Karl Berry accepted, for publication in the forthcoming issue of TUGBoat, a
short note that I have written. [...]
i look forward to seeing it.
I just cut and paste the text file with url
http://tug.org/TUGboat/sampleart.ltx into a Unix window, under the name
sample.ltx, and issued the command line statement
The relevant part of the Unix display is
lxiv.Princeton.EDU% latex sample
This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)

ahasa, basque, bulgarian, catalan, croatian, czech, danish, dutch,
stonian, finnish, greek, icelandic, irish, italian, latin, magyar, norsk,

this message tells you that the first line
of the file that is being read contains
the command \starttext .

please try again, this time using the file
name sampleart.ltx which isn't likely to
be duplicated elsewhere.
