comment Adding vertical lines to each side of a paragraph
Ok I see. I will probably not be able to use your option then, because I unfortunately cannot update the system (yet). Thanks for identifying the problem though!

comment Adding vertical lines to each side of a paragraph
I get the error: I do not know the key '/tcp/borderline vertical', to which you passed '{1pt}{0pt}{black}', and I am going to ignore it. Perhaps you misspelled it.

comment LaTeX conditional expression
@WillRobertson It is also perhaps worth mentioning that the default setting for \newtoggle is false. I say that because I just looked it up after reading your answer. Thanks for this useful answer!

I just dished out €140 for David Bausum's TeX Reference Manual, so I will be delving into all kinds of things that could make me unhappy :D I will follow your advice for now though and live happier.

comment Abstract problem
@ahmed Just provide an example of your code. Unicode characters are unsupported in plain latex without a few tweaks (\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}). Try typesetting your doc using xelatex or reading this: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/34604/…

comment How can I iterate over a newline-delimited text file?
@egreg Ok, another question. Why does using \item as a separator not work even when I surround listprint by an appropriate list environment like enumerate?

comment How can I iterate over a newline-delimited text file?
@egreg Why do you need the \cs_generate_variant:Nn \macmadness_print_list:n { V } ? I get the \NewDocumentCommand{\listprint} calling the \macmadness_print_list:V \l__macmadness_list_name_tl and subsequentially calling \cs_new_protected:Npn \macmadness_print_list:n #1. When is this variant triggered and how?

comment How can I apply a regex (l3regex) on items in a sequence? [LaTeX3]?
@egreg Can I execute an ExecuteMetaData command from the catchfilebetweentags package on each of the list items that the listprint command prints? e.g. like writing some command underneath \macmadness_print_list:V \l__macmadness_list_name_tl? Or do I need to loop over the items again? Nevermind, I think I should just redefine the \macmadness_print_list protected command. How would you inject \ExecuteMetaData[filename (item in list)]{mymetatag}?

Wherein \exp_not:N is located I should have written. There are extra brackets around \exp_not:N that are not in my example. The pair just above { \seq_use:NV \l_macmadness_output_seq \l__macmadness_list_separator_tl }

I've copied your code into mine and it does not work correctly. Are you sure that you did not change anything else? Would you be willing to explain the extra { } where \exp_not: is located, and \exp_not: itself? That seems to be an important step I was missing. Also, the reason why I was looking for \_ is because originally, the code was used outside of a LaTeX3 environment. I had to escape the underscore there. Thanks for that correction.

@DavidCarlisle It can be anything. It is just used between items in the output. \par would list each item vertically.
