Sample text

2 Filling in with parameters It’s possible to use macros in much greater generality by allowing parameters to be passed. The idea is somewhat similar to the template line in the \halign environment. First, let’s look at the case where there is one parameter. In this case a control sequence is defined by \def\newword#1{. }. The symbol #1 may appear between the braces (several times) in the definition of \newword. The material between the braces acts like a template. When \newword{. } appears in the text, it will use the definition of \newword with the 57 A TEX intro (Canadian spelling) Section 7: Rolling your own material between the braces inserted into the template at every occurrence of #1 in the original definition.

Note the extra space that results. 6 Devise a method to make a rough table of contents by using \settabs and having entries looking something like: Getting Started \dotfill & \hfill 1 All Characters Great and Small \dotfill & \hfill 9. 2 Horizontal alignment with more sophisticated patterns The \settabs environment is not difficult to use, and once the pattern is set, it can be used repeatedly in different portions of the text that follows. It does have some drawbacks, however. For one, the column size must be set before the entries are known.

Left | \matrix{ a & b & c & d \cr b & a & c+d & c-d \cr 0 & 0 & a+b & a-b \cr 0 & 0 & ab & cd \cr } \right | $$ gives as printed output a b c d b a c+d c−d 0 0 a+b a−b 0 0 ab cd It’s even possible to use \left. and \right. to indicate that the opening or closing delimiter is deleted (note the use of the period). 44 A TEX intro (Canadian spelling) Section 5: No math anxiety here! 30 Use a matrix construction to typeset |x| = x x≥0 −x x ≤ 0 This exercise and more general constructions of this type may also be typeset using the \cases macro.
