Details

LyX is an advanced open source document processor running on Linux/Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X. It is called a "document processor", because unlike standard word processors, LyX encourages an approach to writing based on the structure of your documents, not their appearance.#' LyX lets you concentrate on writing, leaving details of visual layout to the software. LyX automates formatting according to predefined rule sets, yielding consistency throughout even the most complex documents. LyX produces high quality, professional output - using LaTeX, an open source, industrial strength typesetting engine, in the background.

Value

TRUE/FALSE - was the installation successful or not.
