|[buffer]||name of the buffer (optionally * refers to the last typeset buffer)|
\typesetbuffer[mybuffer], ConTeXt typesets the buffer
mybuffer (previously defined by command \startbuffer) as an independent file and it includes it in the document as an external image.
To get back the verbatim content of the buffer use the command \typebuffer. And to get the buffer typeset as part of your document (no external processing and inclusion as external figure) use \getbuffer.
For technical reasons , the example below does not work perfectly on this wiki: instead of the PDFs of the typeset buffer, it shows placeholder images.
\starttext \startbuffer [sample] \starttext \startTEXpage[offset=10pt] one \stopTEXpage \startTEXpage[offset=10pt] two \stopTEXpage \startTEXpage[offset=10pt] three \stopTEXpage \stoptext \stopbuffer one: \typesetbuffer[sample][frame=on,page=1] %% the following two commands are commented out to prevent errors: %% they are newer than the wiki’s version of ConTeXt. % two: \externalfigure[\lasttypesetbuffer][frame=on,page=2] % three: \typesetbuffer[*][frame=on,page=3] \stoptext
From version 2013.08.09, when you invoke \typesetbuffer on a buffer already typeset, the buffer won’t be typeset again, but the requested page(s) will be included in the document as external figures. (Both commented commands from sample implement the same functionality.)
- \input - Include the complete content of a text file.
- \startbuffer - Define the content of a temporary buffer.
- \typebuffer - Get back the content of a buffer as verbatim text.
- \getbuffer - Get back the formatted content of a buffer.
