I'm interested in learning ConTeXt. In the past I've mainly used LyX, and a bit of LaTeX recently. I was reading Berend de Boer's introduction to ConTeXt, and pretty much the first thing he said about compiling was to use texexec instead of context. Why is this? What are the differences, the pros and cons of each? Or is one a subset/superset of the other?

Cheers

    The document is from 2003. While command names can still be valid, I would advice you to ignore all "technical" descriptions. Context has over the years changed the scripting languages it uses. Today one should use context: wiki.contextgarden.net/Mark_IV. Commented Mar 23, 2012 at 12:45
