Yes but for some strange reason I have found that it is necessary
with my DTX documentation file to avoid ignoring all blanks in text
of the documentation.

This instruction was remaining from my strimmed down example.

Now I would do a little more complicated thing: pass an optionnal
parameter to the \setmathfont command. In my example, I pass just the extension
(which could be given with file name) but other parameters could be passed.

The following example does not seem to work. Do you have a further idea solution?


\ProvidesExplPackage {test} {2020-05-12} {1.0}
                     {to test some commands}

\tl_const:Nn \c__test_MathFont_tl {Asana-Math}
\tl_const:Nn \c__test_MathFontSpec_tl {Extension=.otf,}

\exp_args:Noo\setmathfont{\tl_use:N \c__test_MathFont_tl} { [ \tl_use:N \c__test_MathFontSpec_tl ] }
%\exp_args:No\setmathfont{\tl_use:N \c__test_MathFont_tl}[Extension=.otf]


  Some text and some math $e^{iπ}+1=0$
