That's normal.

The TeX Book by Donald Knuth (texbook.tex or some more in knuth.zip)?  
It's on DVD in source. There is always documentation on ɛ-TeX or e- 
TeX (/usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf-dist/doc/etex/base/etex.html -> / 
usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf-dist/doc/etex/base/etex_ref.html) and  
pdfTeX ('texdoc pdftex-a'). Since epstopdf.sty is by Heiko Oberdiek,  
it's probably useful to read his pdftexcmds and maybe more!

After years of being a (La)TeX author one knows what one needs to  
know and where it was found – and I am just an interested amateur!

It's both, because LaTeX is a lot of prepared TeX macros. And amongst  
them one always needs to use some "plain TeX."


I'll see whether I can improve tif2png – and I also don't promise  
anything!
