[NTG-context] Border matrix

Dear list,

Some months ago, Hans wrote to this list (see below) a macro to do matrix
showing outside the brackets some informations (like we usually do for
Markov chains), but adapted some plain tex code, which worked in MKII). I
have used with success this code since then, but some weeks ago, the
behavior of Context had changed (probably something on my part; I have
updated the installation, but nothing changed).

The problem (I think) is linked to \unprotect \protect. When this code is
put before the \starttext to the the cont-new-mkiv, the border matrix
behave well, but a simple \eqalign like this:

\startformula
\eqalign{ & \lambda=5, \mu =5 \cr
       & \mu=8 \cr }
\stopformula

do not works is I replace «  \lambda » by « \lambda_2 » for example. I have
no idea what’s is going on. here is a minimal example where Hans’s code is
before the \starttext:

Thanks for any help. By the way. Is there with MKIV a more direct way to do
such matrix ?

Hi,

Put this in cont-new.mkiv (after \unprotect):

\def\math_border_NC_indeed
{\gdef\math_border_NC{\aligntab}}

\let\math_border_NC\math_border_NC_indeed

\def\math_border_NR
{\glet\math_border_NC\math_border_NC_indeed

Then you can do:

\starttext

A plain border matrix:

\startformula
\bordermatrix{
a & b & c & d \cr
e & f & G & h \cr
i & j & k & l \cr}
\stopformula

\startformula
\bbordermatrix{
a & b & c & d \cr
e & f & G & h \cr
i & j & k & l \cr}
\stopformula

\startformula
\startbordermatrix
\NC a \NC b \NC c \NC d \NR
\NC e \NC f \NC G \NC h \NR
\NC i \NC j \NC k \NC l \NR
\stopbordermatrix
\stopformula

\startformula
\startbbordermatrix
\NC a \NC b \NC c \NC d \NR
\NC e \NC f \NC G \NC h \NR
\NC i \NC j \NC k \NC l \NR
\stopbbordermatrix
\stopformula

\stoptext

Not the full matrix support of MKIV but good enough for plain simulations.
