l3­ex­per­i­men­tal – Ex­per­i­men­tal 3 con­cepts

The l3­ex­per­i­men­tal pack­ages are a col­lec­tion of ex­per­i­men­tal im­ple­men­ta­tions for as­pects of the 3 ker­nel, deal­ing with higher-level ideas such as the De­signer In­ter­face. Some of them work as stand alone pack­ages, pro­vid­ing new func­tion­al­ity, and can be used on top of with no changes to the ex­ist­ing ker­nel.

The present re­lease in­cludes:

  • l3bench­mark for mea­sur­ing the time taken by to run cer­tain code;
  • l3c­ctab, sup­port for sav­ing and restor­ing cat­e­gory codes en masse in a ta­ble;
  • l3­color, sup­port for set­ting col­ors us­ing a range of color mod­els;
  • l3­draw, a code-level in­ter­face for con­struct­ing draw­ings;
  • l3str, sup­port for string ma­nip­u­la­tion;
  • l3sys-shell, which pro­vides ab­strac­tions for com­mon shell func­tions like file dele­tion and copy­ing;
  • xcoffins, which al­lows the align­ment of boxes us­ing a se­ries of ‘han­dle’ po­si­tions, sup­ple­ment­ing the sim­ple ref­er­ence point;
  • xgal­ley, which con­trols boxes re­ceiv­ing text for type­set­ting.
