Re: [NTG-context] One interline space setup trouble

Hi, Wolfgang,

Thank you for the visual hint. The space around 2th paragraph is 
equal, I agree with you. However, why there is only a half of 
interline space BELOW 1st paragraph, while 3st paragraph has full 
space ABOVE it? That is the root cause of my problem.

Change the height/depth ratio of the interlinespace.

I recently bought a used paper cutter and duplex unit for my printer.
Now I'm in need of some nice marks to feed them. 8-)

No.

criterium=section produces a partial list
pertinent to that level. For example,
\placecontent [criterium=chapter] prints the per-chapter TOC.

level=section truncates the list at a certain level.
For example, \placecontent [level=section]
should list [part,chapter,section] but not subsection and below.

Another funny thing is taking place in the TOC under MkIV:
\placecontent (alone) within a \chapter indeed places a partial TOC.
However, within a big project (book) with frontmatter, bodymatter,
 \part, \chapter., appendices, and backmatter, the first chapter
of the bodymatter (Chapter 1) also lists sections A.1 and A.2
(coming from Appendix A).

A minimal example is too complicated to present here.

[NTG-context] gnuplot in mkiv

2010-02-17 Thread Martin 'golodhrim' Scholz
Hi List,

is a direct usage of gnuplot in ConTeXt MKIV possible or does one need to 
invoke ConTeXt with a special parameter to create a dvi/ps file and 
convert it to pdf? if so an option of generating the graph and converting 
it to be included would be nice in that function, so that a direct usage 
in ConTeXt MKIV would be possible...

I need to convert an exam written in ConTeXt to an ascii text file like

Before I go to the trouble of creating a parser to read the ConTeXt

Can you show a small example of the corresponding tex source?


\def\mcquestionnumber{14}


\mcquestionheader A ruby is a gem of corundum coloured by\crlf

\mcquestionfooter


If you are willing to add more markup, then TeX can do the parsing for 
you.


\startquestion[title={Ruby coloured by}, points=1, difficulty=1]
  A ruby is a gem of corundum colored
  \startoptions
\option Rutile
\option Calcium
\correctoption Chrumium
\option Iron and Titanium
  \stopoptions
  \starthint

  \stophint
  \startfeedback
   ...
  \stopfeedback
\stopquestion

You can create a mode for ascii output that redefines all the environments 
to *typeset* the correct output, which you can then convert to text using 
pdftotext.


Another option is to write everything in XML (it is almost the same ...)
question title=..., points=, difficulty=...
  text A ruby .. /text
  options
option ... /option
option ... /option
option correct=yes ... /option
option ... /option
  /option
  hint
   
  /hint
  feedback
   ...
  /feedback
/question

With a few setup commands, ConTeXt can directly typeset an xml file. 
Parsing the xml file to generate ascii text can be done using your 
favourite programming language (or using ConTeXt by typesetting the 
desired output and using pdftotext).



And the desired output is...

NewQuestion,MC,
Title,Ruby coloured by,
QuestionText,A ruby is a gem of corundum coloured by
Points,1,
Difficulty,1,
Image,,
Option,0,Rutile,,
Option,0,Calcium (Ca),,
Option,100,Chromium (Cr),,
Option,0,Iron (Fe) and Titanium (Ti),,
Hint
Feedback

Maybe a regexp would do, followed by a bit of hand editing, but if there
is a way of doing this in ConTeXt that would be very convenient.


If this is something that you need to do only a few types, anything quick 
and dirty will suffice. But for the long run it makes sense to have a more 
detailed markup and then you do not need to worry about the correctness of 
the conversion.

 upgrade with mtx-update.lua without firstsetup.sh.

 About the fourier fonts. Is there a lot of work to do in math-vfu.lua
 to get it to work? I looked into that file, but it was a bit hard to
 understand what is needed...

 Maybe it is hard work to get the fonts working, but I really think
 that if we have several text+math fonts easily available in the
 minimals that will make (new) users very happy.

 it depends ... if the font is in tex default encoding then it's only a
 matter of adding a small table

 I'm not 100% sure how it works wth font encodings, but the fourier doc
 (http://mirror.ctan.org/fonts/fourier-GUT/doc/latex/fourier/fourier-doc-en.pdf)
 says that the fonts are _fully_ T1 encoded.

 Mikael

 PS: Hans, do you have any comments about the mathdesign patch
 suggested by Mojca above?

I have now manually downloaded the mathdesign fonts (and the charter
fonts, not available on the server it seems)

The fonts gets used, but I get upright math letters instead of italic
ones. My test file is given by

\definetypeface[charter][rm][serif][charter] [default]
\definetypeface[charter][mm][math] [charter] [default]

\setupbodyfont[charter,10pt]

\starttext
We define, for real $x$, the absolute value of $x$ as
\startformula
|x|=
\startcases
\NC \hphantom{-}x \MC x\geq 0,\NR
\NC -x \MC x0.\NR
\stopcases
\stopformula
Also let $\alpha$, $\beta$ and $\Gamma$ be\dots
\stoptext

The output can be found at

http://home.imf.au.dk/mickep/mdesign.pdf

Typesetting a similar document with LaTeX I get italic math (note also
that the \Gamma is upright, I guess that this is an option that is
turned on by default by LaTeX)

http://home.imf.au.dk/mickep/lmdesign.pdf

I guess this has something to do with the following lines in math-vfu.lua

mathematics.make_font ( charter-math, {
{ name = file:bchr8a, features = virtualmath, main = true },
 -- { name = md-chr7m.tfm, vector = tex-mr },
{ name = md-chri7m.tfm, vector = tex-mi, skewchar=0x7F },

{ name = md-chr7y.tfm, vector = tex-sy, skewchar=0x30,

{ name = md-chr7v.tfm, vector = tex-ex, extension = true },
{ name = msam10.tfm, vector = tex-ma },

 Why \definehead[appendix][chapter]?
 Why not use \chapter{} and \section{}
 within \startappendices\stopappendices?

I don't remember exactly (and it was bug anyway even if my code could
have been optimized), but I wanted to have different font size,
different position, different placement in TOC (Appendix A - Title
instea of just A Title), different page breaking, ... Though I still
didn't figure out how to have Appendix A - also printed out in TOC
(instead of plain A).

So I simply defined another type of section (faster solution than
figuring out how to change appearance of chapter in appendices only).

 \chapter{} and \section{} get put into the TOC.
  (However, there is a bug and they do not get the proper label:
  \setlabeltext [appendix=Appendix ] in the head;
  \setlabeltext [chapter=Chapter ] in the list.)

 \appendix{} does not get put into the TOC
 so it works like \title{} rather than \chapter{}

I defined the second list for that purpose (really ugly, but the
fastest way to get it done). But there was a tiny problem with that as
well (mkii more problematic) - I didn't manage to get the spacing
between two consecutive lists right. For example (compare mkii and
mkiv):

\definecombinedlist
[contenta]
[chapter,section]
[level=section,
 criterium=all,alternative=c,aligntitle=yes,width=2.5em]

\setuplist
[chapter]
[style=bold]

\setupwhitespace[big]

\starttext

\placecontenta [alternative=c,aligntitle=yes,width=2.5em]
\placecontenta [alternative=c,aligntitle=yes,width=2.5em]

\blank % no effect in mkii at all - remains too narrow

\placecontenta [alternative=c,aligntitle=yes,width=2.5em]

\blank\blank[big]

\placecontenta [alternative=c,aligntitle=yes,width=2.5em]

\crlf % too big

\placecontenta [alternative=c,aligntitle=yes,width=2.5em]

\chapter{a}
\section{a.1}
\section{a.2}
\chapter{b}
\section{b.1}
\section{b.2}

\stoptext

Hi list,
does anybody know how I could start metapost itself standalone from the

i nowadays never call mpost, i just do

\startMPpage

\stopMPpage

and process that with context

 You can try
   texexec --make mpost

There's also a switch --formats=... in mtx-update.lua (that is, one
can call first-setup.sh with --formats=... switch), but I have
probably not tested that yet.

Re: [NTG-context] gnuplot in mkiv

 On Wed, Feb 17 2010, Martin 'golodhrim' Scholz wrote:

 is a direct usage of gnuplot in ConTeXt MKIV possible

 Yes.

 Example:

 \usemodule[gnuplot]
 \setupGNUPLOT[terminal=png]
 \startGNUPLOTscript[sin]
    plot sin(x)
 \stopGNUPLOTscript
 \starttext
 \useGNUPLOTgraphic[sin]
 \stoptext

The context terminal should also work (that is: you may leave out the
\setupGNUPLOT[terminal=png] or replace png with context that's
default anyway), but you need some special effort to compile the
terminal:

git clone git://github.com/mojca/gnuplot.git
./prepare
./configure
make

If you would like to keep using that, you can do yourself and others
the favor and write a request to gnuplot-b...@lists.sourceforge.net to
include the terminal in gnuplot's CVS (they say that not enough people
have tested and/or requested its inclusion).

An alternative is to use the lua-tikz terminal. Peter has an
almost-working version that should produce almost-valid (not yet
optimized and maybe not completely future-proof yet) ConTeXt output,
but is not included in official gnuplot version yet (and also the
gnuplot module in ConTeXt needs to be polished a bit in that respect).
Using tikz is not ready yet, but is doable if you have some patience.

You may use [just-in-time or precompiled] PDF/PS/PNG terminals of
course, but you won't be able to add TeX labels and use native
document fonts.

Hi Wolfgang,

sorry for bothering you again.
I am using your letter module, but it seems that I am not able to use a 2

No idea what’s the problem but as a workaround you can use this:

\startsimplecolumns[n=2]
\startitemize
\item ...
\stopitemize
\stopsimplecolumns

\startletter
   [subject=Verteiben der Position \quotation{nicht hier {\bf B11r} },

[NTG-context] Magazine imposition.

2010-02-17 Thread John Culleton
A person has asked for a solution to this problem: print a dual magazine where 
the first half is a regular magazine, but the second half is a magazine with 
the pages upside down with respect to the  first half. In other words the back 
cover is really the front cover of the second magazine.  I assume that the 
page counts of each magazine are equal. 

I know that Context has an extensive imposition capability but I don't think 
this particular problem has been addressed.

Hi people,

I've tried to get into contact with Idris Hamid but got no reply so far.

Can anybody tell what's the status of the CritTeXt packet? Is there already 
anything to play around
with?

Are there any alternatives for critical editing, would it be possible to get 
old Edmac running wit
ConTeXt for example?

Greetings,
