Conditional language and programmable braille codes

Each window for adding or modifying a Braille code has the Conditions field where you can use a programming language designed specifically for Biblos. All instructions in conditional language are contained in a context menu associated with the field.

Each Braille code has the Conditions field, where you can enter special instructions that guide and condition its use. Each code in this way is an active element of Braille preparation, which can behave differently depending on the conditions specified in it.

The key instructions generally consist of two letters, in which both upper and lower case must be respected. Please note that these instructions are interpreted in flight by Biblos during the preparation of a text. Since they are used hundreds of thousands of times in a few seconds, it was preferable to give them this contracted structure to optimize their use.

The conditional instruction line always results in a true or false Boolean value. If the Boolean expression is TRUE the code is used, ignored if FALSE.
