< Tables_Overview | TABLE >

In March 2009 on request from John Devereux, Hans Hagen provided us with another syntax for tables:

\startluacode
function commands.wiki_to_table(str) -- wrong namespace
   str = string.gsub(str,"%^ *[\n\r]","\\NC\\NR\n")
   str = string.gsub(str,"%^","\\NC ")
   str = string.gsub(str,"| *[\n\r]","\\NC\\NR\n")
   str = string.gsub(str,"|","\\NC ")
   tex.sprint(tex.ctxcatcodes,"\\startTABLE")
   tex.sprint(tex.ctxcatcodes,str)
   tex.sprint(tex.ctxcatcodes,"\\stopTABLE")
end
\stopluacode

\def\startwikitable
 {\bgroup
  \obeylines
  \dostartwikitable}

\long\def\dostartwikitable#1\stopwikitable
 {\ctxlua{commands.wiki_to_table([[\detokenize{#1}]])}%
  \egroup}

\startwikitable
^ Heading 1 ^ Heading 2 ^
| Item 1    | Item 2 |
| Item 3    | Item 4 |
\stopwikitable

\startTABLE
\NC Text 1 \NC Text 2 \NC \NR
\NC Text 3 \NC Text 4 \NC \NR
\stopTABLE
