		tabular environments and you are defining the number of columns
%		and the placement of text within the columns of the tabulars.
%		Each row is terminated by a \\.  Any number of options can 
%		be on a line, they will each be set in their own columns.
%		Any of the options except \body may be left out.
%
%		Eg.
%		\begin{format}
%		\title{l}\employer{r}\\
%		\dates{r}\\
%		\body\\
%		\location{l}\\
%		\end{format}
%
%		In this example the title and employer information
%		are set in 2 columns left justified and right justified
%		respectively.  Then the date is set right justified.
%		Then the body is set.  Then the location is set left
%		justified.
%
% \employer{text}
% \title{text}
% \dates{text}
% \location{text}
%		declare text for the next invocation of the position
%		environment
%
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
% Glue
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
%
% sectionskip	the amount of horizontal before a section
%
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
% Dimensions
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
%
% sectionwidth	the amount that the section titles go in the
%		left margin
%
% resumewidth	the width of the total resume from the left
%		margin to the right.  Don't use textwidth
%
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
% Definitions
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
%
% sectionfont	the font used to print section titles
%		use \renewcommand to change it
%
% namefont	the font used to print your name
%		use \renewcommand to change it
%
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
% THINGS TO DO
%
% add lm,rm options to format style to allow things to be placed
% in the left or right margin respectivly
%
% add capability so that \body doesn't have to be proceeded (followed)
% by a \\ allowing part of the description (eg. location) to be the
% first (last) thing of the body
%
% clean up the list building procedures
%
% write docs to tell people how to use this
