The pack­age chick­enize pro­vides sev­eral com­mands and Lua func­tions to ma­nip­u­late the in­put or out­put to­kens of any Lua doc­u­ment. It serves mostly ed­u­ca­tional and play­ful us­age, but some func­tions may be used in se­ri­ous doc­u­ments.

To pro­duce the pack­age files, run lu­ala­tex on chick­inize.dtx, wich should re­sult in the cre­ation of the fol­low­ing files: chick­enize.pdf (doc­u­men­ta­tion) chick­enize.tex (plain user in­ter­face) chick­enize.sty ( user in­ter­face) chick­enize.lua (Lua pack­age code) does the ac­tual work You need an up-to-date Live (2016, if pos­si­ble) to use this pack­age. Maybe a full MiK will will also work. (Not tested!) Lua > 0.90 is re­quired for some fea­tures since the cor­re­spond­ing syn­tax has changed!

chick­enize – Use lua call­backs for “in­ter­est­ing” tex­tual ef­fects

The pack­age al­lows ma­nip­u­la­tions of any Lua doc­u­ment (it is known to work with Plain Lua and Lua). Most of the pack­age’s func­tions are merely for fun or ed­u­ca­tional use, but some func­tions (for ex­am­ple, col­orstretch for vi­su­al­is­ing the bad­ness and font ex­pan­sion of each line, and let­terspacead­just do­ing what its name says) could be use­ful in a “nor­mal” Lua doc­u­ment.
