There is an explanation of the purpose of many of these flags at ContextFlags

Listing Context Flags using PGLabs

You can obtain a complete list of contextFlags from one of the current contexts using the PGLabs and this code snippet:

Context("Vector");
TEXT(Context()->{name}, $BR);
TEXT(pretty_print( Context()->{flags} ));

You could also load in one of the customized contexts such as contextCurrency.pl

loadMacros("contextCurrency.pl");
Context("Currency");
Context()->flags->set(trimTrailingZeros=>1);
TEXT(Context()->{name}, $BR);
TEXT(pretty_print( Context()->{flags} ));

which will produce the output below. Notice that the trimTrailingZeros flag has been set to 1 (the default is 0 ).

Listing Context Flags in an existing WeBWorK question

  • Set your Context, e.g.
Context("Your Context Here"); or don't do anything to see flags from the current context
  • Enter the text
TEXT(
    TEXT( pretty_print(Context()->{flags}));
);
  • View the problem

The file PGinfo.pl has other macros that can be used in a PG problem to discover what flags and constants are defined in the current environment type:

loadMacros("PGinfo.pl");
listVariables();

This will print (too much) information.
