comment hyperref: how to format text in a forms text-field
@cfr If you have a workable solution please provide an answer with an example which I can try.

btw, the application I'm thinking about is producing "advertisement sheets" as preformatted PDF where only the "price tag" needs to be typed in before printing.

comment hyperref: how to format text in a forms text-field
@cfr Exactly. Obviously, a font would need to be completely embedded to be used in a form field. Answers in Adobe forums tell that much. I know how to get pdftex to completely embed a font. Alas, so far no success to actually get that font to be used in a form field. Maybe an encoding problem? So the question really is how to use an embedded font in a Text Field reliably.

Maybe TikZ \foreach defines a group? In this case the definition would be local to the body of \foreach.

comment How do you define a command to select nested groups?
@FK82 Of course you're free to construct lists any way you want. Experience suggests though that it'll be easiest when either following the TeX or the LISP convention ;-)

Note that a LISP list is also constructed from a binary operator, see S-expression.

Also, a pair would typically look like \do@pair{<tokens1>}{<tokens2>}

comment How do you define a command to select nested groups?
In general, the typical list implementation in TeX looks something like \do@item{<tokens1>}\do@item{<tokens2>}

comment How can I create lambda expressions?
@Manuel This would mean that \the\numexpr\LambdaFunction{2}{#1+#2}{5}{7}\relax would give 12.

@Marko Could you post that as an answer?

comment How can I create lambda expressions?
I have the feeling this is of limited use, because in TeX a "functional" programming style requires expandability. If you would modify your question to request an expandable \LambdaFunction, I would set a huge bounty :-) But my gut says it is impossible in TeX.

@xvtk As you see from the lack of focus in the comments, it is essential that you add more detail to your question. Please edit it according to your comment. Furthermore, you should provide some code as a starting point. If you say "I want to avoid having to manually place each node in its place", maybe you could provide TikZ code for doing it that way and describe in which way you'd want it to change.

@Manuel Relative is, well, relative.
