This class provides an implementation for the primitive \relax.

The Primitive \parshape

The primitive \parshape is a declaration of the shape of the paragraph. With its help it is possible to control the left and right margin of the current paragraph.

The shape of the paragraph is controlled on a line base. For each line the left indentation and the width are given. The first argument of \parshape determines the number of such pairs to follow.

When the paragraph is typeset the lines are indented and adjusted according to the specification given. If there are more lines specified as actually present in the current paragraph then the remaining specifications are discarded at the end of the paragraph. If there are less lines then the last specification is repeated.

If several \parshape declarations are given in one paragraph then the one is used which is in effect at the end of the paragraph. This means that later declarations overrule earlier ones.

Syntax

The formal description of this primitive is the following:
    ⟨parshape⟩
        → \parshape ⟨8-bit number⟩ ... 

Examples

    \parshape 3 20pt \linewidth
                20pt \linewidth
                0pt \linewidth 
    \parshape 0 

\parshape as special integer

\parshape acts as special count register which can be queried. It returns the size of the current parshape specification or 0 if none is present.

Examples

    \count1=\parshape

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, Typesetter)

execute

public void execute(Flags prefix,
                    Context context,
                    TokenSource source,
                    Typesetter typesetter)
             throws InterpreterException
Description copied from interface: Code
This method takes the first token and executes it. The result is placed on the stack. This operation might have side effects. To execute a token it might be necessary to consume further tokens.

Specified by:
execute in interface Code
Overrides:
execute in class AbstractCode
Throws:
InterpreterException

Code.execute( 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
