Dear TeX hackers,
I am trying to include references in my CV with the bibunits package,
and I find that this generates an asterisk in the margin at the
beginning of each reference listing.
I have used the bibunits package with success (i.e., no asterisk)
with a different CV style file, so I am not sure what it is that is
causing this particular style file (res.cls) to interact badly with
I have found an occurrence of the same type of problem in this
archive, but I am not sure how to even begin to apply the
mysteriously simple solution to my case:
I did try the other suggestion in the archived thread, which was to
eliminate references to starred section/chapter headings (chapter*)
and the like. I found one call to a starred tabular environment in
res.cls, but, commenting out its definition (and removing my
reference to it in the tex file) failed to remove the pesky asterisk.
Below are pointers to all the files in question.
If anyone has any insight (or maybe a nice, simple CV style that
doesn't have this issue?), I'd be so amazed.
I'm reluctant to go blindly hunting around for a new CV style or,
worse, go back to typing in references by hand.
my source: http://people.csail.mit.edu/nhg/cv/nhg_cv.tex
my style file: http://people.csail.mit.edu/nhg/cv/res.cls
my bib file: http://people.csail.mit.edu/nhg/cv/nhg.bib
(my bib style file, but, i don't think this is the culprit since even
using the "plain" style also produces an asterisk: http://
and the asterisked output: http://people.csail.mit.edu/nhg/cv/nhg_cv.pdf
And, for completeness:
the no-asterisk source: http://people.csail.mit.edu/nhg/cv/nhg_res.tex
the no-asterisk style: http://people.csail.mit.edu/nhg/cv/modresume.cls
(bib is the same)
