Date: Jan­uary 26, 2011 8:39:02 AM CET
On Sat, 22 Jan 2011 Paul Isam­bert sub­mit­ted up­dates to the texapi and yax pack­age's. Sum­mary de­scrip­tions: texapi: Macros to write for­mat-in­de­pen­dent pack­age's. yax: Yet Another Key Sys­tem. Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
texapi: Bug­fix in loops with passed ar­gu­ments. yax: YaX now sup­ports good old <key>=<value> comma-sep­a­rated lists with \set­pa­ram­e­terlist. Also added: - \copy­pa­ram­e­ter - \deletepa­ram­e­ter - \pa­ram­e­ter­loop (loops over a pa­ram­e­ter's at­tributes and their val­ues)
Th­ese pack­age's are lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/generic/texapi/ http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/generic/yax/ . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=texapi http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=yax if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .
Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

yax – Yet Another Key Sys­tem

YaX is ad­ver­tised as a key sys­tem, but it rather or­ga­nizes at­tributes in pa­ram­e­ters, which pa­ram­e­ters can be ex­e­cuted, so that YaX is halfway be­tween key man­age­ment and macro def­i­ni­tion (and ac­tu­ally hopes to pro­vide a user’s in­ter­face).

Values as­signed to at­tributes can be re­trieved and tested in var­i­ous ways, with full ex­pand­abil­ity en­sured as much as pos­si­ble.

Fi­nally, YaX’s syn­tax is a quite pe­cu­liar (as few braces as pos­si­ble), but may be cus­tomized.

YaX is based on texapi and thus re­quires e-.
