Hi,

Found an interesting sometxt misfeature.

\startMPinclusions
   boolean test ; test=true ;
\stopMPinclusions

\startbuffer[test]
   if test :
     label(\sometxt{True}, origin) ;
   fi ;
   label(\sometxt{False}, (10,10)) ;
\stopbuffer

\processMPbuffer[test]

\blank[big]

\startMPinitializations
   test := false ;
\stopMPinitializations

\processMPbuffer[test]

Too bad context cannnot parse metapost syntax :)

Workaround (ugly)


\startTeXtexts
   \TeXtext{1000}{True}
\stopTeXtexts

\startbuffer[test]
   if test :
     label(sometxt(1000), origin) ;
   fi ;
   label(\sometxt{False}, (10,10)) ;
\stopbuffer

\processMPbuffer[test]
