The LATEX3 Programming Language: A Syntax Proposal for TEX Macro Programming

Download Now Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper describes a TEX based language which is intended to provide a more consistent and rational programming environment for the construction of large scale TEX macro projects such as LATEX. Variants of this language have been in use within the LATEX3 project since around 1990 but the syntax specification to be outlined here should not be considered final. This is an experimental language, and the syntax and command names may (and probably will) change as more experience is gained with using the language in practice.
