[NTG-context] lmr (texnansi vs ec)

2005-03-26 Thread ishamid
Dear gang,

Why does lmr in ConTeXt use the ec instead of the texnansi encoding? I just 
noticed that all of my macros that use, e.g.,

\char'25

are now bringing up the wrong symbols. Shouldn't ConTeXt default to the 
encoding most consistent with cmr (surely I am not the only one who depended 
on the old TeX encoding-)

[NTG-context] extra_mem_bot.context

2005-03-26 Thread ishamid
Dear musketeers,

This is a note for aleph users. In _both_ texmf.cnf files that come with the 
full ConTeXt distribution, you must comment the line

%extra_mem_bot.context=  400 
[\texmf\web2c, line 503]

%extra_mem_bot.context= 200
[\texmf-local\web2c, line140]

otherwise aleph will crash upon over/underfull 
boxes.

This has actually been noted before; I don't know/remember if a solution was 
ever found.

Ok; it just seems strange that texnansi is not the default, since that's 
closer to Knuth's original. Maybe its because I (like Knuth) am in America 
where we don't have accents-)


Ishamid, \char is wrong approach since it is encoding-dependent
definition. Use glyph name instead, like \endash, \Aacute.

Are those names defined in Plain TeX? But that's a good idea anyway; I'll just 
depend on the ConTeXt framework.

But ... your glyph number 25 is not defined in the texnansi. So what it is?

TeXBook, page 427, character '025
(in ec, \char'10 or \textbreve)

Now that's interesting.

That same bug was plaguing XeTeX versions through 0.88. Jonathan Kew
tracked it down and quashed it. It's a little surprising that the same
thing appeared in e-Omega, as well. Perhaps Jonathan can help you track
it down. (And perhaps kill the bug at a common source?)

This is wonderful news! Although, unless someone else can dive into the aleph 
code we will have to wait for Giuseppe to return from the purgatory of writing 
his doctoral dissertation (soon I hope-)...

Any ideas for a workaround in the meantime?

Hi Hans,

= Original Message From Hans Hagen [EMAIL PROTECTED] =
at the moment the best way of dealing with is is to use texexec's engine 
handler;

locate texexec.ini (or rme) and set

set UseEnginePath to true

after that pdfetex, aleph, xetex, mpost etc will end up on their own path.

I have done that previously and, yes, I do get the subdirectories. But that's 
not the problem. The problem is that aleph is searching for its format in 
pdfetex's subdirectory:

This is Aleph, Version 3.141592-1.15-2.1-0.0-rc4 (Web2c 7.5.3)

Copyright (c) 2002--2004 the Aleph task force
---! c:\CONTEXT\tex\texmf-mswin/web2c/pdfetex/cont-en.fmt was written by 
pdfetex

How do we make aleph search its own subdirectory?

Just to be sure, texexec --verbose gives

setting : 'UseEnginePath' to 'true' for 'all'

RE: [NTG-context] New List: SemiTeX (*Tex for the Semitic Languages)

2005-03-24 Thread ishamid
Hi Fred,

This is very interesting and, certainly, I'd like to join (though your email 
address in hidden in this particular posting-)

Also consider merging this with the aleph list, because the aleph list was 
also intended to discuss most of the same issues, even multilingual TeX issues 
that do not pertain to aleph directly. I hope that the XeTeX people (Hi Adam!) 
will post their bidi developments to the aleph list as well, so we can all be 
in better sync in the future:-) The aleph list is low volume and can certainly 
easily handle the issues you mention without boring anyone;-)

I'm also working on an advanced replacement to ArabTeX, scheduled for release 
later this year. I can send you some samples (just send me your email address)

Eventually I'd like to see the aleph capabilities merged into pdfetex, which 
will make my ConTeXt life much easier (Hi Hans;-)

We live pretty close to one another; I'd be happy to stay in touch, talk, or 
even meet sometime.

Take care
Idris

I would like to announce a new mailing list that I have created called
SemiTeX.

This is intended to be a forum for people concerned with typesetting
Arabic, Hebrew, Aramaic/Syriac, Amharic, and any other Semitic and/or

[NTG-context] dvipdfmx/dvips and a summary

2005-03-24 Thread ishamid
Dear folks,

The dvips/dvipdfmx problem is not limited to aleph in the latest ConTeXt:

===test-3==
\setupoutput[dvi]

\starttext

abc

\stoptext
===

gives

===
$dvipdfmx test3

test3.dvi - test3.pdf

$dvips test3

(www.radicaleye.com)
dvips: ! Couldn't find header file tex.pro
===

I suppose that the transition to lmr is at the root of this. Anyway, I think 
my own problems have been reduced to the following 4:

1. supp-dir needs to be modified or made into an optional module (e.g. 
m-xetex) (so I don't have to modify it every time I update ConTeXt);

2. aleph needs to be taught;-) to look for its format in its own subdirectory 
(related: an aleph.ini should be included so that the plain aleph.fmt can be 
compiled. I also think the minimal context should support plain.fmt, which 
helps in testing etc. right now manfnt is missing);

3. dvips/dvipdfmx need to be taught how to find lmr (and perhaps other fonts? 
a complete font torture test before every release and for users to do their 
own testing is desperately needed I think. );

4. In order to use Gamma, either

i. the basic omega files (with aleph replacing omega.exe) should be included 
in mswincontext.zip; or

ii. I need to know how to get the \ConTeXt tree to properly search the 
\TeXLive tree for the omega files (and for other fonts like cmr, etc). 
Strangely, I was able to get \TeXLive\...\texmf.cnf configured to read the 
\ConTeXt tree, but I was not able to get \ConTeXt\...\texmf.cnf to be able to 
read the \TeXLive tree. Any idea why?

Many many thnx to Hans for all his hard work; I look forward to a reliable 
ConTeXt:-)))

[NTG-context] Path searches (good news!)

2005-03-24 Thread ishamid
Dear cartel,

I've been trying to control the search paths with 
C:\ConTeXt\tex\texmf-local\web2c\texmf.cnf, but I just realized that 
setuptex.bat overrides texmf.cnf. The way I found out is interesting:

Upon running mktexlsr I get the line

mktexlsr: c:/CONTEXT/tex/texmf-project is not a directory. Skipping...

But in \texmf-local\web2c texmf.cnf has, not `texmf-project', but rather 
`texmf-projects' (with plural).  And setuptex.bat is the only file that 
mentions `texmf-project';-)

So now I have configured setuptex.bat to search TeXLive. The only hassle is 
that I must remember to back up my copy the next time ConTeXt updates. In case 
anyone else needs to do this (until Hans provides a better way;-)

===
set TEXMFMAIN=%TEXPATH%texmf
set TEXMFLOCAL=%TEXPATH%texmf-local
set TEXMFFONTS=%TEXPATH%texmf-fonts
set TEXMFEXTRA=%TEXPATH%texmf-extra
REM set TEXMFPROJECT=%TEXPATH%texmf-project
set TEXMFOS=%TEXPATH%texmf-mswin

[NTG-context] 2 questions about texexec.ini

2005-03-24 Thread ishamid
Dear musketeers,

1. I just noted that texexec.ini for mswincontext.zip defaults to tetex, not 
fptex. Is that intentional?

2. Can I configure texexec.ini so that

texexec --make

generates the aleph format in addition to the pdfetex formats? (Of course this 
assume we can solve the search-paths-for-formats problem.)

Thought: Knowing absolutely nothing about texexec's internals, I was thinking 
that one possible solution to the aleph format subdirectory problem is make 
another executable, say

TeXExecutable2

and then

set  TeXExecutable2  to  aleph

A related possiblility is renaming the formats, say:

co-al-en.fmt for aleph
co-tx-en.fmt for tex

etc.

Just a stab in the dark from someone who know virtually nothing; never know 
when you might hit something...

i let my machine generate the tree while i was watching a movie the day 
before
  i uploaded the lot -)

So does that meant the 3-16 upload is the one or no? Also, how do I install it 
(could find no instructions...) it looks like a unix tree...

[NTG-context] Available fonts

2005-03-20 Thread ishamid
Dear crew,

Is there a list of prepackaged fonts/typescripts that comes with 
(fp/MiK/gw/te)TeX/ConTeXt? I think it is important for that info to be made 
very public. showfonts.pdf has at least some of them (plus a couple of 
non-free ones) but I don't know if this is an exhaustive set. A new ConTeXt 
user (especially one from a non-TeX background) should be able to easily find 
a list of the fonts/typescripts available in a full 
(fp/MiK/gw/te)TeX/ConTeXt system.

If I am totally clueless and missed this info, then I apologize:-)

RE: [NTG-context] m-bib issues

2005-03-17 Thread ishamid
= Original Message From Taco Hoekwater [EMAIL PROTECTED] =
 The \startpublication[a= ] option seems to cause m-bib to choke on some
 accents. Here is an example:

It might be a font thing, because my Context does not complain and
typesets the \~\i correctly.

Rather, its almost certainly a macro thing, because I've had to 
redefine/create some accents for transliteration, etc. See below. Anyway, 
these accents work fine outside of the \startpublication[a= ] option.

A log file and/or texexec --version
information is needed.

Silly me, I was half-sleep when I sent that. Try this:

\def\SHIFT#1{\dimen0=.00#1ex \multiply\dimen0 by\fontdimen1\font

sane accents [was RE: [NTG-context] m-bib issues]

2005-03-17 Thread ishamid
Dear fellow conspirators,
 
Is there a saner way to define the following accent using ConTeXt's framework:

\def\SHIFT#1{\dimen0=.00#1ex \multiply\dimen0 by\fontdimen1\font
\kern-.0156\dimen0} % compensate for slant/italic in lower accents

\def\h#1{{\oalign{\relax#1\crcr\hidewidth\SHIFT{34}%
\vbox to.2ex{\hbox{\char'25}\vss}\hidewidth}}}

\def\~#1{{\struttedbox{\accent7E #1}}}

In my own work, the tilda is used over (upper and lower case) `h', `t', and 
`i', and the lower crescent is only used under (upper and lower case) `h'. lmr 
does not have the latter case and I still have a couple of issues with lmr so 
I'd like to maintain control over a few accents for now.

 Dear gang,

 How do I automate initialization of the separate context tree (from
 mswintex.zip)? A simple batch file such as

 
 setuptex c:\context
 texexec foo
 

 does not work; the batch file always turns itself off before texexec can be
 invoked. Can I make the initialization global so that all batch files (such 
as
 those called by WinEDT) will work properly? I added c:\context to the path 
but
 that is not enough.

 BTW: Can initialization be turned off as well?

you can associate batch files to a cmd window, (open action);

can you give me an example?

in winedt you
shoul dadd the lines to their bat files (or ask the author to provide an
initialization option)

Well, the following seems to work for now:


call setuptex c:\context
texexec foo


I am pretty ignorant of DOS but call seems to solve the problem for now. Now 
my WinEDT batch files for pdfetex and aleph can work.

 I really wish that updating/upgrading were not always such a pain...

normally it isn't but currently there are three issues that make it painfull:

- incompatible changes in the tds (enc/map paths)
- changes in pdftex (no config, better map support)
- the transition to latin modern
- (unnoticed) changes in pattern file names
- the usual changes in fonts

I played around for quite some time with the texmf.cnf environment variables 
in both \TeXLive and \ConTeXt trees. I noticed that even when I got \TeXLive 
to search \ConTeXt first, upon compiling it still could not find certain files 
(a tds issue?), while I could never get \ConTeXt to search \TeXLive properly.

This was not helped by the fact that my July04 fpTeX comes with a corrupt 
kpathsea.pdf documentation using type3 fonts!

[NTG-context] Typescript for Times New Toman and Arial

2005-03-17 Thread ishamid
Dear consortium,

Below is a working typescript for times new roman and arial (I'm told that on 
mac the equivalent of arial is helvetica, so this may be os-specific;-)
This combination is required by Springer-Verlag in many of their books.

I have to typeset an article for a Springer volume (their editor could not 
handle my transliteration accents) that will fit in seamlessly with the 
editors' preparation of the rest of the volume. When I am done, I will gladly 
contribute the resulting style so that others who need to prepare something 
for Springer will have something to go on. Maybe this could even be developed 
into a full 
m-spring.tex module.

Anyway, here is the times new roman/arial typescript. Please make 
suggestions/improvements. Also, I'm not sure which math collection works best 
with tnr/arial.

Best
Idris

PS. Yes, I did finally get tnr/arial working, though I've hosed my entire 
TeX/ConTeXt system in the process: in other words, victorious but wounded;-)

I do not know much about the font installation process, but I did
notice that your TeXFont banner indicates that you use a really old

Ok, I've worked around this (still having upgrade troubles...) but there is
still a problem. I created all afm files in a local directory

system_fonts

but TeXFont does not seem to see them:

Why are no afm files found? And why does my new C:\ConTeXt tree recognize

I certainly agree with this sentiment, and will make yet another attempt to

It's the same here; I'll look into it. There may be some os-related syntax

That's where you define which tex-trees you have

new C/Context searched first, your C/Texlive second, one of them should
be set as TEXMFLOCAL, the other as TEXMFMAIN. What does

Configuring 2 trees [was RE: [NTG-context] Times New Roman]

2005-03-16 Thread ishamid
Dear cartel,

= Original Message From Thomas A.Schmitz [EMAIL PROTECTED]

What does

kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFLOCAL
produce?

1.I have 2 trees: C:\Context (from mswintex.zip) and C:\TeXLive (from July04).
 
kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFLOCAL

works for the \Context tree:

C:\ConTeXt\texmf-mswin\bin\kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFLOCAL
c:/ConTeXt/texmf-local

C:\ConTeXt\texmf-mswin\bin\kpsewhich -var-value TEXMFMAIN
c:/ConTeXt/texmf

2. What I would like: how do I properly modify texmf.cnf (presumably 
C:\ConTeXt\texmf-local\web2c\texmf.cnf is the main one) so that

a. C:\ConTeXt is given priority over C:\TeXLive;
b. C:\TeXLive\texmf-var\web2c   formats are searched after
   C:\ConTeXt\texmf-local\web2c
c. C:\ConTeXt utilities like TeXFont install files to
   C:\ConTeXt\texmf-local\
   instead of to
   C:\TeXLive\texmf-local (for some reason the C:\ConTeXt tree does 
recognize C:\TeXLive\texmf-local by default)

Of course, I may be missing the big picture here, in which case please 
enlighten me!

Part of my problem is that

1. apparently I can make both pdfetex and aleph formats in the TeXLive tree 
(efmt and fmt respectively), but only one of them in the ConTeXt tree (both 
are dumped as cont-en.fmt)

2. I can't just dump cont-tmf.zip into TeXLive\texmf-var, because some 
utilities (like texfont.exe) do not get updated or replaced. So I would have 
to manually delete e.g., texfont.exe and replace it with the new texfont.bat, 
making a mess of my TeXLive system.

I really wish that updating/upgrading were not always such a pain...

[NTG-context] automating initialization

Dear gang,

How do I automate initialization of the separate context tree (from 
mswintex.zip)? A simple batch file such as


setuptex c:\context
texexec foo


does not work; the batch file always turns itself off before texexec can be 
invoked. Can I make the initialization global so that all batch files (such as 
those called by WinEDT) will work properly? I added c:\context to the path but 
that is not enough.

BTW: Can initialization be turned off as well?

 just download the windows zip file from our website and install that one
 in a separate tree, e.g. under

 c:\context

 then, you can initialize that tree with

 c:\context\setuptex c:\context

 and voila ...

Ok, I followed the above. Now I have two trees, c:\TeXLive and c:\ConTeXt

Issues:

1. I ``initialized'' the \ConTeXt tree and ran

texexec --make

but no aleph format, so a batch file is called:

cd C:\ConTeXt\texmf-mswin\web2c
aleph --ini *plain \dump
texexec --make en -tex=aleph
aleph --ini *cont-en

but...

C:\ConTeXt\texmf-mswin\web2caleph --ini *plain \dump
! aleph.pool doesn't match; otangle me again (or fix the path).

How do I get aleph working?

2. How do I get my OS to recognize/prioritize the C:\ConTeXt tree (when I call 
texexec from my editor it still calls from c:\TeXLive)? Do I have to uninstall 
ConTeXt from my c:\TeXLive path? What is the cleanest way to do that?

3. I presume that 
\ConTeXt\texmf-local\web2c\texmf.cnf 
is the one 
texexec --make
uses. Have you already optimized/tested 
\ConTeXt\texmf-local\web2c\texmf.cnf 
for aleph (there were a few issues as you may recall...)?

It works fine in TeXLive.

Dear syndicate,

While I have not closely kept up with all developments it seems that 
installation/upgrade procedures have been improved. I also went through a lot 
of pain the last time I upgraded so I ask:

Given that:

1. I have not updated my context since Aug. of last year;

2. my fpTeX is from last July.

What is the wisest and most efficient way to upgrade my ConTeXt distribution 
today?

Should I replace fpTeX (including Aleph) with the ConTeXt/TeX distribution 
from the website?

Are there any Aleph-related issues?

Any tips will be appreciated

the transliteration symbols needed. So the editor has just asked me to typeset
the article for them. My chapter is the only thing holding up the publication
of the book. I need two things very urgently:

1. Setups for Times New Roman (is there a Type1 version that comes with TeX?);

2. I need to replace my footnotes with (aargh!) endnotes. Is there a simple
way to do this?

[NTG-context] html to context

2005-01-15 Thread ishamid
Hi gang,

Have any of you guys a script or something to convert simple html to ConTeXt? 
There are apparently a couple of html2latex converters out there but is there 
anything for ConTeXt?

RE: [NTG-context] dictionary for TeX,/ConTeXt

Hi Mojca,

You can use \enableregime[utf] and write your documents in unicode with
all the accents instead. I sometimes used the spellchecker inside
WinEDT, but I'm no expert in that field. Open office is somehow
inappropriate for writing plain text documents, although I use it
sometimes as spellchecker too.

I use WinEdt too, but how do you directly type unicode? Or is it a keyboard 
thing?

Hi!

I was wondering if anyone has any books to recommend, mainly in the area
of typesetting, i.e., on TeX, typography, and so on.

There should be no need to add aleph.exe to your path if you just refresh the
fndb,

Assuming of course that u put aleph.exe in TeXLive/bin or somewhere similar

Hi

Then I tried the steps Idris recommend once:

 eomega --ini *plain \dump
 eomega --ini *cont-en
 texexec --make en -tex=eomega

 are the relevant commands. eomega _is_ aleph.

I'm sure of course that you replaced `eomega' with `aleph';-)

There should be no need to add aleph.exe to your path if you just refresh the 
fndb, which I'm sure u did also;-)) (I don't know about MacOSX but TeXLive 
contains a shortcut to that command in Programs=TeXLive=Maintanence).

I (or Hans) will send you the stuff Hans sent me if all else fails: that will 
work for sure.

Hi Patrick,

One suggestion for TeXshow-web:-)

The commands are all listed in alphabetical order, which is great. But one 
good help would be an option ordering them by topic. For example, a while back 
I needed a rotation command, and the manual does not discuss many of the 
graphics capabilities of ConTeXt. I finally found \rotate combing through the 
base files (it's not in cont-eni.pdf). It would be very useful to know all 
such graphics commands in ConTeXt. The organization of the Reference Manual of 
Lamport's book on LaTeX, or even the end-of-chapter command summaries of 
cont-eni.pdf, is a good model for this. So if I am looking for a graphics 
command I can look purely alphabetically as it is now, as well as topically, 
which is sometimes more useful.

A related point; in ConTeXt the bar | is an active character, which is not 
Plain behavior. A list of these little special characters would be useful as 
well, especially for macro writers, etc.

In any case, this list of commands is a great contribution, and a topical 
organization would make it greater:=)

All the best
Idris

Does the latest fpTeX carry dvipdfmx (r u still using fpTeX)? I must confess 
I'm still using odvips-ps2pdf for all of my output...

[NTG-context] fighting with footnotes

2004-07-16 Thread ishamid
Dear posse,

I am having trouble with footnotes. For an article, I want some footnotes to
be symbolized by \ast, \dag, etc, but without affecting the numbering of
regular footnotes. For example, the title of article may have a footnote
symbolized by \ast, but the first footnote in the main text should still be
symbolized by `1' (then `2', etc). I tried localfootnotes but I could not get
them placed in the footer at the bottom of the page. [location=page] did not
help.

Related question: can't I just specify a footnote outside the counting
mechanism with any symbol I want at any point in the text, without disturbing
the regular counted footnotes?

I'm also confused by the conversion key. page 93 of the documentation reads:

With the variable conversion you set up the type of numbering. You may even
use your own character, for example an emdash (keyed in as ---­).

But if I do, e.g., conversion={---}, TeX complains of course. What am I
missing?

Related questions:

Where are the conversion keys set 2, set 3, etc. documented?

How can I reset the numbering if I make local changes? For example, I am using
regular default footnotes, then I switch to conversion=set 2, then I want to
reset to the default footnotes without losing my numbering. I thought that
[n=0] etc. might help but that key seems to affect the paragraph formatting of
the footnotes, not the numbering. I tried using \start-\stop but that does not
isolate the counting mechanism apparently.

Fighting TeX is really frustrating sometimes, and I'm sure the answers are
really simple...

Idris
