This class provides an implementation for the primitive \edef.

The Primitive \edef

TODO missing documentation

Syntax

The formal description of this primitive is the following:
    ⟨edef⟩
       → ⟨prefix⟩ \edef ⟨control sequence⟩ ⟨parameter text⟩ { ⟨replacement text⟩ }

    ⟨prefix⟩
      →
       | \global ⟨prefix⟩
       | \long ⟨prefix⟩
       | \outer ⟨prefix⟩
       | \proteced ⟨prefix⟩

Examples

    \edef#1{--#1--}

Method Detail

assign

public void assign(Flags prefix,
                   Context context,
                   TokenSource source,
                   Typesetter typesetter)
            throws InterpreterException
Description copied from class: AbstractAssignment
The method assign is the core of the functionality of execute(). This method is preferable to execute() since the execute() method provided in this class takes care of \afterassignment and \globaldefs as well.

Overrides:
assign in class Def
Throws:
InterpreterException
