 Re: 'xmarks' package name Phelype Oleinik <[log in to unmask]> Thu, 4 Mar 2021 11:35:12 -0300 text/plain (38 lines) On Thu, Mar 4, 2021 at 11:19 AM Pieter van Oostrum <[log in to unmask]> wrote: > > I am working on a new implementation of my 'extramarks' package, based on the '\marks' command. > To get a clean namespace, I would prefix all internal commands with '\extramarks@', or \extramarks_' in expl3 syntax (which I am slowly learning now). However, this causes the names to get quite long. Hi Pieter, Someone else can give you a better accounting of the current status of xmarks. Regarding the length, if you're using l3doc+docstrip you can write     % \begin{macrocode}     %<@@=extramarks>     % \end{macrocode} at the beginning of the implementation, then for internal commands you can use the @@ syntax instead:     % \begin{macrocode}     \int_new:N \l_@@_some_int     \cs_new_protected:Npn \@@_internal_command: { ... }     % \end{macrocode} then the docstripped code will read     \int_new:N \l__extramarks_some_int     \cs_new_protected:Npn \__extramarks_internal_command: { ... } (for public commands like \extramarks_command: you will need to type the full name, but these are usually a small percentage of the code.) For a few examples you can look at the sources of some expl3 packages like kantlipsum.dtx, siunitx.dtx, or namedef.dtx: all use the @@ syntax. Best, Phelype
