Like the description environment this set of commands is useful to describe words. Using this environment the description of each word is displayed beneath one another.
The xlist environment starts with !begin_xlist and finishes with !end_xlist. You have to tell UDO in brackets how wide it should indent the descriptions of each item. Usually you use the longest word in brackets. Each word that has to be described has to used inside the brackets of the !item command.
You can use the xlist environment inside other (xlist) environments, too.
UDO offers you the following environments: !begin_xlist [description environment:] !item [itemize environment:] for itemizations !item [enumerate environment:] for enumerations !item [description environment:] for descriptions !item [xlist environment:] for lists (discussed in this section) !end_xlist
UDO offers you the following environments:
|itemize environment:||for itemizations|
|enumerate environment:||for enumerations|
|description environment:||for descriptions|
|xlist environment:||for lists (discussed in this section)|
The command !compressed can also be used for xlist environments. To get a compressed list just add !compressed at the end of the line that contains !begin_xlist. Once more a compressed example:
!begin_xlist [description:] !compressed !item [itemize:] Itemizations !item [enumerate:] Enumerations !item [description:] Descriptions !item [xlist:] Lists !end_xlist
Since Release 6 UDO offers three additional environments that are similar to the xlist environment. In contrast to the xlist environment the items will be displayed in bold, italic or typewritered text.
The following example shall demonstrate the results:
!begin_xlist [typewritered:] !item [normal:] !.. !end_xlist !begin_blist [typewritered:] !item [bold:] !.. !end_blist !begin_ilist [typewritered:] !item [italic:] !.. !end_ilist !begin_tlist [typewritered:] !item [typewritered:] !.. !end_tlist
You have to notice some aspects:
]you have to quote it with an exclamation mark so that UDO will recognize that this
]shall be part of the item and shall be displayed on the
/has to follow or UDO would protect the closing bracket instead of outputting an exclamation mark.
