comment Preventing math mode from parsing macro input as math?
@barbarabeeton What sort of electronic form are you referring to above? Available as a webpage rather than a "document"?

comment How to preview images generated by MetaPost?
@aditya It does now it seems. The patch pointed out here seems to have been implemented if the documentation is to be believed. The github listed as the homepage may no longer be where the actual package code resides.

They're super useful! (and there are a bunch of them: \tl_show:N, \seq_show:N, \clist_show:N etc.)

comment bmatrix - buggy? Alternating Color and not completely drawn
It gives what I assume to be the intended output for me, have you updated your packages recently? Also, is this really minimal? Where are the alternating row colors coming from?

comment Test whether last letter of a string is upper case or not
Whether or not that fixes your problem, as a side note, the show commands are really useful for diagnosing this sort of thing. For example, after your first \tl_set:Nn command, add a \tl_show:N \l_ae_lasttoken_tl add have a look at your console.

comment Test whether last letter of a string is upper case or not
You want to expand the contents of the brace groups, the n argument type doesn't do that. If you change your tl_set:Nn's to \tl_set:Nx's, then it looks like your problem might be solved.

comment Are my programming skills transferable to LaTeX and TikZ?
For graphing you may prefer something like metapost or asymptote. Asymptote in particular has a syntax close to that of a regular programming langauge. Similarly, you may prefer the structure of expl3 syntax to that of regular LaTeX.
