[NTG-context] start-stop consistency

2005-12-28 Thread Gilles Grégoire
  Hello,
I was wondering why ConTeXt doesn't use a syntax like \startsomething 
\stopsomething for chapters, sections, etc.
So I had a look on Google and found this:

 At 03:46 PM 6/21/2002 +0200, Giuseppe Bilotta wrote:
 
 one of the main features of both ConTeXt and LaTeX over plain TeX
 is their heavily object-oriented approach to source writing,
 giving a large set of useful tools to build well-structured
 documents.
 
 There is though one aspect which has not been addressed in either:
 structuring of the sections. One still uses \chapter, \section,
 \subsection etc to denote the start of any of these, while
 structured writing would call for \startchapter ... \stopchapter,
 \startsection ... \stopsection etc.
 
 My proposal is to switch to such a method, while still retaining
 compatibility with the old-style sectioning (maybe we can use some
 flag like the one used to left left/right alignment use the
 _correct_ term --what was the switch name?).
 
 actually, this is on my to do list, for most of the project that we run 
 currently we use this approach since it gives you the options
 
 (1) to skip a chapter / section
 (2) to attach hooks to the end-of-some-section
 
 How should it work:
 
 \startchapter[optional reference name]
 
 Possible stuff before the title (e.g. an epigraph)
 
 \title{Title of the chapter}
 Optional commands to set alternative forms of the title (see
 below)
 
 no, just \startchapter[ref]{title} is ok, since i don't want to pick up the 
 title separately (imagine that you want \startchapter to trigger a complex 
 title page
 
 also, we currently test (play with) some mechanism to have section (or 
 whatever) dependent variables, thereby introducing more convenient ways to 
 tune typo behaviour.
 
 * easy way to set different titles for ToCs, running heads, (PDF)
 bookmarks etc. Consider the following hierarchy of titles:
 
 title listtitle markingtitle bmtitle
 
 that's for variables (since here we also have things like several graphics 
 to be used in typesetting the chapter page)
 
 write anything to the .tuo file; this ought to be done by the
 \stopsection-name command, which would save all of them together
 with the appropriate counter values and beginning/ending page.
 
 hm, i'm not sure if i like that
 
 * easy way to put things before the title (e.g. an epigraph) while
 still within the structure of the section.
 
 * also comes from the above: currently, when using the /XYZ method
 for PDF references, link targets end out-of-the-window because the
 TeX cohordinate used is that of the baseline. This means that the
 visible part of the page does not include the target reference
 (which is rather uncomfortable). Instead, with the new approach
 the mark could be set right before everything else, but still
 within the correct structure, with optimal PDF navigation.
 
 that is a whole different matter, (1) output format/driver dependent and 
 (2) can handled now by moving things around and (3) we don't want those 
 funny nodes to screw up the spacing [actually, since i never use that xyz 
 way of viewing docs [too inconstent auto scaling in viewers] i never felt 
 the need to look into it; maybe something for a cold winter night]
 
 Hans, do you think you can implement this easily?
 
 the \start-\stop thing will certainly be there
I see you planned to include the \start-\stop thing in ConTeXt, I even 
understand that you already implemented this method.

Did you change your mind or is it something you just don't have time to do?
Would it be possible to retrieve the macro you use?

I think this kind of feature would really be an improvement since it allows to 
learn faster.

Thanks a lot.

[NTG-context] expert font access

2005-12-28 Thread Henning Hraban Ramm

Ahoi!

One decorative font that I use contains some additional (swashed  
etc.) characters.

At the moment I access them like this:

\def\DelitschC#1{\getglyph{\defaultencoding-raw-delitschantiqua} 
{\char#1}}

\definetextmodediscretionary A {\DelitschC{197}}

So I get the alternative A as |A|, and that's enough for me.
But in this way |A| always takes this character from the same font.

How could I solve this more generally, two cases:
1. if several fonts use the same expert encoding
2. if I change the font, I'd like to get a simple A instead of |A|

At the moment I need (2.), because I'd like to use something like  
\chapter{|A|nfang};
that's ok with my definition of chapter style=\hw (Delitsch font  
being defined as handwriting), but not in the ToC (rm font).


Further (don't know how different), how could I define take this  
special character always at the end/beginning of a word or the like,  
e.g. how could I enable the different 's' of gothic fonts?


Another one: How can I define additional ligatures, e.g. if my font  
provides a Qu or some other unusual ligature?

You can add ligature specifications to an enc file, see e.g.
cork.enc. For afm2pl, you can also specify ligatures in a separate
lig file. But I don't know how to use such custom enc or lig files
in the context of the texfont utility.

[NTG-context] color in textext

2005-12-28 Thread Hans van der Meer

I'm trying to play with colors in textext inclusions:

\setupcolors[state=start]
\setupMPpage[offset=2mm]
\startuseMPgraphic{test}
label(textext(\color[green]{XYZ}), (0,0));
\stopuseMPgraphic
\starttext
\forceMPTEXgraphictrue
\startMPpage
\includeMPgraphic{test}
\stopMPpage
\stoptext

This label does not appear in green, although the intermediate files  
contain:

% figure 1 : texpictures[1] := btex \color [green]{XYZ} etex ;

Is it possible that \setupcolors[state=start] is not communicated?
If so, how and where should this be done?
\setupcolors[state=start] cannot be put inside the textext as it is a  
preamble thing (tried it)


(note: although one could do: label(textext(XYZ), (0,0) withcolor  
green; this interferes with other macro operations I want to perform)


yours sincerely,

[NTG-context] byte order marks in utf-8 (old)

Hi,

A long time ago, Hans wrote:

Patrick Gundlach wrote:


are you sure that your scite does not use utf-16 and puts the BOM (byte
order mark) there?


scite indeed does this (kind of annoying)


It is the BOM, in utf-8 file encoding. A bit pointless (utf-8 is
based on opcodes instead of byte ordering), but is allowed by the
unicode specification.


context can handle that for xml files

i can consider handling it automatically (i.e. when BOM before first start-stop,
then assume utf-8)


It is a safe bet that any document that starts with the three bytes
  0xEF 0xBB 0xBF
is encoded as UTF-8, esp. if it is supposed to be text input.

It is the difference between \hbox and \text  that does it,

[NTG-context] pushed text in description

2005-12-28 Thread Peter Münster
Hello,

Taco said on http://context.literatesolutions.com/collector/66
that the new \txt should solve my problem, but I cannot find the right way.
If nobody knows a solution, perhaps I'm going to translate the LaTeX macros
to ConTeXt (at least trying to ...).

Here is the LaTeX-code, that does the thing I'm looking for:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{mdwlist}
\begin{document}
\begin{basedescript}{\desclabelstyle{\pushlabel}\desclabelwidth{6em}}
\item[Short]  This is a shorter item label, and some text that talks about it.
  The text is wrapped into a paragraph, with successive lines indented.
\item[Normal]  This is a normal item label, and some text that talks about it.
  The text is wrapped into a paragraph in the same manner as above.
\item[Rather longer label] This is a longer item label.  It's somewhat an
  exception.  As you can see, the text is pushed to the right, to leave some
  place for the label.
\end{basedescript}
\end{document}

I would be glad about a ConTeXt-solution.

 Hans, Taco, et al,

 This is getting pretty close to the limit of my expertise. The good
 stuff of it is stolen from Metafun and mp-func.mp.

 Because of the way I handle clipping the path,

p:=p cutbefore cpath;
p:=reverse p;
p:=p cutbefore cpath;

 this will only work on functions (like lines, quadratics, and
 polynomials, maybe sinusoids) that both enter and leave the region
 inside the clipping path.

If I understand it properly (that you only want to draw the content
inside the square, while the function may be a circle or something
lying completely outside the region), you could also use something
like
clip currentpicture to cpath;
although you may have to change the code that draws double arrow then.

Re: [NTG-context] function machine

2005-12-28 Thread David Arnold

Mojca,

I've used clip currentpicture to cpath before, then saved the result,  
draw the grid, draw the axes, then draw the saved clipped picture.  
But, you're right, I can't use drawdblarrow then.


In our classes, the drawdblarrow is important, having the same  
meaning as the ellipsis in 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, ..., that is, etc. In   
the case of a parabola opening upward, the arrow on the right half  
would indicate that the graph continues opening upward and to the  
right indefinitely. This is an important distinction from say a line  
segment that stops at one end, especially when asked to determine  
the domain and range of a function from its graph.


The clipping path is a huge convenience for an instructor crafting  
plots for an exam, activity, or lesson. Otherwise, the instructor  
would have to calculate the points where the graph leaves the  
bounding box (less painful if you use Matlab, Maple, or Mathematica,  
or a graphing calculator), a time consuming task.


I am not so concerned about a plot that might lie entirely outside  
the clipping window. That just requires, as on the graphing  
calculator, that one adjust the window (different xmin, xmax, xscl,  
ymin, ymax, and yscl). I just need to be able to clip the plot and  
retain the part that lies inside the clipping window, then use  
drawdblarrow on the part that remains.


My clip routine won't (cutbefore, reverse, cutbefore) won't work on  
something like y=sqrt(3-x) for two reasons:


1. A domain problem (easily solved by adjusting the drawfcn command  
to include two more parameters: beginx, endx.


2. The clip routine is not general enough to handle this situation.

So, there's room for improvement if you want to use this routine on  
irrational, rational, and logarithmic functions.

this will only work on functions (like lines, quadratics, and
polynomials, maybe sinusoids) that both enter and leave the region
inside the clipping path.


If I understand it properly (that you only want to draw the content
inside the square, while the function may be a circle or something
lying completely outside the region), you could also use something
like
clip currentpicture to cpath;
although you may have to change the code that draws double arrow then.

i wonder what happens with the symbol when one uses it this way:

\usemodule[unit] 10 \Square \Inch


I believe the shortcut forms are only ever used for distances,
never for areas. So a rectangle with sides 2 by 4 has 8in^2
surface area.

Re: [NTG-context] color in textext

2005-12-28 Thread Hans van der Meer

I'm sorry, I ran it in a few variations, but neither does work here:

\setupcolors[state=start]
\startMPenvironment   % both with and without: [global]
\setupcolors[state=start]
\stopMPenvironment
\setupMPpage[offset=2mm]
\startuseMPgraphic{test}
	label(textext(\color[green]{XYZ}), (0,0));   % returns  
black XYZ on execute
	label(textext(\startcolor[red]{XYZ}\stopcolor), (0,20)); % returns  
unknown on execute

\stopuseMPgraphic
\starttext
\forceMPTEXgraphictrue
\startMPpage
\includeMPgraphic{test}
\stopMPpage
\stoptext

I tried to run this on context-live but there got both outputs to  
unknown.


yours sincerely,
dr. H. van der Meer

Is it possible that \setupcolors[state=start] is not communicated?


indeed,

\startMPenvironment
 \setupcolors[state=start]
\stopMPenvironment

if you want to share settings between the tex and mp runs:

\startMPenvironment[global]
 \setupcolors[state=start]
\stopMPenvironment

[NTG-context] bold sc again

2005-12-28 Thread Peter Münster
Hello,

finally I got bold small caps with the attached module.
It's certainly a bad hack, but unfortunately I don't know nothing about
typescripts, variants and other details about fonts in ConTeXt (it looks
too complicated to me...).
If somebody knows a cleaner way, feel free to update the wiki.

Cheers, Peter

I doubt there's a cleaner way (except that it's polite to start the
definitions with something like \starttypescript [..?..]
[computer-modern] [size]), but I noticed something else when I looked
into your other file with support for bold typewriter: Hans, wouldn't
it be time to do some clean-up on type-siz.tex?

Why do all these definitions still refer to cmr? (I understand that
cmr synonyms have to stay for backward compatibility, but not that
their leftovers have to be used in the distribution source.)

  \definebodyfont [12pt] [rm]
[tf=cmr12,
 bf=cmbx12,
 it=cmti12,
 sl=cmsl12,
 bi=cmbxti10 at 12pt,
 bs=cmbxsl10 at 12pt,
 sc=cmcsc10 at 12pt]

OK, I know that they map further to lmr, but not all of them do (bold
typewriter font doesn't for example). Why not using lmr names
directly?

Now I also finally understand why \bi never worked when trying to use
it with \setupbodyfont[ss] or [tt]:

  \definebodyfont [12pt] [ss]
[tf=cmss12,
 bf=cmssbx10 at 12pt,
 it=cmssi12,
 sl=cmssi12,
 bi=cmssbx10 at 12pt,
 bs=cmssbx10 at 12pt,
 sc=cmss10 at 12pt]

bi= refers to cmssbx for example, which is only bold, not bold italic
as it is supposed to be (bi=LMSans10-BoldOblique at 12pt or
something similar, I guess?), probably because there was no bold
italic sans available under cmr.

Even worse situation with typewritter, where most switches aren't
defined at all. Since there exists a bold and bold italic variant of
typewritter, why not defining it, so that there would be no need to
write additional modules for it?

Bold small caps (for which Peter's module was written) don't exist in
lmr (yet), so the module is still of interest, but I would be very
grateful if these files could be completed to reflect the current
state of lmr. I'm willing to help of nobody else is willing to fix
that (I'm slow  not that I know much about fonts, but it seems that
I'll have to learn more about typescripts anyway). I have no idea
about how to scale the fonts properly and which design sizes to use
for which font size, but if that can be copied from the current
definitions ...

PS to Peter: I would suggest you to write author=Peter M\udiaeresis
nster instead of \enableregime[utf] in the header of your modules
