% WAARDELOZE ERROR HANDLER
% THIS RENEWED MODULE WORKS OK BUT STILL LOOKS BAD

%D We felt no need to write our own table building macros,
%D simply because Michael Wichura made a terrific one. This
%D package is quite complete and well documented. In \CONTEXT\
%D we provide a shell for consistent spacing as well as color
%D support. Implementing these features without adapting the
%D original macros is not trivial. One easilly gets conflicts
%D with \type{\omit}, \type{\span} and \type{\noalign}, which
%D means that we end up postponing and overloading macros,
%D mostly global. Now, let's start with loading the main
%D macros:

\doifundefined{BeginTable}{\doinputonce{table.tex}}

\unprotect

%D \macros
%D   {inintable, ifsplittables}
%D
%D First we declare some variables. These show a bit what we
%D are dealing with. First we introdoce some booleans that
%D enable us, inside as well as outside this module, to
%D determine in what mode we are.

\newif\ifintable
\newif\ifsplittables

%D \macros
%D   {tracetablestrue}
%D
%D When I documented this module, I felt the need for tracing
%D options. After implementing this feature, I also added
%D warnings, error recovery and automatic spacing.

\newif\iftracetables

%D We show this feature in an eample that also shows some of
%D the basic table typesetting commands.

%D \stopcombination
%D
%D This table is specified as:
%D
%D \typebuffer
%D
%D This examples shows about the minimum of commands needed to
%D typeset such a table. In this table, the \type {\AR} is
%D automatically translated into the more primitive (but more
%D verbose) commands \type {\SR}, \type {\FR}, \type {\MR} and
%D \type {\LR} commands.

%D
%D {\tracetablesfalse\getbuffer}

%D Sometimes in tables information shows up that is not typed
%D in by the user. These messages give a cue in what aspect a
%D table definition is wrong.

%D Those terrible table has three errors, which all show up in
%D typeset messages. Errors cannot always recovered 100\% and
%D therefore can result in two or more succesive messages, like
%D in the last row.
%D
%D \getbuffer

%D Bringing color into tables is complicated by the mere fact
%D that color is not part of \TEX. The main complication is
%D that we don't know in advance how wide a column will be. I
%D implemented color support in tables in the early 90's
%D because I needed it for some articles on color. I have to
%D admit that I seldom use the mechanism.
%D
%D Most color support in \CONTEXT\ makes use of colored rules.
%D At first sight, one is tempted to implement colors in tables
%D in a similar way, but as said, we don't know the dimensions
%D in advance. It turns out however that we don't have to,
%D simply because alignments take care of stretching rules to
%D the appropritate dimensions. This means that we can provide
%D backgrounds by coloring rules with the height of a row,
%D skipping upwards and finally drawing the content, like in:
%D
%D \gdef\ShowExample
%D   {\startfiguretext
%D      {none}
%D      {\getbuffer}

%D In these examples we can clearly see that for being a real
%D background, the color or gray specification has to precede
%D the content. Just to keep things simple, we can recall this
%D specification later on:
%D
%D \startbuffer
%D \starttable[|c|c|c|]
%D \BC      \BL                  \SR

%D
%D Close study learns that we can put the specification
%D before or after the \type{\HL}, whatever suits best. Keeping
%D track of these specifications is taken care of by the next
%D variables:

\newif   \ifTABLEgrayline    % executing gray line
\newif   \ifTABLEgraydone    % gray line executed
\newtoks \TABLEgraytoks      % gray line specification

\newif\ifTABLEinbreak

%D Nog vervangen:

\def\c!Table{Table}
\def\m!TABLE{TABLE}

%D We already saw that the table macros report errors and
%D provide automatic spacing. These features can only be
%D implemented by keeping track of the state, often the last
%D command on a row.

\chardef\TABLEunknown          = 0

\chardef\TABLEseparaterow      = 1
\chardef\TABLEfirstrow         = 2
\chardef\TABLEmidrow           = 3
\chardef\TABLElastrow          = 4
\chardef\TABLErule             = 5
\chardef\TABLEskip             = 6
\chardef\TABLEautorow          = 7

\chardef\TABLEforcefirstrow    = 1
\chardef\TABLEforcelastrow     = 2

\chardef\TABLEmissingrow       = 1
\chardef\TABLEmissingcolumn    = 2
\chardef\TABLEspanoverflow     = 3
\chardef\TABLEdivisionoverflow = 4

%D We store these states using efficient \type {\chardef}'s.
%D Like most variables, these are global ones. When needed,
%D especially when we flush the backgrounds, we can temporary
%D disable the assignment.

\newif\ifsetTABLEaction

\def\setTABLEaction#1%
  {\ifsetTABLEaction\global\chardef\TABLEaction#1\fi}

\def\setTABLEforce#1%
  {\ifsetTABLEaction\global\chardef\TABLEforce#1\fi}

\def\setTABLEerror#1%
  {\global\chardef\TABLEerror#1}

%D Before we come to using these variables, we redefine and/or
%D adapt some \TABLE\ macros. Within \TABLE's the \type{|} and
%D \type{"} have special meanings in templates and are active
%D during. Their meaning can therefore conflict with those
%D elsewhere defined. To be compatible with traditional \TABLE\
%D as well as \CONTEXT's \type{||} and the active \type{"}
%D extensions for my german friends, we do some catcode magic.

%D As said, the \type{|} and \type{"} active characters are
%D often used for other purposes. By default, the outside
%D meanings are therefore preserved and available inside
%D tables. If for some reason one wants to use the \TABLE\
%D primitives, one can say:
%D
%D \starttyping
%D \ObeyTableBarAndQuote
%D \stoptyping
%D
%D To keep things verbose, as well as to show what \TABLE\
%D commands we affect, we show some meanings.

%D To give an impression of what the (well documented) source
%D of \TABLE\ looks like, we first implement an alternative for
%D the numeric keys. The quantity keys (\type{q} and \type{Q})
%D support the more european way of writing numbers:
%D
%D \startnarrower
%D 100.000.000,00 instead of 100,000,000.00
%D \stopnarrower
%D
%D The next table shows how to use these keys. We use braces
%D instead of brackets because we need brackets to specify the
%D format.

%D
%D Although a more efficient implementation is possible |<|we
%D can for instance share common macros|>| we just adapt a copy
%D of the numeric ones. To permit double loading of this
%D module, we check for the existence of one of the macros.

% %D We also (have to) define a key for \type{\cap}:
%
% \letvalue{!tk<\string K>}=\undefined
%
% \NewFormatKey K%
%   {\ReadFormatKeys b\smallcapped}

%D A few pages back we saw backgrounds, further on we will see
%D colored rules, and here we provide a means to color the
%D entries in a column. (We can of course always use the normal
%D color commands for individual entries.) We could not use the
%D lowercase~\type{c}, because that one is used to force {\em
%D centering}.

%D \NC C{identifier} \NC column entry color          \NC\AR
%D \HL
%D \stoptable

%D To be compatible with the tabulate environment, we also
%D support the \type {l}, \type {c} and \type {r} keys for
%D paragraph entries.

\letvalue{!tk<\string l>}=\undefined

%D We'll see that when we want to give a vertical rule a color,
%D we have to set and reset states. After heavy testing it
%D proved most useful to extend a \TABLE\ primitive with some
%D hooks. One thing to keep in mind is that \type{&} keeps
%D assignments local. Again, we add basic color support.

%D
%D This time each split table gets a head line and ends with
%D a rule. Keep in mind that such heads also apply to the
%D unbroken ones and should be defined local (grouped) if

%D the fact that the stopcondition is interface language

%D \sym{\type{\MR}} end a mid row (between text lines)

%D \stopitemize
%D
%D and best of all:
%D
%D \startitemize[continue]
%D \sym{\type{\AR}} end a row with automatic spacing
%D \stopitemize
%D
%D As far as possible, we report confusing situations. In
%D most cases one can use \type{\AR}, which transfigurates
%D itself into one of the other types.

%D handles alignments, we cannot automate spacing for colored
%D rows and columns.
