\writestatus{loading}{ConTeXt Typesetting Macros / Processors}

%D For the moment manipulators are loaded here too, as they're in the same
%D category as processors. This might change. (They are used in publications.)



%D Processors are used when we cannot easily associate typesetting directives
%D with (for instance) structural elements. Instead of ending up with numerous
%D additional definitions we can group treatments in so called processors.
%D An example of where processors can be used is in separator sets (these are
%D related to typesetting numbers using structure).
%D \starttyping
%D \defineprocessor[demo][style=\bfb,color=red]
%D \stoptyping
%D This defines a processor named \type {demo}. Such a name ends up as prefix in
%D for instance:
%D \starttyping
%D \defineseparatorset [demosep] [demo->!,demo->?,demo->!,demo->?] [demo->@]
%D \stoptyping
%D Here the \type {!} and \type {?} are just the seperator characters that end
%D up between part, chapter, section, etc.\ numbers. The third argument defines the
%D default. When a separator is inserted, the \type{demo} processor will be applied.
%D Here the number will be separated by red slightly bigger than normal bold
%D exclamation marks and questionmarks
%D Valid keys for defining a processor are \type {style}, \type {color}, \type {left},
%D \type {right}, and \type {command} (the given command takes one argument).


\installcommandhandler \??processor {processor} \??processor

    \clf_registerstructureprocessor{\currentprocessor}% global, but it permits using processor that are yet undefined
\to \everydefineprocessor

%D The following command can be used by users but normally it will be
%D invoked behind the screens. After all, processor prefixes need to
%D be split off first. At the \LUA\ end we do check for a processor
%D being registered anyway.




%D \startbuffer
%D \defineprocessor[first]        [style=bold]
%D \defineprocessor[last] [first] [color=red]
%D \applyprocessor{first}{hans} \applyprocessor{last}{hagen}
%D \stopbuffer
