LaTeXML::Core::Token(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation LaTeXML::Core::Token(3pm)

NAME

"LaTeXML::Core::Token" - representation of a Token: a pair of character and category code (catcode); It extends LaTeXML::Common::Object.

Exported functions

"$catcode = CC_ESCAPE;"
Constants for the category codes:

  CC_BEGIN, CC_END, CC_MATH, CC_ALIGN, CC_EOL,
  CC_PARAM, CC_SUPER, CC_SUB, CC_IGNORE,
  CC_SPACE, CC_LETTER, CC_OTHER, CC_ACTIVE,
  CC_COMMENT, CC_INVALID, CC_CS, CC_NOTEXPANDED.
    

[The last 2 are (apparent) extensions, with catcodes 16 and 17, respectively].

"$token = Token($string,$cc);"
Creates a LaTeXML::Core::Token with the given content and catcode. The following shorthand versions are also exported for convenience:

  T_BEGIN, T_END, T_MATH, T_ALIGN, T_PARAM,
  T_SUB, T_SUPER, T_SPACE, T_LETTER($letter),
  T_OTHER($char), T_ACTIVE($char),
  T_COMMENT($comment), T_CS($cs)
    
"@tokens = Explode($string);"
Returns a list of the tokens corresponding to the characters in $string. All tokens have catcode CC_OTHER, except for spaces which have catcode CC_SPACE.
"@tokens = ExplodeText($string);"
Returns a list of the tokens corresponding to the characters in $string. All (roman) letters have catcode CC_LETTER, all others have catcode CC_OTHER, except for spaces which have catcode CC_SPACE.
"UnTeX($object);"
Converts $object to a string containing TeX that created it (or could have). Note that this is not necessarily the original TeX code; expansions or other substitutions may have taken place.

Methods

"@tokens = $object->unlist;"
Return a list of the tokens making up this $object.
"$string = $object->toString;"
Return a string representing $object.
"$string = $token->getCSName;"
Return the string or character part of the $token; for the special category codes, returns the standard string (eg. "T_BEGIN->getCSName" returns "{").
"$string = $token->getString;"
Return the string or character part of the $token.
"$code = $token->getCharcode;"
Return the character code of the character part of the $token, or 256 if it is a control sequence.
"$code = $token->getCatcode;"
Return the catcode of the $token.
