I am testing Pier 2 some more, and now I got a problem in the Latex writer. Specifically, I do not quite understand the difference between the latex instance variable and the inherited stream one.
Take a look at the snippet below:
latex tab ... square: [ stream nextPutAll: 'width='; print: ((anInternalLink parameterAt: 'width' ifAbsent: [ 100 ]) asNumber / 100.0); ... ]
When executed on a book we have two instance variables:
- stream: instance of GRPharoUtf8CodecStream (inherited)
- latex: instance of BOLatexStream which wraps stream
Now, it so happens that GRPharoUtf8CodecStream does not understand print:, but this method exists in BOLatexStream. I fixed the code by replacing stream with latex in the above method, and it works.
But, there are still other places that use stream, and I think they should all use the BOLatexStream instance instead. So, my question is: Is this intentional? Or maybe should we actually simply override the setting of stream and use that one for everything?
