public class Lastnodetype
extends AbstractReadonlyCount

This class provides an implementation for the primitive \lastnodetype.

The Primitive \lastnodetype

The primitive \lastnodetype inspects the last node in the typesetter and returns a count value according to the node type found. The following table shows the values returned:

-1no node; i.e. the list is empty
0char node
1hlist node
2vlist node
3rule node
4insertion node
5mark node
6adjust node
7ligature node
8discretionary node
9whatsit node
10math node
11glue node
12kern node
13penalty node
14unset node (not used in ExTeX)
15math mode nodes


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

                  throws HelpingException,
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.

context - the interpreter context
source - the source for new tokens
typesetter - the typesetter to use for conversion
the converted value
HelpingException - in case of an error
TypesetterException - in case of an error in the typesetter
