Re: [Framers] Are there limits on Conditional Expressions? If so, what are they?

The shorter expression in your original post:

not ( "DocIss" or "Internal" or "LP" or "LPvA" or "LPvB" or "LPvC" or "NoSeeEm"
or "SAS4vB" or "SAS4vC" or "TBP" or "WriterNote" ) or ( "SAS4" and ( "LPvB" or
"LPvC" ) ) and not ("TBP" or "Internal") or ( "SAS4vA" and ( "LPvB" or "LPvC"
) ) and not ("TBP" or "Internal")

That would return everything that has none of these tags:

( "DocIss" or "Internal" or "LP" or "LPvA" or "LPvB" or "LPvC" or "NoSeeEm"
or "SAS4vB" or "SAS4vC" or "TBP" or "WriterNote" )

plus everything selected by this statement:

( "SAS4" and ( "LPvB" or
"LPvC" ) ) and not ("TBP" or "Internal") or ( "SAS4vA" and ( "LPvB" or "LPvC"
) ) and not ("TBP" or "Internal")

Which shorter expression? This one?

"LITEvA" and ( ( "LP" or "LPvA" or "LPvB" or "LPvC" or "SAS4" or "SAS4vA" or
"SAS4vB" or "SAS4vC" ) and not (  "Internal" or "TBP" ) ) and not (
"DocIss" or "NoSeeEm" or "WriterNote" )

Because it didn't work, although it's entirely probably I misunderstood
what you were trying to tell me while constructing it. The last couple of
weeks have been long and frantic, and this was a major reason why. At this
point, my brain has run out my ears, and I'm looking for instructions on

The shorter expression returns everything that is NOT tagged with
anything in the ( "DocIss" or ... "WriterNote") set, PLUS everything
that matches ("LITEvA" and (("LP" or ... or "SAS4vC") and not ("TBP"
or "Internal"))).

You might try running the first one through a utility that simplifies
logical expressions.

At least the long expression works properly. I just wish I understood why

DocBook and DITA have a much more sophisticated approach to
conditional text. There are multiple profiling attributes that can
have multiple values. Thus the parameters you use when processing
output are simple and human-readable.

In my main docs, currently I use audience (public / internal) and
condition (public / tech writer only). Both default to public, so I
don't have to do anything to hide internal and tech-writer-only
elements.

Carp. Back to not working for all the outputs I need.   It worked (I
think) for the external documents but not for the internal ones. And if the
external stuff ever becomes IP specific, it won't work for that, either.

I'm beginning to wonder if I should have just created massive conglomerate
tags, one for each book. I was trying to avoid having to create umpty
conditions, but at this point it may be my only foolproof choice.

Ugh.

Heh.

Internal / External is the audience. Internal customers get proprietary
information that the external customers don't.
DocIss is for tracking tickets entered against documentation so that I know
who asked for a change and what the change was.
LP / SAS4 / LITE are the various IPs coming out of the set, with vA / vB /
vC being the various versions of each IP.
NoSeeEm is a review condition used only on the cover page legend telling
reviewers what is visible in the document.
WriterNote is either notes to myself or questions for reviewers
TBP is information that is under review for inclusion in one of more IP /
Audience combinations.

This thing has been a nightmare, because prior to this doc I've only had to
use simple Show/Hide.

You have four sets of conditions. What's the simplest logical
statement of how you want to apply them?

It's not clear to me why the Internal and DocIss sets are separate.
You don't want this?

"LITEvA"
AND ("LP" or ... "SAS4vC")
AND NOT ("TBP" or "Internal" or "DocIss" or "NoSeeEm" or  "WriterNote")

Re: [Framers] Are there limits on Conditional Expressions? If so, what are they?

2017-04-18 Thread Lin Sims
Would you believe:

"LITEvA" and not ( "Internal" or "TBP" )

works? So far, at least. I want to test a few more combinations. SHEEESH.
Someone told me I was supposed to be telling Frame what NOT to show, ergo
the

not ( "DocIss" or "Internal" or "LP" or "LPvA" or "LPvB" or "LPvC" or "NoSeeEm"
or "SAS4" or "SAS4vA" or "SAS4vB" or "SAS4vC" or "TBP" or "WriterNote" )
lead-off and all the rest of it.

I knew I was overthinking this.

Re: [Framers] Are there limits on Conditional Expressions? If so, what are they?

OK, assuming you were telling me to create this expression:

"LITEvA" and ( ( "LP" or "LPvA" or "LPvB" or "LPvC" or "SAS4" or "SAS4vA" or
"SAS4vB" or "SAS4vC" ) and not (  "Internal" or "TBP" ) ) and not (
"DocIss" or "NoSeeEm" or "WriterNote" )

The answer is no, that doesn't work. For example, I have something that is
tagged LP + LITEvA + TBP, and it shows up, and I don't want it to.

In the second version, it's telling Frame to show everything that does
not have any of those tags. That has no effect on anything that
follows it. The logic is:

NOT ( "DocIss" or ... "WriterNote")
OR
(all the other stuff)

Re: [Framers] Are there limits on Conditional Expressions? If so, what are they?

2017-04-18 Thread Lin Sims
If there is documentation about evaluation precedence, I haven't been able
to find it.

I'm not sure about your comments on needing more parenthesis or a missing
not. I have found that you can't nest these expressions too far (I think 3
levels is the maximum) because Frame completely crashes.

This part of the expression is the same for both:

not ( "DocIss" or "Internal" or "LP" or "LPvA" or "LPvB" or "LPvC" or "NoSeeEm"
or "SAS4" or "SAS4vA" or "SAS4vB" or "SAS4vC" or "TBP" or "WriterNote" )

and it's telling Frame not to show anything that has at least one of those
tags attached.

The second part is telling Frame that if the LITEvA tag is present in any
combination, it should be shown unless it is also tagged either Internal or
TBP.

So I'm trying to figure out why Frame wants each combination defined
separately. As far as I remember (and it's been a while since I did Boolean
logic),

(A and B) or (A and C) or (A and D) should be equivalent to (A and (B or C
or D)).

and

(A and B) and not (X or Y) or (A and C) and not (X or Y) should be
equivalent to (A and (B or C)) and not (X or Y)).

Why it isn't confuses me no end.

2017-04-18 Thread Robert Lauriston
Is there any documentation of the precedence and order of evaluation
of FrameMaker's conditional tag logical operators?

I feel like the second one needs more parentheses and might be missing
a NOT. As written, it looks like it will show (1) everything with none
of the condition tags in the set that starts with DocIss as well as
(2) everything that's tagged LITEvA that also has at least one of the
tags in the set that starts with LP unless it has a TBP or Internal
tag.

not ("DocIss" or ... "WriterNote")
or
("LITEvA" and (("LP" or ... or "SAS4vC") and not ("TBP" or "Internal")))

Re: [Framers] Are there limits on Conditional Expressions? If so, what are they?

2017-04-18 Thread Lin Sims
No one wants to tackle that wall o' text, huh? :)

How's this, then. Could someone explain why these two expressions don't
have the same effect, even though (to my eyes) they are logically identical?

This one works:

not ( "DocIss" or "Internal" or "LP" or "LPvA" or "LPvB" or "LPvC" or "NoSeeEm"
or "SAS4" or "SAS4vA" or "SAS4vB" or "SAS4vC" or "TBP" or "WriterNote" ) or (
"LITEvA" and "LP" ) and not ( "Internal" or "TBP" ) or ( "LITEvA" and
"LPvA" ) and not ( "Internal" or "TBP" ) or ( "LITEvA" and "LPvB" ) and not (
"Internal" or "TBP" ) or ( "LITEvA" and "LPvC" ) and not ( "Internal" or "TBP"
) or ( "LITEvA" and "SAS4" ) and not ( "Internal" or "TBP" ) or ( "LITEvA"
and "SAS4vA" ) and not ( "Internal" or "TBP" ) or ( "LITEvA" and "SAS4vB" ) and
not ( "Internal" or "TBP" ) or ( "LITEvA" and "SAS4vC" ) and not (
"Internal" or "TBP" )

This one doesn't:

not ( "DocIss" or "Internal" or "LP" or "LPvA" or "LPvB" or "LPvC" or "NoSeeEm"
or "SAS4" or "SAS4vA" or "SAS4vB" or "SAS4vC" or "TBP" or "WriterNote" ) or (
"LITEvA" and (( "LP" or "LPvA" or "LPvB" or "LPvC" or "SAS4" or
"SAS4vA" or "SAS4vB"
or "SAS4vC" ) and not ( "TBP" or "Internal" ) ) )

Specifically, I have some text marked with LP + LITEvA + TBP, LPvA + LITEvA
+ TBP, and SAS4 + LITEvA + TBP that is hidden if I use the first expression
(which is what I want) and showing if I use the second (which is NOT what I
want).

I'll use the first one (as it works correctly), but it is hard to build,
hard to read, and I'm still not sure if I have it built to address all
possible situations (although it works for the ones I've identified). But
I'd still like to understand why the second one doesn't work. Is this a
quirk of how FrameMaker interprets conditional expressions?

And I'd also still like to know if there's a limit to how long an
expression can be. Since I have to add at least 2 new ones now, the
question is becoming important.
