public class Fontcharwd
extends AbstractCode
implements ExpandableCode, CountConvertible, DimenConvertible, Theable

This class provides an implementation for the primitive \fontcharwd.

The Primitive \fontcharwd

The primitive \fontcharwd is a read-only dimen register which corresponds to the width of a character in a given font. If the character is not defined in the font then 0pt is returned.

Syntax

The formal description of this primitive is the following:
    ⟨fontcharwd⟩
       → \fontcharwd ⟨font⟩ ⟨character code⟩ 

Examples

    \fontcharwd\tenrm `a

public Fontcharwd(java.lang.String name)
Creates a new object.

Parameters:
name - the name for debugging
Method Detail

convertCount

public long convertCount(Context context,
                         TokenSource source,
                         Typesetter typesetter)
                  throws InterpreterException
Description copied from interface: CountConvertible
This method converts a register into a count. It might be necessary to read further tokens to determine which value to use. For instance an additional register number might be required. In this case the additional arguments Context and TokenSource can be used.

Specified by:
convertCount in interface CountConvertible
Parameters:
context - the interpreter context
source - the source for new tokens
typesetter - the typesetter to use for conversion
Returns:
the converted value
Throws:
InterpreterException - in case of an error
See Also:
CountConvertible.convertCount( de.dante.extex.interpreter.context.Context, de.dante.extex.interpreter.TokenSource, de.dante.extex.typesetter.Typesetter)

convertDimen

public long convertDimen(Context context,
                         TokenSource source,
                         Typesetter typesetter)
                  throws InterpreterException
Description copied from interface: DimenConvertible
This method converts a register into a dimen. It might be necessary to read further tokens to determine which value to use. For instance an additional register number might be required. In this case the additional arguments Context and TokenSource can be used. The return value is the length in scaled points.

Specified by:
convertDimen in interface DimenConvertible
Parameters:
context - the interpreter context
source - the source for new tokens
typesetter - the typesetter to use for conversion
Returns:
the converted value in sp
Throws:
InterpreterException - in case of an error
See Also:
DimenConvertible.convertDimen( de.dante.extex.interpreter.context.Context, de.dante.extex.interpreter.TokenSource, de.dante.extex.typesetter.Typesetter)

expand

public void expand(Flags prefix,
                   Context context,
                   TokenSource source,
                   Typesetter typesetter)
            throws InterpreterException
Description copied from interface: ExpandableCode
This method takes the first token and expands it. The result is placed on the stack. This means that expandable code does one step of expansion and puts the result on the stack. To expand a token it might be necessary to consume further tokens.

Specified by:
expand in interface ExpandableCode
Parameters:
prefix - the prefix flags controlling the expansion
context - the interpreter context
source - the token source
typesetter - the typesetter
Throws:
InterpreterException - in case of an error
See Also:
ExpandableCode.expand( de.dante.extex.interpreter.Flags, de.dante.extex.interpreter.context.Context, de.dante.extex.interpreter.TokenSource, de.dante.extex.typesetter.Typesetter)

the

public Tokens the(Context context,
                  TokenSource source,
                  Typesetter typesetter)
           throws InterpreterException
Description copied from interface: Theable
This method is the getter for the description of the primitive.

Specified by:
the in interface Theable
Parameters:
context - the interpreter context
source - the source for further tokens to qualify the request
typesetter - the typesetter to use
Returns:
the description of the primitive as list of Tokens
Throws:
InterpreterException - in case of an error
