Texutil logoPerl scripts


This was small script that displays information about your current ConTeXT runtime system. Running it would generate output like this:
texexec : TeXExec 5.2.4 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1997-2005
texutil : TeXUtil 9.0.0 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1992-2004
    tex : pdfeTeXk, 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.3)
context : ver: 2005.01.31
cont-en : ver: 2005.01.31  fmt: 2005.5.10  mes: english

This fuctionality has been integrated in ConTeXt, so you can simply run

     texexec --version


This perl/Tk program is a stack-based calculator for units. By coincidence, it uses the exact same units as D.E. Knuth's TeX program. The program uses a reverse polish interface: first you key in the data, followed by the command.

TeXshow-XML is a rewrite of the ConTeXt Perl/TK script texshow. There are some differences though: It reads XML files for the command definitions, and it supports the extended descriptions as found in Patrick Grundlach's TeXshow-web (by means of an extra optional XML file of the form expl-??.xml).

The current version is 0.2, and the status is beta (no documentation either).
