The first example was garbled in the original message.
I have been remiss in getting this out. I hope this comes out soon enough for people to review it before the upcoming meeting.
This suggestion is a follow-up to the message
Proposal for Extending Numbering Schemes
1) Add @startingnumber to ordered lists and procedures. This is of value where a short ordered list or procedure is intended to provide an alternative to a section of an existing procedure or list.
To consolidate a set of application to a single server, where all application have the same settings of kernel parameters, use the following procedure:
In the case where the applications require different settings, replace steps 2 and 3 with the following:
Step 2 Substep a
2) Add an optional @linenumberstep (or something similar) that allows the author to override the global setting for line number increment. This is not to say that the stylesheet should not be as intelligent as possible about when to use the step increments based on the length of the example. This is to accommodate those special cases where the stylesheet rules are producing inappropriate behavior for the specific case being dealt with.
Two programs are being discussed, one a short program that interacts with a longer program. The short program is just over the length of listing that triggers numbering by steps in the style-sheets, but the author prefers the emphasis on details that the line numbering provides when every line is numbered. For the fragments of the longer program, the decisions on when to use steps in line numbers are considered appropriate. The author chooses to override the step size (setting @linenumberstep to 1) for the short driver program, while leaving the default values in place for the fragments of the larger program.
This is, perhaps, even more important where the style-sheets do not make any attempt at providing differing behaviors based on the length of the code fragment. The author would be likely to want to override the step increment on more of the program listings.
