[NTG-context] mswincontext problems

2006-04-27 Thread Taco Hoekwater
Hi all (esp. windows users),

Last night I tried setting up a Win98SE for use with context
using mswincontext.zip (I borrowed a laptop for bachotek, so
I could not install linux on it ... ).

It went terribly wrong. At first I thought it was just the
shoddy Win98 install on that machine, but Olivier tells me
he also had problems installing the latest mswincontext, so
I hope another someone who uses Windows98 can testrun the
installation.

I got all sort of errors from command.com (syntax error,
out of environment space, command not found, permission
denied), and the wiki page is definately incomplete so I
could not really debug. In the end, I basically gave up.

Cheers, taco

 I'm really sorry I have to resurrect this old thread, but there is  
 something terribly, fundamentally wrong with format generation in  
 newtexexec. I just dlded the latest version and ran
 texmfstart newtexexec --make --all

That is absolutely bizarre! :(

So I also just downloaded the latest, just now, but I have no such

After update with 2006-04-24 mswincontext  cont-tmf versions, i was
unable to compile anything.

Everything went fine with previous updates, so I decided to follow exactly
wiki method for a  Stand-alone ConTeXt distribution : same end.

From what i see in scite compilation panel : (new)texexec is unable to
find cont-en.fmt 

As a good end user, I'm unable to investigate more, but obviously wait for
an answer/update. 

(hopefully, i can borrow another xp box for continuing job)

Thanks

Hi,

Of course I am unable to give an answer. Yet I would like to mention, 
that also in the windows environment it does not work as expected. I 
found the format files in a
separate directory not in the web2c path. Everything worked after moving 
the folder into the correct place.

I'm really sorry I have to resurrect this old thread, but there is  
something terribly, fundamentally wrong with format generation in  
newtexexec. I just dlded the latest version and ran
texmfstart newtexexec --make --all
from within the directory where the format files should be written.  
After completion, I double-checked, and I did not get a new version  
or format file. I then searched my disk to see where format files had  
been written. Here's the result:

% locate cont-en.fmt
/Users/tas/.:/Users/tas/texmf/web2c/:!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/share/ 
texmf-local/web2c/:!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/share/texmf/web2c/:!!/usr/ 
local/teTeX/share/share/texmf-dist/web2c/pdfetex/cont-en.fmt
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/.:/Users/tas/texmf/web2c/:!!/usr/ 
local/teTeX/share/share/texmf-local/web2c/:!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/ 
share/texmf/web2c/:!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/share/texmf-dist/web2c/

/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/web2c/pdfetex/cont-en.fmt
/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/web2c/xetex/cont-en.fmt

This looks bizarre, and it is. What happened: instead of using the  
path descriptors as handed to it by kpsewhich, newtexexec CREATES the  
paths verbatim, so I now have a directory .:/Users/tas/texmf/ 
web2c/:!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/share/texmf-local/web2c/:!!/usr/local/ 
teTeX/share/share/texmf/web2c/:!!/usr/local/teTeX/share/share/texmf- 
dist/web2c/pdfetex/ inside my Home directory and in other places of  
the disk. I hope the description is clear...

Yes, I really wish I knew what causes this error. I just checked on  
my laptop running linux (Fedora Core 5), and I get the proper output  
as well:

TeXExec | tex engine path: ./pdfetex
TeXExec | mps engine path: .
TeXExec | texformat: 27/04/06 15:14:41  /usr/share/texmf-config/ 
web2c/pdfetex/cont-nl.fmt

Which as as it should be [however, newtexexec --check does not  
perform alll tests as it should]. On Mac OS X, I get at the end:

TeXExec | tex engine path: .:/Users/tas/texmf/web2c//:!!/usr/local/ 
teTeX/share//share/texmf-local/web2c//:!!/usr/local/teTeX/share// 
share/texmf/web2c//:!!/usr/local/teTeX/share//share/texmf-dist/web2c// 
pdfetex
TeXExec | mps engine path: .:/Users/tas/texmf/web2c//:!!/usr/local/ 
teTeX/share//share/texmf-local/web2c//:!!/usr/local/teTeX/share// 
share/texmf/web2c//:!!/usr/local/teTeX/share//share/texmf-dist/web2c

I guess that means that it creates, in the working directory, a  
directory named : and then the other diretories beneath it. What can  
cause this error? I;m running the same pdfetex version on both  
(3.141592-1.40.0-beta-20060213-2.2). Could be some config file, could  
be the different TDS setup on both systems, could be that OS X is  
case insensitive? Could other people check on their computers as  
well, that would be helpful.

Re: [NTG-context] make array of tables

2006-04-27 Thread Willi Egger
Hi,

antoher approach could be to place the tables in buffers. Later on call 
the buffers with something like
\placefigure
[middle]
[]
{none}
{\startcombination[3*2]
   {\externalfigure[buffer1][type=buffer]}{caption1}
   {\externalfigure[buffer2][type=buffer]}{caption2}
   ...
  {\externalfigure[buffer6][type=buffer]}{caption6}
\stopcombination}

 Not very probable since OS X uses the same separator as linux/Unix, /

I meant the separate paths in env variables one. Unix has : and
Windows has ;.

2006-04-27 Thread Renaud AUBIN
Hi,

Yet-another-report ;) :

I've installed mswincontext for the first time following the standalone
procedure three days ago. When I have generated formats with --make
--all, the format were put into pdfetex/*. It works after moving
pdfetex into the right path manually (tex/texmf-mswin/web2c). At the
moment, I thought I have missed something, but I got it working... Now,
after reading the Willi's post, I feel that there is maybe a problem
with latest mswincontext...

Dear Dalyoung,

Try \placetable   with \startcombination as it is in 'ConTeXt an

[NTG-context] solved - making array of tables

2006-04-27 Thread Dalyoung
Sorry again.

I copied and pasted the codes in mp-cb-en.pdf and run it.
It worked fine.
Hence I modified the codes using my data and it also worked fine.
I compared the structures of the codes in the documents and mine.
The only difference is the blank lines between
   
\stoptable}{talbe 1}

\starttable[..

and it was the cause of the trouble.

The other day, I had a trouble in using \head because I didn't insert  
blank line, but today, I made another  problem because inserting a  
blank line. Anyway, it is good to know ConTeXt better.

Thanks for reading.

windows 98 has limitation on the env space; the way to get around it is to (1) 
define a larger value in the comspec (config.sys if i'm right) or to enlarge

[NTG-context] some basic TABLE questions

2006-04-27 Thread Karsten Heymann
Hello,

it would be very kind if someone could answer the following questions
about the possibilities of TABLE:

- there some semi-automatic way of splitting tables on multiple pages if
  those tables are in landscape mode (which I achieve by putting them
  into a \rotating{}-Command)?
- How do I add a caption to (portrait) multipage TABLEs? \placefigure
  obviously doesn't work.

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Yours,
Karsten

If 'out of environment space' is the root of the problem, then it
should be possible to specify a larger environment when starting up
a dos box.

In a distant past, I used to create specialized dos boxes for TeX
with a larger environment and the necessary environment variables.
This was for w95.

This comment may be way off-base since I haven't tried myself to

2006-04-27 Thread Taco Hoekwater
Hello all,

I am pleased to announce that the new ConTeXt release from Hans Hagen
can be downloaded as of now from the Pragma ADE website or one of its
mirrors.

The current release has version 2006.04.27, and it is on the wiki as

http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Context_2006.04.27

The most important news items are (I guess)

* the addition of some modules to cont-ext.zip:
   - t-construction-plan
   - t-degrade
   - t-french

* Support for leftpage and rightpage floats.

* Of course, there are also a number of bugs fixed.

Happy TeXing,

Re: [NTG-context] some basic TABLE questions

2006-04-27 Thread Willi Egger
Hi Karsten,

I hope to be able to give at least partial answers

Instead of using a \framed construct I would suggest to use a background:

\setupbackgrounds[text][state=repeat,background=screen,backgroundscreen=.8]

bTABLE breaks over pages if you use [split=repeat] together with a\ 
bTABLEhead...\eTABLEhead.
Using the \rotate command prevents breaking, Possibly you better use
\setuppapersize[a4,landscape][a4,landscape], which of course rotates 
the whole layout including headers and footers.
I am afraid, that once you include the table into a \placefigure 
environment, breaking is prevented.
I was able to break a long table with a merged cell as you have it in 
the first column. However there is possibly a bug, because this column 
has no bottomframe.
In order to place the LOW TECH text correctly you might use a \framed 
command within the table
\bTD[nr=7,align=lohi] \rotate[rotation=90]{\framed[frame=off, 
offset=.5em,align=center,width=3cm]{Low Tech}}\eTD

AFAIK \placetable or \placefigure accepts a single caption only and will 
not break over pages.

Kind regards
Willi

Karsten Heymann wrote:

- How do I add a caption to (portrait) multipage TABLEs? \placefigure

I think that, although the format files were probably remade, they are
not in the location where texexec finds them, so it is finding the
previous set.

If that's the case, a short-term hack is to figure out where texexec
put the new formats and then copy them over the old formats.  However,
that means doing so every time you upgrade, and it's better to let
computers deal with such matters automatically.

Not sure if you are using Unix or Linux, but if you are, these
directions may be useful (even if it's not Debian):

[NTG-context] Part head centering and empty header

2006-04-27 Thread Johannes Graumann
Hello

I have coded my 'Appendix' like so:

\setuphead
  [part] 
  [
header=empty,
footer=empty,
alternative=middle,
placehead=yes,
resetnumber=no,
number=no,
style={
  \ss\switchtobodyfont[60pt]\setupinterlinespace[line=2.8ex]
},
page=right
  ]

\startappendices
\setuppagenumbering[way=bytext,partnumber=no,conversion=numbers,location={header,right}]
\framed
  [%
height=\textheight,%
frame=off,%
  ]
  {
\part{Appendices}
  }
{\stopappendices}

Which gives me a nicely vertically and horizontally centered title. One
problem remains though: I can't get rid of the page number. The
framed  '\setuphead[part]' commands concerning header and footer are being
overruled and I can't figure out how to have an empty header for just the
page containing the frame.

Thanks for any hints,

 indeed, so you have a mismatch (do a recursive delete of the fmt files)
 and remake again

 cd ~/texmf  rm -r *.fmt  texexec --make  texexec --version

Since that worked, the old formats must have been in ~/texmf itself
(not in a subdirectory).  Lucky! But if they are in a subdirectory,
then rm -r *.fmt won't get rid of them.  You'd instead want:

  cd ~/texmf  rm -f `find -name '*.fmt'`  etc.

And it can be worse: my old ones were ~/.texmf-var/web2c/*.fmt

[NTG-context] Breaking large equations across pages

2006-04-27 Thread Aditya Mahajan
Pagebreak of formula across pagebreaks is broken in the new release 
(ConTeXt  ver: 2006.04.27 15:59).

Consider
\starttext
\placeformula \startformula \startalign
   \dorecurse{50}
   {\NC a \NC  = b \NR[+]}
\stopalign \stopformula
\stoptext

(This used to work earlier, I can not test this, but I have document 
where the display broke across pages. Can somewith with an old ~ Mar, 
2006 release test this?)

Also, is it possible to have more control over where the display 
breaks. With latex, I can force equation break by using
\allowdisplaybreaks[1|2|3|4]

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\allowdisplaybreaks % Try with and without this.
\begin{document}
\begin{align}
   a = b \\
% Paste the above line 50 times
   a = b
\end{align}
\end{document}

Ideally, context should also provide something configurable. Maybe, it 
should be part of 
\setupformulas[displaybreak=tolerant|verytolerant|strict|verystrict]

Also there should be something like

\NC  \NR
\allowdisplaybreak[yes|no|disable...same meaning as in \page[]
\NC . \NR

to have more control over the pagebreak.
