%C therefore copyrighted by \PRAGMA. See mreadme.pdf for
%C details.

%D The macros described here used to be part of the \type
%D {core-con} module. I decided to move them here when
%D symbolsets saw the light. Let their light shine.

%D \macros
%D   {definesymbol, symbol}
%D
%D Converting numbers or levels into a character, romannumeral,
%D symbol or something else, is supported by many \CONTEXT\
%D commands. Therefore we need a mechanism for linking such
%D numbers to their counterparts.
%D
%D First we take care of symbols. These are for instance used
%D in enumerations and itemizations. We have:
%D
%D \showsetup{definesymbol}
%D \showsetup{symbol}
%D
%D Symbols are simply linked to a tag. Such tags can be numbers
%D or strings.
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \definesymbol [1]       [$\bullet$]
%D \definesymbol [level 5] [$\star$]
%D \stoptyping

% ss:tag     -> symbol
% ss:set:tag -> symbol out of set
% sstag      -> list of symbols in set

%D Since symbols are used frequently in interactive
%D documents, we speed up this one. Well, that was history,
%D since now we simplified things a bit, because the low
%D level macros have been sped up now and then.

\unexpanded\def\symbol       % This one always gobbles spaces,
  {\dodoubleempty\dosymbol}  % so never change it again!

\newif\ifnosymbol \newtoks\everysymbol

% Test test \symbol{whatever}  test \symbol{whatever}.

\def\dosymbol        % so we also handle \symbol{name}

%D \macros
%D   {definefiguresymbol}
%D
%D To simplify defining figure symbols, we offer:
%D
%D \showsetup{definefiguresymbol}
%D
%D By default, such symbols scale along the current bodyfont
%D size or running font size (which is better).

%D \macros
%D   {setupsymbolset,startsymbolset}
%D
%D From these macro definitions one can deduce that symbols can
%D be grouped in symbol sets:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \startsymbolset [navigation 1]
%D   \definefiguresymbol [Next] [mp-symb.1]
%D   \definefiguresymbol [Prev] [mp-symb.2]
%D \stopsymbolset
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D Such a symbol can be typeset with:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \setupsymbolset[navigation 1]\symbol[Next]
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D or simply:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \symbol[navigation 1][Next]
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D Formally:
%D
%D \showsetup{setupsymbolset}
%D \showsetup{startsymbolset}

\let\currentsymboldef\empty

\def\startsymbolset[#1]%
  {\def\currentsymboldef{#1}}

\def\stopsymbolset
  {\let\currentsymboldef\empty}

\newtoks\symbolsetups

\def\setupsymbolset[#1]%
  {\prependtoksonce\fetchsymbol{#1}\to\symbolsetups}

\def\resetsymbolset
  {\symbolsetups\emptytoks}

\def\forcesymbolset[#1]%
  {\symbolsetups{\fetchsymbol{#1}}}

%D \macros
%D   {showsymbolset}
%D
%D \showsetup{showsymbolset}

\fetchruntimecommand \showsymbolset {\f!symbolprefix\s!run}

%D \macros
%D   {usesymbols}
%D
%D \showsetup{usesymbols}

\def\dousesymbols#1%
  {\startreadingfile
     \readsysfile{\truefilename{\f!symbolprefix#1}.\mksuffix}
       {\showmessage\m!symbols1{#1}}
       {\readsysfile{\truefilename{\f!symbolprefix#1}}
          {\showmessage\m!symbols1{#1}}
          \donothing}%
   \stopreadingfile}

\def\usesymbols[#1]%
  {\processcommalist[#1]\dousesymbols}

%D As longs as symbols are linked to levels or numbers, we can
%D also use the conversion mechanism, but in for instance the
%D itemization macros, we prefer symbols because they can more
%D easier be (partially) redefined.
