Text.LaTeX.Base.Syntax

Description

LaTeX syntax description in the definition of the LaTeX datatype. If you want to add new commands or environments not defined in the library, import this module and use LaTeX data constructors.

Synopsis

# LaTeX datatype

data Measure Source

Measure units defined in LaTeX. Use CustomMeasure to use commands like textwidth. For instance:

rule Nothing (CustomMeasure linewidth) (Pt 2)

This will create a black box (see rule) as wide as the text and two points tall.

Constructors

 Pt Double A point is 1/72.27 inch, that means about 0.0138 inch or 0.3515 mm. Mm Double Millimeter. Cm Double Centimeter. In Double Inch. Ex Double The height of an "x" in the current font. Em Double The width of an "M" in the current font. CustomMeasure LaTeX You can introduce a LaTeX expression as a measure.

Instances

 Eq Measure Show Measure Render Measure Texy Measure

data MathType Source

Different types of syntax for mathematical expressions.

Constructors

 Parentheses Square Dollar

Instances

 Eq MathType Show MathType

data LaTeX Source

Type of LaTeX blocks.

Constructors

 TeXRaw Text Raw text. TeXComm String [TeXArg] Constructor for commands. First argument is the name of the command. Second, its arguments. TeXCommS String Constructor for commands with no arguments. TeXEnv String [TeXArg] LaTeX Constructor for environments. First argument is the name of the environment. Second, its arguments. Third, its content. TeXMath MathType LaTeX Mathematical expressions. TeXLineBreak (Maybe Measure) Bool Line break command. TeXOp String LaTeX LaTeX Operators. TeXBraces LaTeX A expression between braces. TeXComment Text Comments. TeXSeq LaTeX LaTeX Sequencing of LaTeX expressions. Use <> preferably. TeXEmpty An empty block. Neutral element of <>.

Instances

 Eq LaTeX Floating LaTeX Undefined methods: asinh, atanh and acosh. This instance is defined in the Text.LaTeX.Packages.AMSMath module. Fractional LaTeX Division uses the LaTeX frac command. This instance is defined in the Text.LaTeX.Packages.AMSMath module. Num LaTeX Careful! Method signum is undefined. Don't use it! This instance is defined in the Text.LaTeX.Packages.AMSMath module. Show LaTeX Typeable LaTeX IsString LaTeX Method fromString escapes LaTeX reserved characters using protectString. Monoid LaTeX Method mappend is strict in both arguments (except in the case when the first argument is TeXEmpty). LaTeXC LaTeX This instance just sets liftListL = id. Render LaTeX Texy LaTeX

data TeXArg Source

An argument for a LaTeX command or environment.

Constructors

 FixArg LaTeX Fixed argument. OptArg LaTeX Optional argument. MOptArg [LaTeX] Multiple optional argument. SymArg LaTeX An argument enclosed between < and >. MSymArg [LaTeX] Version of SymArg with multiple options.

Instances

 Eq TeXArg Show TeXArg Render TeXArg

(<>) :: Monoid m => m -> m -> m

An infix synonym for mappend.

# Escaping reserved characters

Escape LaTeX reserved characters in a String.

Escape LaTeX reserved characters in a Text.

# Syntax analysis

matchCommand :: (String -> Bool) -> LaTeX -> [(String, [TeXArg])]Source

Traverse a LaTeX syntax tree and returns the commands (see TeXComm and TeXCommS) that matches the condition and their arguments in each call.

Arguments

 :: String Name of the command. -> LaTeX LaTeX syntax tree. -> [[TeXArg]] List of arguments passed to the command.

Look into a LaTeX syntax tree to find any call to the command with the given name. It returns a list of arguments with which this command is called.

lookForCommand = (fmap snd .) . matchCommand . (==)

If the returned list is empty, the command was not found. However, if the list contains empty lists, those are callings to the command with no arguments.

For example

lookForCommand "author" l

would look for the argument passed to the \author command in l.

matchEnv :: (String -> Bool) -> LaTeX -> [(String, [TeXArg], LaTeX)]Source

Traverse a LaTeX syntax tree and returns the environments (see TeXEnv) that matches the condition, their arguments and their content in each call.

lookForEnv :: String -> LaTeX -> [([TeXArg], LaTeX)]Source

Similar to lookForCommand, but applied to environments. It returns a list with arguments passed and content of the environment in each call.

lookForEnv = (fmap (\(_,as,l) -> (as,l)) .) . matchEnv . (==)

Arguments

 :: (LaTeX -> Bool) Condition. -> (LaTeX -> LaTeX) Function to apply when the condition matches. -> LaTeX -> LaTeX

The function texmap looks for subexpressions that match a given condition and applies a function to them.

texmap c f = runIdentity . texmapM c (pure . f)

Arguments

 :: (Applicative m, Monad m) => (LaTeX -> Bool) Condition. -> (LaTeX -> m LaTeX) Function to apply when the condition matches. -> LaTeX -> m LaTeX

Version of texmap where the function returns values in a Monad.

## Utils

Extract the content of the document environment, if present.

Extract the preamble of a LaTeX document (everything before the document environment). It could be empty.
