# [pdftex] Strangeness with protcode

Sat Feb 15 17:21:00 CET 2003

Greetings,
I'm hoping there is something obvious that I am missing... The output
from the following sample has lines which protrude too
far---significantly. This has not happened with any other files, and I
cannot seem to figure out where the difference is.  Thanks for any

\documentclass[twocolumn]{book}
\input protcode.tex
\pdfprotrudechars=2
\renewcommand\familydefault{ptm}
\def\setupfont{
\setprotcode\font
}
\def\setupfam{
{\setupfont}
{\itshape\setupfont}
{\bfseries\setupfont}
{\itshape\bfseries\setupfont}
}
\AtBeginDocument{
\setupfam
\large\setupfam
\small\setupfam
}
\setlength{\columnsep}{0.4in}
\setlength{\parindent}{-0.1in}
\def\b#1{{\bfseries#1}~}
\def\ib#1{{\itshape#1}}
\small
\begin{document}
