public class Ifcat
extends AbstractIf

This class provides an implementation for the primitive \ifcat.

The Primitive \ifcat

The primitive expands the tokens following it until two unexpandable tokens are found. The conditional is true iff the category codes of the two tokens agree.

Syntax

The formal description of this primitive is the following:
    ⟨ifcat⟩
     → \ifcat ⟨token1 ⟨token2 ⟨true text⟩ \fi
     | \ifcat ⟨token1 ⟨token2 ⟨true text⟩ \else ⟨false text⟩ \fi 

Examples

    \ifcat\a\x ok \fi

Method Detail

conditional

public boolean conditional(Context context,
                           TokenSource source,
                           Typesetter typesetter)
                    throws HelpingException
This method computes the boolean value of the conditional. If the result is true then the then branch is expanded and the else branch is skipped. Otherwise the then branch is skipped and the else branch is expanded.

Specified by:
conditional in class AbstractIf
Parameters:
context - the interpreter context
source - the source for new tokens
typesetter - the typesetter
Returns:
the boolean value
Throws:
HelpingException - in case of an error
