`xpeek`: Define commands that peek ahead in the input stream ============================================================ The `xpeek` package provides tools to help define commands that, like [`\xspace`], peek at what follows them in the command stream and choose appropriate behavior. The code is adapted from an answer posted to [TeX.SX] by Enrico “egreg” Gregorio at <http://tex.stackexchange.com/a/59542/2966>, with modifications according to suggestions & contributions by Enrico, Joseph Wright, Bruno Le Floch, & Clemens Niederberger; see <http://tex.stackexchange.com/q/63568/2966> and <http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.tex.latex.latex3/2894>. Installation ------------ This package is distributed as a standalone `.dtx` file, packaged for the LaTeX3 project’s `l3docstrip`. To produce the style file, run this command: pdflatex xpeek.dtx This will also produce a version of the PDF documentation, but with undefined references and without an index or change-log. To get a more useful version of the documentation, run these commands next: pdflatex xpeek.dtx makeindex -s l3doc.ist -o xpeek.ind xpeek.idx makeindex -s gglo.ist -o xpeek.gls xpeek.glo pdflatex xpeek.dtx pdflatex xpeek.dtx These next commands are not strictly necessary, since Acrobat Reader can generate & display thumbnails on-the-fly. But since `l3doc` includes `hypdoc` which includes `thumbpdf`, I may as well generate the pre-rendered thumbnails: thumbpdf xpeek.pdf pdflatex xpeek.dtx Notice that the command for generating the index is different from the one usually used for `ltxdoc`-documented packages; that’s because I’m using the new (and experimental) package `l3doc`.
