After upgrading recently, I found that texexec no longer preserves the 
order of files passed to it. When I concatenate files with texexec, I 
often have more than 10 files I want to pass to texexec names 
filename1.pdf, filename2.pdf, ... filename12.pdf, etc. In the past, 
the following has worked to concatenate these in the correct order:


texexec --pdfarrange --result=filename.pdf `ls -a -v filename*.pdf`

Now, even if I pass filename10.pdf after filename2.pdf on the command 
line, texexec ingores this and puts filename10.pdf before 
filename2.pdf in the resulting concatenated file.


Is there a fix for this, or is there a better way to concatenate pdf 
files?


the latest version should preserve unless --sort if given

be prepared for some potential problems with opentype fonts in

While that will not take long, it will still mean the beginning

You should get Gentium installed independent on what version of ConTeXt you use.

Should work fine. Well, I just figured out that there's a typo in type

also forgot to include the agr encoding, but it's there now.

I have no idea how Greek-specific stuff like \usemodule[greek] was

know). But you should be able to use Old Greek encoding.

[NTG-context] Building tables at runtime via --mode= option

2008-12-09 Thread Bart C. Wise
I'm trying to build a table in a project that will be built based on a 
commandline parameter.  Currently, I'd like to use the --mode= command.  
However, I've run into a number of snags that I have attempted to solve 
without any luck.  I've included some sample code of what I would like to do.

I can do all of what I need using \doifmodeelse, etc.  However, I'm looking 
for a more elegeant solution.  Any hints/solutions are welcomed!

Problems:
1) \currentmode: I cannot use this variable in my file, but it works in the 
source code.  Question: Is the mode option okay, or is there a better way?

2) CellWidth (below) needs to be a floating point dimension, based the size of 
the paper.  So I need to divide the size of the paper (\textwidth) by a number 
and make sure it stays as a dimension.

3) I tried to use \getnumber[Rounds] to span a number of columns ( 
\bTD[nc=\getnumber[Rounds]]) but this would not compile.   Here's the error:
Runaway argument?
Rounds=\plusone \ifnum \tblny =\plusone \ifnum \currentcol \maximumcol \ETC.
! Paragraph ended before \getnumber was complete.


Sample:
\definenumber[Rounds]
\setnumber[Rounds]{6}
% desire: \setupnumber[Rounds]{\currentmode}
% and verify that it's a number between a given range.
% \currentmode comes back as undefined

\definenumber[TotalCol]

AFAIK, ConTeXt cannot do this out of the box right now. It would be nice 
feature to have.



Is there any introduction to using fonts(typefaces) in ConTeXt?


Have a look at the new manual, which explains how to use fonts in detail.

[NTG-context] how to get thick and thin borders working in tables (ConTeXt)

2008-12-09 Thread Lars Huttar
Hello,

We are using ConTeXt (with XeTeX engine) to typeset some tables that
have borders (rules) between cells.

In the previous edition of the book (which was not done in TeX), some of
the lines between table cells were double, others single. This was done
to show grouping of columns and rows. We have been told that in TeX, or
at least in ConTeXt, you can't do double rules (we'd be happy to be
corrected on that point), so we have been trying to use thick and thin
lines to show grouping.

Thick or thin lines work fine if applied to whole tables or whole cells,
but when there are cells with thick rules on some sides and thin rules
on other sides, it gets confused.

For example, we tried
(a) \setupTABLE[c][4][leftframe=on,rulethickness=0.5mm]
to set the left border of the fourth column to be thick. This worked.
But then if we use
(b) \setupTABLE[c][4][rightframe=on,rulethickness=0.25mm]
to set the right border of the same column to be thin, it overrides the
thickness of both left and right borders, so setting (a) is lost.

In other words, we can't seem to get a given cell to have a thick border
on one side and a thin border on the other side. (Well, we could fake it
in some cases by setting rulethickness for an adjacent cell, but that
adjacent cell would then have to have thick borders on all sides.)

Does anybody know if it's possible to do this in ConTeXt? or in TeX?

Thanks for any ideas,
Lars

P.S.
Incidentally, if you set the bottom border of row 1 and the top border
of row 2 each to be thick, the result is additive: you get a
doubly-thick border.

Re: [NTG-context] how to get thick and thin borders working in tables (ConTeXt)

2008-12-09 Thread Aditya Mahajan

On Tue, 9 Dec 2008, Lars Huttar wrote:


Hello,

We are using ConTeXt (with XeTeX engine) to typeset some tables that
have borders (rules) between cells.

In the previous edition of the book (which was not done in TeX), some of
the lines between table cells were double, others single. This was done
to show grouping of columns and rows. We have been told that in TeX, or
at least in ConTeXt, you can't do double rules (we'd be happy to be
corrected on that point),


Have you tried using metapost backgrounds? See

Ah, that sounds like the cause.  In the old file, I used 50.7pt with
\ss\bfd to almost exactly span the line.  In the new file, to exactly
span the line required 46.902pt with \ss\bfd.  The ratio of the two
point sizes is 1.081.

No. We have discussed this extensively in the past. There is also a

if the pdf output changed with different version. However, it has been 
dormat for about a year now. For more info see

Adiyta, you shouldn't have hard-coded:

./frontmatter.tex:\startcolor[darkred]\titlefont \hskip 1.5em Chapters 
\stopcolor}


Yeah, I know. This was just a quick change, so I did not bother with 
elegance. The proper way of doing it would be to define a titlecolor 
and use that.



Changing L191 env-thesis.tex, has no effect, such as:

\setuplist [chapter][color=darkblue]
\setuplist [Title]  [color=darkblue]

Chapters still comes out as darkred.

[NTG-context] texexec (and context) stops when using \externalocp

2008-12-09 Thread Khaled Hosny
Trying to get some sort of 'implicit' bidi with luatex, I though
of using an (extenal) OCP filter as it is much easier than messing with
luatex nodes, and it respects TeX grouping.

The attached example loads the do_bidi.py script as an \externalocp, it
works fine with plain luatex, but not with 'texexec', using 'context' I get:

MtxRun | fatal error, message: luatex: execution interrupted

Any ideas? Is there a lua equivalent to \externalocp ?

 Khaled

This class defines the function tag_text, which tags a text for
directionality, by using the relevant part of the Unicode BIDI algorithm
(see http://unicode.org/reports/tr9/).

It defines the function tag_text, which gets an iterator over characters, and
return an iterator over characters and the constants OPEN_L, CLOSE_L, OPEN_R
and CLOSE_R. These constants are inserted between the given characters, to
give the directionality structure of the text.

This module currently doesn't implement the algorithm for arabic characters,
since those require some special treatment.

How are you compiling your files? Use context thesis and not texexec 
--lua thesis (texexec will run bibtex which will overwrite the existing 
bbl file, since you do not have any bib file, the bbl file will be empty).


Please note that my latest upload to modules.contextgarden runs
bibtex itself, in mkiv mode.

Ah, so that explains why Mohamed is not getting any citations. I was using 
latest minimals from yesterday which still have t-bib from 2008.10.27.


Taco, I also have a feature request for the bib module. Currently, 
\setupcite is defined as


\def\dosetupcite[#1][#2]%
  {\ifsecondargument
 \def\dodosetupcite##1{\getparameters[\??pv##1][#2]}%
 \processcommalist[#1]\dodosetupcite
   \else % default case
 \getparameters[\??pv\@@citedefault][#1]%
   \fi }

This means that if I say

\setupcite[compress=no], this option is only passed to the default cite 
command. This means that when interaction is enabled, (and the bibl-* file 
says compress=yes), we get no styles for other cite styles. Does it 
make sense to add a keyword all so that


\setupcite[all][...] is equal to
\setupcite
  [author,authoryear,authoryears,
   year,serial,authornum,page,short,type,doi,url,num]
  [...]


Also, can we add style and color options to \cite. These can be either 
passed to \setupinteraction in \docite or simply added using attributes in 
the output of \cite.


Mohamed, to get the references to work comment

\setupbibtex  [database={IEEEfull,../collection}, sort=author]

in macros.tex and add

\dousepublications[thesis]

You can also use the official way: \usepublications[thesis], but I think 
that this will cause warnings about redefined labels. Perhaps a better way 
would be to change thesis.bbl to say thesis-ref.bbl and then use 
\usepublications[thesis-ref].

Re: [NTG-context] how to get thick and thin borders working in tables (ConTeXt)

 On 12/9/2008 12:04 PM, Wolfgang Schuster wrote:

We applied your example to our document, and were able to get it working
with thick and thin lines. Thanks very much!

Now since you included double lines in your example, I've been aspiring
to use that instead of just thick lines...


 \startuseMPgraphic{table:frame:double}
 draw OverlayBox enlarged -\the\dimexpr\linewidth/2\relax ; % outer frame
 draw OverlayBox enlarged -2pt ;% inner frame
 setbounds currentpicture to OverlayBox ;
 \stopuseMPgraphic

OK... the above results in triple lines between cells, so I modified the
draw OverlayBox lines as follows:

draw OverlayBox enlarged \the\dimexpr\linewidth*1\relax ; % outer frame
draw OverlayBox enlarged -\the\dimexpr\linewidth*2\relax ; % inner frame

This was mainly experimental, as I don't fully understand the model.
(I looked up some Metapost references but couldn't find a definition of
enlarged.) But it seems to work: the double lines between two cells
overlap exactly, so you get a consistent look.

However, when I try to mix double frames with single frames, I'm having
trouble. Here is what I tried, in order to get a cell with double frame
on the left, and single frame everywhere else:

\startuseMPgraphic{table:frame:Lrtb} % left border is double
draw leftboundary OverlayBox enlarged \the\dimexpr\linewidth*1\relax ; %
outer frame
draw leftboundary OverlayBox enlarged -\the\dimexpr\linewidth*2\relax ;
% inner frame
draw rightboundary OverlayBox enlarged -\the\dimexpr\linewidth/2\relax ;
draw topboundary OverlayBox enlarged -\the\dimexpr\linewidth/2\relax ;
draw bottomboundary OverlayBox enlarged -\the\dimexpr\linewidth/2\relax ;
setbounds currentpicture to OverlayBox ;
\stopuseMPgraphic

Now the graphic has double line on the left and a single line elsewhere.
However, the lines are thicker than in the previous one... about twice
as thick, too heavy for our requirements. And I can't tell why. This is
true on all four sides.
See http://www.huttar.net/lars-kathy/tmp/test-mp-tableframe.pdf, second
table.

Also, on the side that has double lines, the double lines don't go all
the way to the top and bottom (see same pdf, second table), so that the
double line is not continuous across multiple rows.

Any suggestions?

The above graphic is used as follows...
\start
\setupTABLE[c][first][background={table:frame:Lrtb}]
\getbuffer
\stop


Thanks,
Lars
