public class OmathcodePrimitive
extends AbstractAssignment
implements CountConvertible, Theable

This class provides an implementation for the primitive \mathcode.

The Math Primitive \omathcode

The math primitive \omathcode sets a math code for a character. For this purpose it takes a character and a math code as arguments.

The math code is made up of three components: the class, the family, and a character.

TODO missing documentation

If the math code of a character has the special value "8000000 then it is treated like an active character. In this case the expansion is initiated.

Syntax

The formal description of this primitive is the following:
    ⟨omathcode⟩
      → \omathcode ⟨character code⟩ ⟨equals⟩ ⟨omega math code⟩
        

Examples

    \omathcode`.="41  
    \omathcode`.={}

Constructor Detail

OmathcodePrimitive

public OmathcodePrimitive(CodeToken token)
Creates a new object.

Parameters:
token - the initial token for the primitive
Method Detail

assign

public void assign(Flags prefix,
                   Context context,
                   TokenSource source,
                   Typesetter typesetter)
            throws HelpingException,
                   TypesetterException
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.

Specified by:
assign in class AbstractAssignment
Parameters:
prefix - the prefix controlling the execution
context - the interpreter context
source - the token source
typesetter - the typesetter
Throws:
HelpingException - in case of an error
TypesetterException - in case of an error in the typesetter
See Also:
AbstractAssignment.assign( org.extex.interpreter.Flags, org.extex.interpreter.context.Context, org.extex.interpreter.TokenSource, org.extex.typesetter.Typesetter)

convertCount

public long convertCount(Context context,
                         TokenSource source,
                         Typesetter typesetter)
                  throws HelpingException,
                         TypesetterException
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:
HelpingException - in case of an error
TypesetterException - in case of an error in the typesetter

CountConvertible.convertCount( org.extex.interpreter.context.Context, org.extex.interpreter.TokenSource, org.extex.typesetter.Typesetter)

the

public Tokens the(Context context,
                  TokenSource source,
                  Typesetter typesetter)
           throws CatcodeException,
                  HelpingException,
                  TypesetterException
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:
CatcodeException - in case of an error in token creation
HelpingException - in case of an error
TypesetterException - in case of an error
