Oomph! I've used it never before.

Why should I _replace_ this script?

Done. But in which directory I have to save this script?

Why does an engine file like
===== 8>< =====

set path=($path /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current /usr/local/bin)
pdflatex '\def\modus{3} \input "$1"'
===== ><8 =====
not work? (I'm asbolutly a greenhorn in scripting.)

TIA and kind regards. Friedrich
