@PhelypeOleinik with 199987z\bye it works with 199988z\bye I get Unable to read an entire line- error
 
@DavidCarlisle Try 199989z vs 199990z with pdflatex. The latter I get the Unable to read error, while with the former I get the Emergency stop
 
11:24 AM
@PhelypeOleinik I get unable to read with both, and with one less, it works
 
11:36 AM

@DavidCarlisle birthday quack
 
@PauloCereda birthday dinner happy birthday
 
@DavidCarlisle oh no awwww <3
 
@DavidCarlisle Hmm... Cygwin? I'm on the phone now. I'll check later
 
1:30 PM
@PhelypeOleinik yes
 
@PhelypeOleinik crystal ball guess: \r\n versus \n?
 
@Rmano I don't think so (or at least my files don't have dos endings although the engine may have different behaviour looking for possible \r I suppose.
 
@DavidCarlisle I was thinking that maybe something strange happens if the buffer is full with the \r when looking for the \n --- I suspect that the TeX engines only see \n normally?
 
@Rmano yes but the input I used had no \r
 
Ah. Hmmm. I'll stop, I am not sure if I understood. I suspected that the emergency stop was caused by looking for a \n after a \r with a full buffer...
 
1:48 PM
@Rmano If my files had \r\n line endings I'd have to admit that I was using Windows and that would not do at all.
 
@DavidCarlisle :-) maybe Phelype was using Windows ;-)
 
@Rmano on a recommendation from @egreg perhaps.
 
@DavidCarlisle Sure! When I tried to use such a machine they refused to work, but I suspect it's not only me.
 
@Rmano What kind of savage do you think I am? :-)
@Rmano (no, Linux with \n line endings)
 
@PhelypeOleinik Ouch, sorry ;-)
 
1:55 PM
@Rmano Just kidding. No problem :)
 
I'm on Linux too ;-), although the University is forcing me more and more to use Windows. My new laptop is Windows-only... :-(
They say is for safety and privacy matters (!)
 
@Rmano Oh, the irony :)
 
@Rmano Windows is OK so long as you install an X server so you have access to a proper window system.
 
@Rmano Another amusing thing is when people send email that ends with an "Avast: free of virus" signature
@DavidCarlisle Windows' windows aren't good windows
 
@DavidCarlisle Yes, done that. But reality is that I use the laptop really less that I would in Linux... I installed xournalpp and (given that the gizmo has a pen) I use it folded to review documents mainly (and to meet in Teams).
 
2:03 PM
@Rmano Did you get xournalpp to work properly with pens on Windows? I never managed to get the pressure detection to work on my old laptop.
 
@MarcelKrüger My tablet perhaps doesn't have enough sophistication for me to know :)
 
@MarcelKrüger No, really it sees the pen as a mouse, so it's not so nice. But workable in the end.
 
@Rmano I'm using the Windows version of Xournal++ as the macOS one is .. not quite as happy!
 
@JosephWright there is quite a bit of development going on, so I'll check periodically... but I suppose that the hw thing is difficult.
 
@Rmano That's sad. I thought it might be fixed now since recent versions fixed that issue under Wayland.
 
2:06 PM
@Rmano I have two issues: one is that on macOS it can't access Documents/Downloads/Desktop for security reasons, the other is that for some reason there are a few PDFs that don't read cleanly on macOS but do on Windows
@Rmano I'm only writing text, so it's not an issue for me
 
@MarcelKrüger I had no time (or braveness) to do a proper bug report. Maybe sometimes I'll find the time...
@JosephWright Yes, but to be able to distinguish touch and pen would be nice. On the Wacom tablet on Linux I can write with the pen and scroll with the hand, which is nice. On windows it's a mess...
 
2:35 PM
@DavidCarlisle @AlanMunn a quick fix would be
\makeatletter
\AddToHook{package/before/memhfixc}{
\let\MH@old@endsubappendices\endsubappendices
}
\AddToHook{package/after/memhfixc}{
\def\endsubappendices{\def\theHsection{\theHchapter.\arabic{section}}\MH@old@endsubappendices}
}
\makeatother
I'm going to adjust memhfixc to use
\let\MH@old@endsubappendices\endsubappendices
\def\endsubappendices{\def\theHsection{\theHchapter.\arabic{section}}\MH@old@endsubappendices}
 
@daleif what I don't get, it why this is in a patch file. I mean why can't you simply add \def\theHsection directly to the definition? If hyperref is not loaded it won't do any harm and it if is loaded it is wanted.
 
@MarcelKrüger yay Wayland
 
3:09 PM
@daleif Thanks. I ended up creating an appendix environment and modifying the appendices code instead. This creates a cleaner user interface. My university's requirements are really weird because they want per-chapter appendices to look like chapters. I'm also trying to avoid depending on the new hook system just yet, since lots of users have older distributions or are using Overleaf.
 
3:24 PM
@UlrikeFischer that is probably a good idea
 
 
1 hour later…
4:31 PM
@DavidCarlisle -- But Canada still won't consider letting us in.
@PauloCereda -- Happy! (I didn't remember.)
 
@barbarabeeton thanks <3
 
4:48 PM
@samcarter_looks_forward_TUG'21 ooh
 
 
2 hours later…
6:23 PM
anyone any idea how I got 11 points for this?
 
yo'
@DavidCarlisle could you be rep capped at +11? Maybe because of -1 elsewhere?
 
6:39 PM
@yo' thats what I thought I did an accidental downvote that I reverted though and that doesn't show, but it possibly related, maybe it'll sort itself at next recalc. oherwise I'll need to work to get back to a 1-6 palindrome sequence:-)
 
yo'
@DavidCarlisle :)
 
@DavidCarlisle Either they think your answer was extraordinary good or they gave you some extra points since you have not got so many.
 
@DavidCarlisle that was on Palindrome Day

8:21 PM
Yes, hehe... I was the meaning, there is maybe sth. with ifcase.
But I am sure you would have said that.
