some quick notes that result from using LaTeX :) they might save you time and anger, or they might make you laugh. both reactions welcome, improvments and suggestions are even more welcome.

\usepackage{natbib}

natbib ist wesentlich stabiler als harvard. harvard hat auch probleme mit hyperref, also lieber nur natbib verwenden und lernen. irgendwo im document (nicht in der preamble!!):

\bibliographystyle{agsm}

und das .bib file referenzieren:

\bibliography{filename-without-extension}

wichtig auch, dass man alle urls in den bibtex entries am besten sauber jeweils in ein \url{} schmeisst.

-- How To embed file listings --

package listings runterladen, und dann in der preamble:

\usepackage{listings}

wo das listing dann hinsoll:

\lstinputlisting[caption={Caption},label={Label}]{path/to/filename}

evtl in die preamble (damit das auch gscheit ausschaut):

\lstset{%
showstringspaces=false,
frame={tb},
lineskip=-1pt,
extendedchars=true,
basicstyle=\footnotesize\ttfamily,
numbers=left,
tabsize=8,
breaklines}
