public class Hskip
extends AbstractHorizontalCode
implements HorizontalSkip

This class provides an implementation for the primitive \hskip.

The Primitive \hskip

The primitive \hskip inserts the given amount of glue into the typesetter. If the typesetter is not in a horizontal mode then it is switched to horizontal mode first.

Syntax

The formal description of this primitive is the following:
    ⟨hskip⟩
        → \hskip ⟨Glue⟩  

Examples

    \hskip 1em plus 1pt minus 1pt

Method Detail

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)

getGlue

public FixedGlue getGlue(Context context,
                         TokenSource source,
                         Typesetter typesetter)
                  throws InterpreterException
Description copied from interface: HorizontalSkip
This method acquires horizontal glue.´

Specified by:
getGlue in interface HorizontalSkip
Parameters:
context - the interpreter context
source - the source for new tokens
typesetter - the typesetter
Returns:
the amount of skip
Throws:
InterpreterException - in case of an error
