the daemon coughed a little this morning, twice, but didn't distract me from my dedication to work. hence i have only just got around to these package's: > Name of contribution: texapi > Author's name: Paul Isambert > Location on CTAN: macros/generic/texapi > Summary description: Macros to write format-independent package's. > License type: lppl > > Announcement text given by the package's contributor: > ---------------------------------------------------------------------- > * Renamed \nospace as \skipspace and \splitstring as \splitstringat to > avoid clashes with existing commands in ConTeXt (spotted by Taco > Hoekwater). > > Users may view the package catalogue entry at > http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/texapi.html > or they may browse the package directory at > http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/macros/generic/texapi/ and > Name of contribution: yax > Author's name: Paul Isambert > Location on CTAN: macros/generic/yax > Summary description: Yet Another Key System. > License type: lppl > > Announcement text given by the package's contributor: > ---------------------------------------------------------------------- > * Several attributes can now be set at once to the same value in \setparameter. > * Added \setattribute (and e-, g- and x-) variants as a faster > alternative to \setparameter. > * Bugfix with ConTeXt (thanks to Taco Hoekwater). > ---------------------------------------------------------------------- > > Users may view the package catalogue entry at > http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/yax.html > or they may browse the package directory at > http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/macros/generic/yax/ i've installed both package's and updated their catalogue entries; thanks for the uploads. of course, the change in the catalogue entry on the web (small though it be) won't appear until sometime tonight, when i'm upstairs slumbering fitfully.

yax – Yet Another Key System

YaX is advertised as a key system, but it rather organizes attributes in parameters, which parameters can be executed, so that YaX is halfway between key management and macro definition (and actually hopes to provide a user’s interface).

Values assigned to attributes can be retrieved and tested in various ways, with full expandability ensured as much as possible.

Finally, YaX’s syntax is a quite peculiar (as few braces as possible), but may be customized.

YaX is based on texapi and thus requires e-.
