the dae­mon coughed a lit­tle this morn­ing, twice, but didn't dis­tract me from my ded­i­ca­tion to work. hence i have only just got around to these pack­age's: > Name of con­tri­bu­tion: texapi > Author's name: Paul Isam­bert > Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: macros/generic/texapi > Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Macros to write for­mat-in­de­pen­dent pack­age's. > Li­cense type: lppl > > An­nounce­ment text given by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor: > ---------------------------------------------------------------------- > * Re­named \nospace as \skipspace and \split­string as \split­stringat to > avoid clashes with ex­ist­ing com­mands in ConTeXt (spot­ted by Taco > Hoek­wa­ter). > > Users may view the pack­age cat­a­logue en­try at > http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/Cat­a­logue/en­tries/texapi.html > or they may browse the pack­age di­rec­tory at > http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/macros/generic/texapi/ and > Name of con­tri­bu­tion: yax > Author's name: Paul Isam­bert > Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: macros/generic/yax > Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Yet Another Key Sys­tem. > Li­cense type: lppl > > An­nounce­ment text given by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor: > ---------------------------------------------------------------------- > * Sev­eral at­tributes can now be set at once to the same value in \set­pa­ram­e­ter. > * Added \se­tat­tribute (and e-, g- and x-) vari­ants as a faster > al­ter­na­tive to \set­pa­ram­e­ter. > * Bug­fix with ConTeXt (thanks to Taco Hoek­wa­ter). > ---------------------------------------------------------------------- > > Users may view the pack­age cat­a­logue en­try at > http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/Cat­a­logue/en­tries/yax.html > or they may browse the pack­age di­rec­tory at > http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/macros/generic/yax/ i've in­stalled both pack­age's and up­dated their cat­a­logue en­tries; thanks for the up­loads. of course, the change in the cat­a­logue en­try on the web (small though it be) won't ap­pear un­til some­time tonight, when i'm up­stairs slum­ber­ing fit­fully.

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-.
