 May I ask a newbie question? How did you create the lemmas?

Hello,

today, lemmas can be based on description/enumeration mechanism (I believe
it's been in ConTeXt since circa January 2006).

Descriptions now accept parameter title=yes. Using that, you can provide a
title to the description. Have a look into core-des.tex.

 I found a mysterious startlemma in core-des.tex via the ConTeXt
 garden source browser but

Naturally, the example of lemma definition is commented out ;)

Copy 
\defineenumeration[lemma][title=yes, titlestyle=\bs, list=lemma]
into your document and try to use
\startlemma{title of the lemma}
blah blah
\stoplemma

Check parameters of descriptions in the manual, you can find some options
related to the title mechanism.

Yours,
D.A.

P.S.: I've achieved the same functionality by means of ugly hacks that
depend on ConTeXt version strongly.  That's why I don't send you my
configuration.

Hi,

I always start tasks like that by setting the paper size and switching

meter distance. It's good to start from at least 24 pt. You surely realise
that you have to be extremely concise in your texts, so you may end up at
something like 21 pt (which is suboptimal but acceptable).

[NTG-context] Bibliography problems

2006-01-05 Thread David Antos

Hello,

I have several problems with the bibliography module in last stable
(2005.12.19).

You can find a minimal (well, as minimal as I was able to prepare ;)
example at http://www.fi.muni.cz/~xantos/biblio-example.tgz .

First, starting with the second page of bibliography, the beginnings of
lines are not aligned to the left.

Moreover, some entries produce an empty line after them. It seems probable
that some unwanted spaces appear in the macros.

In misc entries, only authors and titles are typeset. See the very first
entry cited in the document (Ha\v{z}muk): it contains howpublished and
month and they are ignored. BTW, is the \cite inside the bibliography entry
likely to work?

Can I correct my setups somehow to override those problems?

Thanks a lot,
D.A.

 That should take care of your first points.

Hello,

yes, it works great!

 Last I checked, \cite within the biblist typesets correctly,
 but it does not actually make the record appear in the list
 unless it is also cited elsewhere.

Great, it's pretty reasonable.

Two minor issues:
I've included URL's into notes in bib file in the following format
  note = {\useURL[http://www.obfuscation.org/ipf/]
 [http://www.obfuscation.org/ipf/]
  \url[http://www.obfuscation.org/ipf/]}

It used to work well, with the latest version, the finishing ']' gets
typeset. I've tried to surround the fiinal \url macro with {} but it does
not work.

And finally, I refer to bibliography in many chapters, so I need
\setuplist[pubs][criterium=previous]
in order to make the complete list. I refer to publications in the appendix
that is placed *after* the bibliography. The entry from the appendix is
not typeset by \placepublications.

What is the correct \setuplist in this case?

Thanks a lot,
D.A.

What I need is to enrich enumerations by the possibility to write into

list should be something like
Definition 4.3 ... pagenumber

I've managed something like
\expanded{\writetolist[MyList]{\precedingsectionnumber\numberTheorem}{}}}
(hooked into inbetween of defineenumeration) work, but it works for the
first level of enumerations only (i.e., not for \subdefinition) (well, I
don't mind it so much, but there should be a better way indeed). What is
the politically-correct way of obtaining the 4.3 number?

Second: I want some of the definitions to have names (to appear in the
list, too). The idea now is to re-define \startDefinition so that it
1. globaly defines a macro for the content of the name
2. the old \startDefinition will typeset
Definition 4.3: Interval Decision Diagram Node
and puts
Definition 4.3 (Interval ...) ... pagenumber
into the list, both by means of hooking into inbetween.

Is this simple enough or is there a better way to do this? BTW, is it
reasonable to enrich enumerations with the possibility to create lists and
with names? What would be great for things like definitions and lemmas is
something that combines descriptions (that have names but no numbering) and
enumerations (that have exactly the opposite features).

:-), that's great :-).

In the meantime, I solved the second part, i.e., adding the additional
describing text. It goes somehow like this (well, it's a hack, but it
works):

% MathParagraph is the enumeration (it ensures references and numbering,
% and typesetting all the texts). In command, it calls a macro that refers
% to \MathParagraphType etc.

\def\startLemma{\dosingleempty\dostartLemma}
\def\dostartLemma[#1]#2 {%
\def\MathParagraphType{Lemma}
\def\MathParagraphName{#2}
\def\MathParagraphList{MathParagraphs}
\iffirstargument
  \startMathParagraph[#1]
\else
  \startMathParagraph
\fi
}
\let\stopLemma\stopMathParagraph

So I can use
\startLemma[reference]{Algorithm xyz terminates}
...
\stopLemma

I came to the idea to misuse command= to typeset the header and write to
the list, it is given an argument containing the number of the enumeration.
Anyway, it is not easy to feed it into \expanded{\writetolist...} as the
argument is something with \edef and a pile of pretty ugly macros :-), so I
still use \precedingsectionnumber\numberMathParagraph :-(

To sum up, a good way to obtain current enumeration number (in a form that
goes into lists, etc.)  would be completely enough, provided that one
writes hacks to solve the rest (and does end up finding the real macro
names with \tracingmacros=1 :-)). Creating something like
enumerateddescription (a description with names and possibility to write
lists) would be much nicer, of course :-))

[NTG-context] Czech sorting rules

2005-08-09 Thread David Antos

Hello,

I've tried to find something relevant about the terrible Czech sorting :-)

The first thing to note is that there is a standard (from 1970 or so) that
is not implementable in fact, it requires such stupid sorts like Karel IV 
Karel III as one should sort it as the numbers were written in words
(ctvrty, treti) :-)

So in practice, there are more-or-less accurate approximations. Quite good
intro is http://www.vitsoft.info/sortkit.htm

The sorting is considered very reasonable if it conforms with order stated
in http://www.fi.muni.cz/~adelton/l10n/cssort/cssort.table . Characters on
a single line in the table are considered equivalent. Note the `ch'
character that is sorted between h and i. This table contains accented
letters that are not used in Czech (like crossed l, z dot above). It should
IMHO be also completely OK for Slovak (as they, I hope, inherited the
standard).

I think that it would be completely OK to sort according to that table
taking chars on single lines as equivalent. The modules the table is from
implements a four-pass sorting algorithm that reflects pretty damn rules,
see http://www.fi.muni.cz/~adelton/l10n/cssort/csort.c .

An example of sorted sequences is
http://www.fi.muni.cz/~adelton/l10n/cssort/sort.tab .

The question is if it is reasonable to implement it internally in ConTeXt
or to use an external module. An external Perl module was prepared by Tom
Hudec once (he even modified the sorting table, he preferred all letters
with `hacek (\v{})' to be greater than without \v. If you consider
internal ConTeXt implementation feasible, I'd be happy if you commented the
sorting macros a bit, so that I could contact native Czech users and
fine-tune it. I'd like to consult it with our Czech TeX frieds, I don't
feel myself to be a sorting expert (it's quite tricky, isn't it).

Thanks,
D.A.

2005-07-13 Thread David Antos

Hello,

in the following example, I'm pretty sure that it should produce Lemmas and
Theorems numbered continuously (i.e., one common counter for both of them)
and moreover, the numbers should (due to bychapter) be preceded by chapter
number. In ConTeXt 2005.06.27, the enumerations are counted separately and
chapter number prefix is missing.

Interestingly, if Lemma and Theorem blocks are swapped, they become really
Theorem 1 and Lemma 2. The chapter number is still missing.

Has the mechanism been changed or am I doing anything wrong?

 I also found that there is a change with csr fonts -- it is (at least in 
 the Czech interface) substituted with cmr fonts. What's the reason? How 
 could I change it againt to csr? (cmr fonts don't have accented letters.)

Hello,

quick and dirty way may be \setupbodyfont[csr] in the document.

Systematically, my (older) cont-cz.tex contains
\setupbodyfont [csr,ams,rm,12pt]
What does your cont-cz.tex set?

[NTG-context] Czech compound word handling

2005-02-02 Thread David Antos

Hello,

would it be possible to define || for compound words to act as
\discretionary{-}{-}{-}? In Czech, the hyphen for compound words should
be repeated in the following line.

Thanks,

Hello,

this ispired an idea: would it be possible to make the characters
configurable? I.e. to have in fact || configurable for pre-break,
post-break, and no-break character? I think it might be generic enough
for most languages.

Say, we would have
\setuphyphenmark[.. = ..]
sign ... (for backwards compatibility, would set up all the following)
presign ...
postsign ...
nosign ...

Hello,

don't worry, that is not the point. What I wanted is to include all
bibliographies cited in the work, not just the current chapter (which is
empty if you have a separate bibliography chapter).

It has nothing to do with choosing the entries from .bib file. This
should include cited entries only and all entries as an option (as we're
used to).

 ah, some dutch left-overs in the interface translation:
 
 search for variant in core-lst,tex:

sorry, I don't follow you :-(. What I'm saying is that alternatives a,
b, and c produce the same result (equal to `b' setting).

I expect this to expand to the macros you've cited in the end, so I
expect that
\setupcombinedlist

  [alternative=c]
should work.

 \def\@@lialternative
   {\@@lialternativeb}
 
 \@@lialternativeb
 
 (even better: \setvalue{\??li\c!alternative a}% )

OK, how should this help? I've tried all of them in the setup (with
other alternatives like a or c, too), only the first \def goes without
error and has no effect, though.

Thanks and sorry for being a bit slow,

[NTG-context] Bib module produces no output

2005-01-02 Thread David Antos

Hello,

bib module of 30-8-2004 produces no bibliography list on
\placepublications with ConTeXt 2004.12.17 (last stable) and/or latest
beta.

The workaround is to use
\setuplist[pubs][criterium=all]
somewhere in the setup.

Can you please make including the whole bibliography make the default?
I'm pretty sure that's what everybody expects :-)

Thanks,
D.A.

Sure. Think of it as ragged-right and ragged-left. This is one of the

it constantly confuses beginners :-)

 What is the current status of context support for czech?

Hello,

Hyphenation patterns work OK for Czech. Settings for Czech seem to be
reasonable (I'd only redefine subsentence setting and mainly date),
generated words (Chapter, ...) work fine, at least it is easy to
redefine them to one's personal taste :-)

System messages and names of macros are available in Czech (although I
cannot imagine anyone who would use them; things like nastavramovani
for setupframed seem really perverted to me:-).

Index sorting is missing in the distribution; in any case, Czech sorting
rules are really ugly and need incorporation of Cz::Sort into texutil. I
don't keep an eye on ConTeXt development very carefully so I might be
out-of-sync, nevertheless it'd be nice to have a sorting module
pluggable into texutil (just a suggestion).

The Czech support is based on master thesis of Tomas Hudec. After
finishing his study, he disappeared and I have no knowledge about him.
Fortunately, I have the complete sources of his work, so the missing
parts could be filled. I've prepared a Bc. thesis assignment saying in
fact take Tomas' thesis and make it really work but I haven't manage
anybody to do that :-(

Currently, I'm pretty busy (and use ConTeXt to write in English), so if
a Czech speaking ConTeXt user wants to have a look at it, I can send
him/her the archive.

Regards,
D.A.

[NTG-context] Czech patterns in TeXlive2003

2003-09-30 Thread David Antos

Hello,

Petr Olsak has changed slightly Czech pattern file czhyph.tex for
TeXlive2003, it's a bit `Babelized' now. It produces \errmessage for
Babel's \addlanguage being \undefined. It also contains several ugly
hacks to make both plain and LaTeX read \v and \' syntax for Czech
accents, and finally it reads czhyphen.tex containing real patterns.

The result is that generating ConTeXt format ends with the \errmessage.
Simple workaround is to change alias in cont-usr.tex to pattern files
from czhyph.tex to czhyphen.tex. My discussion with Petr Olsak suggests
to make a more systematic correction: to add a test into czhyph.tex and
make it directly read czhyphen.tex if ConTeXt is detected.

This needs two things to make sure:
1. Is it OK to read patterns with \v and \' syntax into ConTeXt?
2. Is there a way to detect ConTeXt in order to put into czhyph.tex
something like:

\ifx\something-typical-to-detect-ConTeXt\undefined \else
% for ConTeXt
\input czhyphen.tex
\endinput \fi

Is there a more systematic/clean solution? Or shall I ask Petr Olsak to
change this in the czhyph.tex file?

Thanks,
D.A.
