Here are slightly different syntax that could be useful perhaps ? In the second 
one, the scaled parameter can be replaced easily with a variable, so you can 
decide and change the size of the label during the course of a picture.

\starttext

\startMPpage
defaultfont := "\truefontname{Sans}";
defaultfontsize := \the\bodyfontsize;

defaultscale := 0.5;
label.top("small label", (-10,0));

defaultscale := 1.0;
label.top("normal label", (50,5));
label.top("another normal label", (50,-5));

defaultscale := 2.0;
label.top("Huge label", (10,-25));

\stopMPpage

\startMPpage

 draw textext.top("small label") scaled 0.5 
shifted (-10,0) ;
 draw textext.top("normal label") scaled 1 
shifted (50,5) ;
 draw textext.top("second normal label") scaled 1 
shifted (50,-5) ;
 draw textext.top("Huge label") scaled 2 
shifted (10,-25) ;

\stopMPpage

\stoptext

Sorry, I misunderstood the question. Here is a solution (perhaps there is a 
simpler solution !):

\startMPpage
picture TheImage ; 
TheImage := image(
draw externalfigure "cow.pdf";
);
TheImage := TheImage shifted -center(TheImage);
draw TheImage ;
draw (0,0) withpen pencircle scaled .2in withcolor magenta ;

I have similar problem for my courses. The solution I use, different than the 
one offered, is to write in a « special » color the text I want to hide from 
the students. This permits me to have hidden texts in figures for exemple. 
Also, I do not calculate space required, this is automated !  Here is MWE :

\enablemode[solution]

\doifmode{solution}{
 \definecolor[solcolor][magenta]
} 
\doifnotmode{solution}{
 \definecolor[solcolor][white]
} 
\definedescription[solution]
[color=solcolor]

\starttext

How many roads? \startcolor[solcolor] Professor note.\stopcolor
 \startsolution
   42 roads.
 \stopsolution

How much wood?
 \startsolution
   Alotta wood!
 \stopsolution

No more questions.

\stoptext

So the color used when solutions are hidden are white on white, we can not see 
the text;  but of course, if you change the background, you see the hidden 
text. So there is another step to the process (I usually do this only once a 
term); open the file in Acrobat, and find the option to delete hidden text. The 
text for which the color is the same as the background is really deleted. You 
can try to select the text in any pdf view/editor, the text is gone !

On MacOS, I usually follow with success this page of the wiki :
https://wiki.contextgarden.net/Installing_ConTeXt_LMTX_on_MacOS

Regarding modules, on MacOS, the script described here (again on the wiki) 
works well for me:
https://wiki.contextgarden.net/Modules#ConTeXt_LMTX

Finally, I use TexPad as my context/metafun editor, and if you need some help 
to set it up, I can describe my setup in details.

Dear list,

I have a problem connecting path with the operator « & » (page 16 Metafun 
manual). The problem is illustrated by the code (and the joined PDF) which 
follows. 

I draw random cycled  forms (left part of the figure) and when they interact, 
they are modified to « fit together » (right part of the figure) . When 
building these new forms, I connect paths (usually two or three depending on 
position 0 of the path); the last point a path is the same as the first point 
of the next path ; for exemple, to modify the blue circle, named « circleA », I 
take the circle A from P1 to P2, then a segment from P2 to P1 and cycle to have 
a closed path. So I should be able to do :

newcircleA := circleA cutbefore P1 cutafter P2 & (P2 -- P1) & cycle  ;

The « & » operator is supposed to work (if I understand correctly) in this 
case, but I have this error message :

"! Paths don't touch; `&' will be changed to `..’."

Which I do not understand since the paths « touch ». There was a similar 
question last year, without a clear answer (« 
METAPOST subpath rounding issue 
»https://www.mail-archive.com/ntg-context@ntg.nl/msg94294.html). 

A solution is to ignore the repeating points :
newcircleA := circleA cutbefore P1 cutafter P2 -- (P2 -- P1) -- cycle  ;
but this new shape has 9 points instead of 7. The problem is that I do these 
operations a number of times, and the length of a path (in the number of 
points) is increasing and cause trouble when I look for intersections with 
others shapes.

Here is the MWE:

\startMPpage
path circleA , circleB ;

circleA := fullcircle scaled 1in randomized 3 ;
circleB := fullcircle scaled 1in randomized 3 shifted(0.3in,0.3in) ;

Thanks (again). ConTeXt is always full of ressource ! I did not know we could 
do this, even if I realized now that there is a similar example in the wiki. 

For the list, in case in the future this would be useful for another user, 
below is the complete minimal example using this approach.

According to the wiki, we cannot nest several \startmode …\stopmode, but there

Following your advice, I tried with several {}, but no luck.

I already use blocks, but following your message, I tried to think differently. 
One solution would be to define a block for each course. Something like this (a 
working minimal example, redone in order this would be more easier to 
understand (I hope!) what I’m trying to do):

% —
\setuppapersize[S5][S5]
\enablemode[Professor]

\defineblock[ComplementTwo]
\defineblock[ComplementThree]

\setupblock[ComplementTwo,ComplementThree][

before={\page[yes]\setuppagenumber[state=stop]\setupheadertexts[]\setupbackgrounds[page][background=color,backgroundcolor=red]},
after={\page[yes]\setuppagenumber[state=start]}]
\starttext

% Let's process the summaries  ;
\beginComplementTwo
Last course, we have seen A.
\endComplementTwo

\beginComplementThree
Last course, we have seen B….
\endComplementThree

\beginComplementThree
Last course, we have seen C….
\endComplementThree
%  

Let's begin course 1. 
This is course 1 : a lot of pages here about A! 
\page[yes]

Let's begin course 2. 
\doifmode{Professor} {
\useblocks[ComplementTwo]
}

This is course 2 : a lot of pages here about B and C! 

\page[yes]
Let's begin course 3. 
\doifmode{Professor} {
\useblocks[ComplementThree]
}   

This is course 3 : a lot of pages here about D... ! 

\stoptext

%— 

The only inconvenient of this solution if that I have to define 15 blocks (one 
for each week of the term): ComplementOne, ComplementTwo, .., 
ComplementFithteen… Another drawback of this is difficult to move one block 
form one week to another if I change something. Each block here correspond in 
fact to a summary of the previous course. So I have typically around 10 pages 
of summary for each course. The challenge is that the content of each course is 
not exactly the same form one term to another, so I have to move a page to the 
summary from one course to the other one, like in a given term, if teach about 
subject C in course 3 :

\beginComplementThree
Last course, we have seen C….
\endComplementThree

, but next term in course 4:

\beginComplementFour
Last course, we have seen C….
\\beginComplementFour

I have to manually change \beginComplementThree … \endComplementThree to 
\beginComplementFour … \beginComplementFour.

But I will do this if I do not find another solution. 
Thanks again Hraban.

[NTG-context] Blocks inside a conditional mode.

2021-11-28 Thread Fabrice L via ntg-context
Dear list,

I have an error when I try to insert a block inside a conditional mode (but 
there is two nested conditional mode.. is this the problem ?).  

In my courses notes, I insert some blocks (named «  Complement » in the minimal 
exemple below) when in « Professor » mode. This works fine, as shown in the 
first «  \beginComplement … \endComplement  » of my example below. 

But now I have to use another condition for some blocks, depending of the 
number of the current course. So I insert my block with a condition, here « 
CourseOne » :

\enablemode[CourseOne]
\doifmode{CourseOne}{
\beginComplement
Another complementary slide. 
\endComplement
}

But this does not work :

% 
tex error   > tex error on line 1 in file 
/Users/fabricel/context/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/mkiv/cont-yes.mkiv: 
! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [input stack size=5]
% 

The problem can be summarized in this minimal non working example : 

% — MWE —
\setuppapersize[S5][S5]
\enablemode[Professor]

\defineblock[Complement]
\setupblock[Complement][

before={\page[yes]\setuppagenumber[state=stop]\setupheadertexts[]\setupbackgrounds[page][background=color,backgroundcolor=red]},
after={\page[yes]\setuppagenumber[state=start]}]
\doifallmodes{Professor} {
\keepblocks[Complement]
}

\beginComplement
A complementary slide. 
\endComplement

page 2

\enablemode[CourseOne]
\doifmode{CourseOne}{
\beginComplement
Another complementary slide but only for course number 1. 
\endComplement
}
\disablemode[CourseOne]

page 3

\enablemode[CourseTwo]
\doifmode{CourseTwo}{
\beginComplement
Another complementary slide but only for course number 2. 
\endComplement
}
\disablemode[CourseTwo]

\stoptext
\stoptext

% — MWE —

Blocks and modes usually works fine for me, but here, I do not understand my 
error.
Thanks for any help ! 

Fabrice. 


Note : in case this way of doing things seems a bit silly, here are more 
explanations. I do use mode « CourseOne »  here because in the real life, the 
content in the condition «  \doifmode{CourseOne}{ …} » is read in an external 
file, containing material for « CourseOne », « CourseTwo », etc. The setup is 
then, in the main file :

% Main file : begin 

Bla bla bla ...

\enablemode[CourseOne]
\input ComplementMaterial.tex
\disablemode[CourseOne]

Bla bla bla ...

\enablemode[CourseOne]
\input ComplementMaterial.tex
\disablemode[CourseOne]

% Main file : end 

And in the « ComplementMaterial.tex » there is :

% ComplementMaterial.tex —

\doifmode{CourseOne}{
\beginComplement
A complementary slide but only for course number 1. 
\endComplement

\beginComplement
Another complementary slide but only for course number 1. 
\endComplement
}

\doifmode{CourseTwo}{
\beginComplement
A complementary slide but only for course number 2.

Here is another way to do your animation. This is doing something, but I guess 
not what you want. Could you describe what do you have in mind ?

\starttext
\dorecurse{7}{ % 3180
\startMPpage
myvariable := #1 ;

u := 1cm;

(i/360*1.5cm,0.9cm*(sind(i))) endfor shifted (n,0);

[NTG-context] LuaMetaFun MPinclusions doublefun

2021-05-02 Thread Fabrice L
Dear list,

I’m experimenting LuaMetaFun. The following MWE example works as expected, but 
stop to work as soon as I uncomment the « doublefun » commands, like :

\startMPinclusions{doublefun} (… )
\startMPpage[instance=doublefun]


% MWE ——

\startMPinclusions%{doublefun}
vardef Macrotest(expr ANumber) =
draw textext(decimal(ANumber)) scaled 10;
enddef ;
\stopMPinclusions

\startMPpage%[instance=doublefun]

Macrotest(22)  ;

  path p; p := (0,0)..(3,3.5)..(9,-3.5).. (12,0)..(9,3.5)..(3,-3.5)..cycle;
  draw lmt_followtext [
 text = "\dorecurse{9}{· Just random text }",
 path = p xsized TextWidth,
 autoscaleup = "max",
 reverse=true,
  ] xsized 5in;
 \stopMPpage

% ———

Log says:

metafun > log > error: Isolated expression
metafun > log >

I have search the making list for examples, but did not not found anything.

Thanks a lot for your nice words ! Hans, all your covers have been very 
inspirational to me.. ! I use ConTeXt in my work day, and ConTeXt/Metafun to do 
generative work in the night ! ;-) 

I usually do images ; if you or the list ever want to see more, the site 
https://art-aleatoire.com  is to show my work, and 
all you can see there is made by me using 100% MetaFun, with sometimes the help 
of you and the list, and all the time the help of your wonderful MetaFun 
manual. I’m often so much impressed by what could be done with a couples of 
lines of MetaFun code; life is made from DNA, art (perhaps illustrations would 
be a better world) could be made by the MetaFun « randomized » function.

« art-aleatoire »  is french, and can be translated to «  random art ». So the 
function I use the most in MetaFun is « randomized » !

Thanks ! Yes, I can do and article with pleasure. Just give me more indications 
about the level (perhaps some examples) and length of the paper. I would be 
delighted and honoured to present at a ConTeXt meeting, but they are usually in

Hi,

Off topic (I hope this is ok), an animation made 100% with ConTeXt / MetaFun. 
Several elements in the 6 840 images are sync to the music (i.e images « react 
» to music - although imperfectly). Theses thousand of pages are used to make a 
3m49s animation. If somebody if ever interested I can give more details of the

I’m sure somebody could find a more elegant solution, but here is a simple one:

 \setupbodyfont[pagella]
 \starttext
 \startMPcode
 pair a ; a := (1, 1) ;
 pair b ; b := (1, 10) ;
 pair c ; c := (10, 10) ;
 pair d ; d := (10, 1) ;
 path square ; 
 square := (a--b--c--d--cycle) xsized .75TextWidth ;
 
 draw square xsized .75TextWidth;

 draw thelabel.lft("α",point 0 of square) ;
 draw thelabel.lft("β",point 1 of square) ;
 draw thelabel.top("γ",point 2 of square) ;
 draw thelabel.rt("δ",point 3 of square) ;
 \stopMPcode

Instead of using « intersectionpoint » use « Intersectiontimes », this will 
give you the « time » of the intersection of the two paths. If the paths do not 
intersect, than the value is (-1,-1). So you could do something like:

pair checkintersec ;
checkintersec := p[1] intersectiontimes p[2] ;
If xpart(checkintersec) <> -1 : 
draw textext("yes »);
else: 
draw textext(« non »);
fi;

The shortened operation is the solution ! See MetaFun manual section 1.18

\starttext
\startMPpage
z1 = (1cm,3cm) ;
z2 = (5cm, 9cm) ;
draw (z1--z2) shortened -1cm  withcolor blue ;

First « uniformdeviate(1) - 0.5 » could be modified to « uniformdeviate(0.5)».

To add noise, you can use the randomized function of Metafun. For exemple, you 
can write:

draw pp randomized 1cm ;

MetaPost (MetaFun) is taking care of everything regarding units. As you ave 
discovered, everything is translated to a unique internal dimension. So you can 
write:

 a := (1cm,2in) ;

with no problem. The « cm » and « in » parts of the expression will become 
numbers to translate this number on the right unit.

Wolfgang, thanks. I have seen the use if the database module on the wiki, but 
was trying to do without it, the reason is that my documents are often shared 
with colleagues, for which installation of modules is most often very 
difficult. 
Anyway, I will use the database module this time, so simple ! Thanks again.

[NTG-context] startCSV Wiki, Natural Table

2020-11-24 Thread Fabrice L
Hi,

I was using in the past (MKII) a snippet of code to produce (natural) tables 
from CSV. I was trying to compile my code with MKIV, but this does not work 
anymore. As a matter of fact, it doe snot work at all, nor MKII, nor MKIV 
(probably my error !). 

So I came back to the wiki, where my code came from, and the code below is just 
a copy for the wiki. It is supposed to make a table with three columns, but 
there is only one column in the resulting table…  I admit I do not understand 
the code, but is there is missing \eTR somewhere ?

Thanks for any help.
Fabrice.

Ps: in case someone is interested, I use this to produce statistical tables for 
teaching. I can share.. !

Thanks so much for your answer. I had (of course) to install nvim in order the 
code to work, but this works ! Thanks also for your additional work regarding 
the locale setting.. this is really deep magic for me. 

I think the facility to run R code directly from context can open ConTeXt to 
new users. The alliance between R and LaTeX is a winning combination to a lot 
of my colleagues. Do you think this would be appropriate to do a simple page on 
the wiki explaining how R code can be done in ConTeXt, with eventual 
formatting, with some simple examples, or this is too much noise ?

Thanks. Fabrice.

[NTG-context] Filter module for R

2020-06-14 Thread Fabrice L
Hi,Following a question about the broken R module (R the statistical software), Aditya suggested me the filter module (thanks to him). I’m about to distribute a set of course notes to colleagues, and I need to deal with details now. I have one problem and two questions.1) the filter collect R code between \startR / \stopR and submit this code to R. As it can be seen in the following minimal example, when a label contains an accented character (« Fréquence » in my example), the pdf graphic does not contains the « é ». Strangely, the snippet of code (which is saved locally as « test2-temp-R-0.tmp » (for test2.tex)) when submitted with the same command as the filtercommand, works correctly; that means the same file works when submitted to R outside of ConTeXt. I have no idea how to solve this. 2) In a teaching context, we may want sometimes to show the code. The filter module actually permits to show the output of the code submitted to R (which can include or not the input commands); would it be possible to typeset the submitted code ?3) Finally, using "R CMD BATCH… » as the filtercommand add an extra line at the end of the output file which can be typeset to visualize results. Would it be possible by a magic trick to deleter the last line of the file ?Here is a minimal code:% —\usemodule[filter]\defineexternalfilter  [R]  [ filtercommand={R CMD BATCH -q --no-timing --save --restore \externalfilterinputfile\space \externalfilteroutputfile},     output=\externalfilterbasefile.out,     directory=output,     readcommand=\typefile,     read=no,     cache=yes,     purge=yes   ]\starttextSome text...\startR[read=yes]   pdf("RPlots/MyHistogram.pdf",5,5)   X <- rnorm(200,mean=10,sd=2)   hist(X, col =  "red3" ,  xlab="Score QI" , main="", ylab="fréquence")\stopR\externalfigure[MyHistogram.pdf][width=.5\textwidth] \stoptext% —Sorry for the three questions… and thanks for any help.Fabrice.

You are right of course... In fact I already use blocks, for another purpose, 
but I did not think about this solution because I needed a lot of formatting 
(these blocks should occupy whole page, different background color…), but 
blocks can adapt to my current need (I have try this morning) using the 
\setupblock[][before=..,after=…] command. And there is a bonus; I can « collect 
» these blocks and put them all together at the end of my courses notes, this 
is perfect.

Thanks to Aditya, I have succeeded, but it was not trivial for me. So, in case 
somebody someday would need a detailed solution, here is a minimal example, and 
an explanation. 

A buffer « Questions » is defined. If in « ClassRoom » mode, a start/stop « 
Questions » is also defined. So when ConTeXt encounters the \startQuestions / 
\stopQuestions, if the « ClassRoom » mode is enabled, the buffer is processed 
(with some format if needed - framed here for the example), and if the mode « 
ClassRoom » is disabled, then nothing is process. You can add as many 
\startQuestions / \stopQuestions you wish. 


% --
\definebuffer[Questions]

\enablemode[ClassRoom] % Try "On / Off » to process "\startQuestions / 
\stopQuestions » or not.

\startmode[ClassRoom]
 
\definestartstop[Questions][before={\startframedtext\red},after={\stopframedtext\blue}]
\stopmode

\starttext

Before...

\startQuestions
The content of the buffer ! 
\stopQuestions

After...

\stoptext
% --

Thanks Aditya !

[NTG-context] start/stop executed conditionally on mode ?

2020-06-07 Thread Fabrice L
Dear List,

I would like to insert a page using (ideally) start/stop instructions. The 
problem is that this page should be inserted only in a certain mode. Consulting 
the mailing list, I thought the following code was working, but it’s not ! The 
code is executed in the mode as expected, but the following instructions ("Some 
other text... » in the exemple) is not typeset. 

Here is a minimal (not working!) example: 

% 
\unexpanded\def\StartQuestionsList{ 
\startmode[ClassRoom]  \page[yes] Here are some questions: \blank 
}
\unexpanded\def\StopQuestionsList{ 
\page[yes] \stopmode
}
\definestartstop[Questions][
before=\StartQuestionsList,
after=\StopQuestionsList
]


\startQuestions
Question A….
Question B…. 
\stopQuestions

Some other text...
% 


So to be clear, I would like the result in the « ClassRoom » mode to be:
% 
Here are some questions: 

Question A….
Question B…. 

Some other text...
% 

Otherwise to be:
%

Thanks for any help !

Thanks for your answer. I did not know about the filter module. I had a look; 
the module is  powerful… but complex to install. It is not clear for me: this 
module would permits to submit code to R, optionally shows this code in the 
conTeXt document, and includes the output of R ? So is it a modern replacement 
of the r-module ?

Thanks !

I can reproduce your error with MKIV, but this world with lmtx; I think this is 
just too big for MKIV (I’m not sure why !).
Be aware of the difference between « scaled » and « sized ». You can try:

\starttext
\startMPpage
draw externalfigure "dodo.png" sized  5cm shifted (-6cm,0) ;
\stopMPpage
\stoptext

and try:

\starttext
\startMPpage
draw externalfigure "dodo.png" scaled 0.018cm shifted (0,0) ;
draw ((0,0) -- (5cm,0) -- (5cm,5cm) -- (0,5cm) -- cycle ) withcolor red ;
\stopMPpage
\stoptext

In the second case, your image fits (approximately) in a 5cm square.

[NTG-context] Syntax hightlighting

2019-08-28 Thread Fabrice L
Dear list,

I’m using colored verbatim code (for course notes). In the past, I modified 
verb-mp.mkii for the langage I need (SAS). This code works fine with MKII:

%——
\setupcolors[state=start]
\definetyping [MP] [option=MP]

\starttext
A example:
\startMP
draw (0,0) withpen pencircle 1in withcolor red ;
\stopMP
\stoptext
%——

I obtain a color syntax output (« draw » in red, « within » in green for 
example). This code does not work anymore in MKIV (every word is the same 
color, green). There should be a solution ?

Trying to find some help, in the maling list and the « verbatim_text » page on 
Context garden, I found some solutions, like pretty printing, which should work 
on MKIV, but "pret-mp.lua » is found nowhere (nor in the context source 
browser, nor in my recent distribution). 

I must admit I’m lost in all the solutions I found there and there (most of 
them never works out of the box on my installation). Can somebody refer me to a 
simple solution, which permit me to do colored verbatim code, such as I can 
modify a source to insert the keywords of the langage I use ?

Thanks !
Fabrice.

ThePage := \getdocumentargument{Page} ;
draw textext("\externalfigure["  & FileName &"][page="  & ThePage &"]")

Re: [NTG-context] About the macro path intersectionpoint path with Metapost

2019-02-04 Thread Fabrice L
Hi,

I guess your problem is to find the two points of intersection between p
and r ? If so, the problem is that intersectionpoint does return the same
intersection when there is several, as it is the case here. So a quick
solution that you can do is to find intersections for the two part. A
drawing is simple than words ! here is the code to illustrate:

Happy drawing !
F.

  r:= fullcircle scaled 4cm shifted (-2.5cm,2cm);
  b:= fullcircle scaled 2cm shifted (0,-3cm);
  pair A, B ;
  path rprime ;
  % Rprime is a a part of r (drawn in black to see it):
  rprime := r cutbefore point .5 along r;
  A:= p intersectionpoint r ;
  B:= p intersectionpoint rprime ;

I do not know what your example is (but I’m curious: can I see this
somewhere ?).

In my case, the long time needed is to check if a new object does not
intersect with any other object: so when I try to find the maximum size of
the 1000th object at a given position, I have to check with the 999 others…
I do this with « intersectiontimes ». And so on for the 10001th… I have a
course try to find solutions to gain time, like using the coordinate of a
new object: when the coordinate of a new object is chosen, I do not need to
check potential intersections with objects far away… but surprisingly (to
me) this take more time than to blindly check with every object.

This is an algorithmic problem more than a ConTeXt/Metapost one… but I you
have suggestions, I’m sure I can learn !

Below is minimal code. (Just to be clear, this code work, even for 20K
objects.)
Thanks.

\starttext
  \startMPpage
  path Obj[] , ObjTemp ;
  pair ObjPos , Inter ;
  numeric NObj ;
  % Change herte "NObj" to a big numer (says 20K)
  NObj := 100;
  numeric Danger, MaxSize ;

  % Draw an initial object of random shape and random size ;
  Obj[1]:= fullsquare randomized .001in
  scaled (uniformdeviate(.5)*1in)
  shifted (uniformdeviate(5)*1in,uniformdeviate(5)*1in) ;
  Obj[1] := curved ( Obj[1] );
  fill Obj[1] withcolor cyan randomized (.2,1.5);
  draw Obj[1] withcolor black randomized (.2,1.5);

  for i=2 upto NObj :
  Danger := 0;
% Choose a position for the object :
  ObjPos := (uniformdeviate(5)*1in,uniformdeviate(5)*1in) ;
  % Choose a form :
  Obj[i] := fullsquare randomized .01in ;
  Obj[i] := curved ( Obj[i] );
  % Choose a scale so the object does not interact with any other object:
for j=1 upto 50:
   MaxSize := (j*.01in) ;
ObjTemp := Obj[i] scaled MaxSize shifted ObjPos ;
   %draw ObjTemp withcolor magenta ;
   % Check if this temporary object intersect with any other object :
   for k=1 upto (i-1):
string trace ;
 Inter := Obj[k] intersectiontimes ObjTemp ;
 if (xpart Inter) <> -1 : Danger := 1; fi ;
 if Danger=1: MaxSize := ((j-1)*.01in) ; fi;
 exitif Danger = 1;
   endfor;
   exitif Danger = 1;
  endfor ;
  Obj[i] := Obj[i] scaled MaxSize shifted ObjPos ;

  fill Obj[i] withcolor cyan randomized (.2,1.5);
  draw Obj[i] withcolor black randomized (.2,1.5);
  endfor;
  \stopMPpage
\stoptext



So after some hours of computation, this code above breaks for me if the
number of objects,  NObj in my code, is too large. Of course, perhaps an
error occurs at some point and is not caused directly by the number of
objects, because according to what has been said in this thread this should
not be is not a problem. I put below the log. If somebody has a hint in
which direction I should look… thanks !

The max value for that is 2^31, or about 2 billion (and some change).
Are you sure you do not have an eternal loop in your source?

The number of objects I have is clearly less than 2^31, so my problem is
elsewhere then.

I do not think this a loop problem, because the same code runs ok for 15
000 objects, but give an error for 18 000 objects. I’m working to build a
minimal example.

Thanks a lot for the help ! Much appreciated.

Fabrice.



Best wishes,

Do you have  minimal example ?

I have worked on a minimal example today with no success ! What I mean is
that I have rebuilt the same algorithm from scratch in order to show
something minimal to the list, and I do not seem to encounter the problem
anymore ! The problem is that the process take hours of compilations, and
tests are not easy to do. Anyway, I will enrich my « minimal » code to my
« full » code in order to find the difference… and the problem. I will
update the thread as soon as can.

Thanks a lot for helping.

Fabrice.

[NTG-context] Variable instance identifiers exhausted

2018-09-17 Thread Fabrice L
Dear List,

I’m running into a problem in Metapost (using Context of course!)
creating (I think) too many objects; I got this error message:

variable instance identifiers exhausted

I have tried without success to find information and a solution.
Does somebody has a hint to solve this ?

Thanks, Fabrice.

Re: [NTG-context] roadmap

2018-05-16 Thread Fabrice L
Dear all,

> - Check what additional features users want (miss) and decide to what
extent and with what priority we will put effort in this.

As asked, I add a wish to the list...

One feature which I depend a lot on is to be able to do animations: I
actually use the Raw Steps module, by David Munger (dated from 2006), which
still worked, but in MKII only. This is essential for me for my teaching
and talks. During teaching, I have designed courses notes in ConText using
a lot modes of context: the notes are different for the teacher, are
available in two formats for the students (paper and for completion on
tablets), and there is a last version for use in the class by me. In class,
this is essential for me that the material is presented by steps, otherwise
students have a tendency to not listen, or to not try to solve a problem is
the solution is already on the screen. I can not use the animation
tools available in ConTexT using javascript, since I use to show notes in
class an iPad, and I use the stylus to fill blanks present in the notes
(which work great by the way !). The facility to use modes in the courses
notes like this have convinced several of my colleagues to use ConTeXt for
their teaching needs.

Following threads on this list on animations, my understanding is that Hans
is not a great supporter of the method of animations in the Raw Steps
module, for technical reasons.

I have switch to MKIV for others documents, but I'm still on MKII for this
reason for my courses notes, which are 90% one my needs in TeX.

Wolfgang, thanks so much ! Everything is clear now, and works fine.

I will explore the mathalignment environment, which I’m not used to.

1. The bordermatrix code is part of the core and you can remove it from
cont-new.mkiv.

2. To use the \equalign command you have to enable the special meaning of &
in math mode with \setupmathematics[ampersand=normal].

3. User the new mathalignment environment as replacement for \equalign
which avoids special characters like &.

Dear list,

Some months ago, Hans wrote to this list (see below) a macro to do matrix
showing outside the brackets some informations (like we usually do for
Markov chains), but adapted some plain tex code, which worked in MKII). I
have used with success this code since then, but some weeks ago, the
behavior of Context had changed (probably something on my part; I have
updated the installation, but nothing changed).

The problem (I think) is linked to \unprotect \protect. When this code is
put before the \starttext to the the cont-new-mkiv, the border matrix
behave well, but a simple \eqalign like this:

\startformula
\eqalign{ & \lambda=5, \mu =5 \cr
   & \mu=8 \cr }
\stopformula

do not works is I replace «  \lambda » by « \lambda_2 » for example. I have
no idea what’s is going on. here is a minimal example where Hans’s code is
before the \starttext:

[NTG-context] Border matrix

2017-08-28 Thread Fabrice L
Hi,

I’have a lot of courses notes in MKII. I’m trying to move to MKIV. I have a
problem that I’m not able to resolve, to make a border matrix with
brackets. In MKII, I was using a macro, found somewhere, which works great,
but no longer works; here is the macro:

% Border matrix: first line and column are label
\catcode`\@=11\relax
\newdimen\p@renwd
\font\tenex=cmex10 \setbox0=\hbox{\tenex B} \p@renwd=\wd0
\def\bbordermatrix#1{\begingroup \m@th
\setbox\z@\vbox{\def\cr{\crcr\noalign{\kern2\p@\global\let\cr\endline}}%
\ialign{$##$\hfil\kern2\p@\kern\p@renwd&\thinspace\hfil$##$\hfil
  &&\quad\hfil$##$\hfil\crcr
  \omit\strut\hfil\crcr\noalign{\kern-\baselineskip}%
  #1\crcr\omit\strut\cr}}%
  \setbox\tw@\vbox{\unvcopy\z@\global\setbox\@ne\lastbox}%
  \setbox\tw@\hbox{\unhbox\@ne\unskip\global\setbox\@ne\lastbox}%
  \setbox\tw@\hbox{$\kern\wd\@ne\kern-\p@renwd\left[\kern-\wd\@ne
\global\setbox\@ne\vbox{\box\@ne\kern2\p@}%
\vcenter{\kern-\ht\@ne\unvbox\z@\kern-\baselineskip}\,\right]$}%
  \null\;\vbox{\kern\ht\@ne\box\tw@}\endgroup}
\catcode`\@=12\relax

but MKIV gives me the error:

\bbordermatrix #1->\begingroup \m@th

 \setbox \z@ \vbox {\def \cr {\crcr
\noa...

l.26i & j & k & l \cr}




16   \null\;\vbox{\kern\ht\@ne\box\tw@}\endgroup}

17 \catcode`\@=12\relax

I look for solutions on the list, but did not find anything.Here is a
minimal example:

\starttext
A border matrix:
\startformula
\bbordermatrix{
   a & b & c & d \cr
   e & f & G & h \cr
   i & j & k & l \cr}
\stopformula
\stoptext

As I have in my notes hundreds of such matrix, it is really difficult to
change the input format.

Do you know, or can you point me, to a solution ? I’m in a dead end..
Thanks a lot.

  Hello,I tried to use some steps in a presentation.  In the following
conversationhttp://www.mail-archive.com/ntg-context at
ntg.nl/msg53524.html, Wolfgang saysthat we can use the pre-60 module. 
So I tried this snippet:\usemodule[pre-
stepwise]\starttext\StartSteps\startitemize\item one \FlushStep\item two
\FlushStep\item three \FlushStep\stopitemize\StopSteps\stoptextBut it
does not compile:ConTeXt  ver: 2012.09.11 20:36 MKIV  fmt: 2012.9.12

By the way It seemsthere is no Rawsteps module anymore but it still is
in the wiki. Is there issomething like a bugtracker for conteXt, in
order to signal when  a feature isnot working or outdated and signal
when it is back (or definitly depreciate)?(it would be a complementary
tool for the mailing list)   



I'm following on an old thread about the RawSteps Module, which is
broken in MKIV. Trying to move to MKIV, this is a no go for me since I
absolutely need this module for teaching. I've contacted David Munger,
the author of the module,  last September, which had been a real helper
in the past about this module, but he has presently no time to work on
this. If someone know how to fix the problem, I provide a short minimal
exemple:

%%% \enableregime[utf] 
\usemodule[rsteps]

\setupcolors[state=start] \setuppapersize[S4][S4]

\starttext

\StartSteps \startformula 
 \eqalign{ P[\text{atteindre l'état}\ j | \text{partant de } i] 
   = P\left[\bigcup_{n=0}^\infty (X_n=j)| X_0 = i\right]\cr
   \leq \sum_{n=0}^\infty P[X_n=j|X_0=i]\cr 
   =\sum_{n=0}^\infty P_{ij}^n =0 \cr } 
\stopformula \StopSteps

\StartSteps \startformula
\eqalign{
  \FromStep[1][reserve]{P[\text{atteindre l'état}\ j | \text{partant de } i]} 
  \FromStep[1][reserve]{= P\left[\bigcup_{n=0}^\infty (X_n=j)| X_0 = 
i\right]}\cr 
  \FromStep[2][reserve]{\leq \sum_{n=0}^\infty P[X_n=j|X_0=i]}\cr 
  \FromStep[3][reserve]{=\sum_{n=0}^\infty P_{ij}^n =0 }\cr } 
\stopformula
\StopSteps

\stoptext 
 


Also, here is the contextHarden link:

If somebody know another solution to show content by step in a page, I
would be happy to know about it. Thanks, Fabrice.
