@DavidCarlisle didn't you want to remove the catcode checks too?
 
@UlrikeFischer tempted, I might yet...

Did you know to what \csname\endcsname expands?
 
12:15 PM
@Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz yes
 
@DavidCarlisle I think it's funny that its string representation is \csname\endcsname... :)
 
@Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz actually that got adjusted in one of DEKs relatively recent tex changes
 
@DavidCarlisle "relatively recent" meaning before my birth?
 
@Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz not unless you are younger than I think. I like this form best:
\endlinechar=-1
\show\
\bye
 
@DavidCarlisle I was born '93.
 
12:21 PM
@Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz the change was in 2014
 
@DavidCarlisle ooh, but then it was before my TeX programming time (but after my first usage).
 
@Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz erorlog.tex shows
* 6 January 2014
C947. Space after \csname\endcsname to match other spaces. (Oleg Bulatov) @262
 
@DavidCarlisle but was that the actual change to show \csname\endcsname instead of something else?
 
@Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz no I think it used to not add a space after (as the actual name had no letters) so \expandafter\noexpand\csname\endcsname hmm would \write out as \csname\endcsnamehmm

I'm so glad that the Americans invented pizza. Such a great idea :) @CarLaTeX

@Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz Fake news
 
3:32 PM
@CarLaTeX I had a pizza today, it was named Americano. Had ham, salami, mushrooms and artichokes on it.
 
@Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz It seems too normal to be American :)
 
@CarLaTeX thought the same :)
 
@Skillmonlikestopanswers.xyz hahaha

@DavidCarlisle See Skype ...
 
@JosephWright yep just got in and got it thanks

Everyone seen the TeXworks testing call?
 
@DavidCarlisle \DeclareFontSeriesChangeRule doesn't do what I expect it to do. Do you know if this should work?
\documentclass[a4paper]{article}

\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\begin{document}

{
  \fontfamily{phv}\fontseries{mc}\selectfont
  THIS IS SAMPLE TEXT \textbf{THIS IS SAMPLE TEXT}%
}

\DeclareFontSeriesChangeRule {mc}{b}{bc}{}
\DeclareFontSeriesChangeRule {m} {c}{c}{mc}
\DeclareFontSeriesChangeRule {m}{mc}{c}{mc}

{\fontfamily{phv}\fontseries{c}\selectfont %grr
  THIS IS SAMPLE TEXT \textbf{THIS IS SAMPLE TEXT}%
}

{\fontfamily{phv}\fontseriesforce{mc}% this works
  \selectfont
  THIS IS SAMPLE TEXT \textbf{THIS IS SAMPLE TEXT}%
@JosephWright no. Where?
 
@UlrikeFischer TeXworks mailing list
@UlrikeFischer texworks@tug.org
@UlrikeFischer I'm going to test out, as always
I like TeXworks ;)

6:10 PM
@JosephWright no?
 
6:26 PM
@DavidCarlisle Johannes asked me about Git and .lvt files
 
@JosephWright this testing idea might catch on
 
7:03 PM
@UlrikeFischer I think I'll leave the catcode settings for now, so push luacolor to ctan?
 
 
1 hour later…
8:23 PM
@JosephWright and I like that TeX works.

@DavidCarlisle fine with me. (In view of the \endlinechar issue a bit catcode paranoia is perhaps ok ;-))
 
8:49 PM
@UlrikeFischer submitted
@MarcelKrüger ^^^ thanks for the help
 
 
1 hour later…
10:03 PM
important new use of luahbtex/lualatex-dev on ctan ...
