  • Hello Lyn,

    just a very quick question: It is possible to call other mixup scripts from others? I am asking this because i have ended up writing a very big mixup script which is a combination of smallers i ve written for different things and i want to have the opportunity to highlight spans of interest in one go. Is this possible?

    Many thanks

    George

     
  • thanks. i had before but i am slightly confused.

    If i have a mixup file named "example.mixup" to highlight examples

    i just type

    provide 'examples';
    require 'examples', 'example.mixup';
    

    it seems to work but i cannot find in span types "examples" to select. Sorry my question may have the most obvious answer. I  thought by executing the program MT will recognise the "examples" class, no?

    It does not make sense to with provide and require the same type in the same mixup file. Please look at

    minorthird/lib/mixup/time.mixup and minorthird/lib/mixup/date.mixup

    minorthird/lib/mixup/np.mixup and minorthird/lib/mixup/names.mixup

    to see how mixup programs use these statements.
