public class Hfi
extends AbstractHorizontalCode
implements HorizontalSkip

This class provides an implementation for the primitive \hfi.

The Primitive \hfi

The primitive \hfi inserts a new infinite glue into the output. The value of \hfi is an infinite quantity which is less than \hfil. This means that \hfil or a larger value suppress this glue. On the other side if no greater value is present then this value suppresses any finite value.

This quantity has been introduced by Omega.


The formal description of this primitive is the following:
        → \hfi

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
execute in class AbstractCode
