1. Thanks, I’ll definitely try. Sometime.
2. I know. I even found one of these for one of my students, who is smarter than me and has been using LaTeX all the time. The only problem is doing the translation from one package to another.
Best,
Juan

The problem is, I have scores (a lot!) of files in plain TeX that I have been produced over the years, by me, and/or shamelessly borrowed from more skilled programmers; an example: code that produces a set of problems with hints and answers, so that the hints and the answers are afterwards printed separately. Even more basic things, like matrix commands (\pmatrix{…} and the like) are not recognized by LaTeX, and are not easily translatable. So, I am still struggling with plain TeX.
