in the last decade computer programming for undergrad engineers has  
also been phased out in favor of matlab or other variants.  meanwhile  
tex/latex is still laboring with usability difficulties for control  
of figure/table inclusion, and doesn't integrate with other  
applications such as spreadsheets or graphics editors.
