Well you are the expert of course. I had found that many of my favorite plain
TeX commands were not accepted by LaTeX, which is one of the reasons I
stopped using it except when required by a customer.
I used to call the progam that I execute as "pdftex" by that name, as
distinguished from pdflatex, but I got jumped on by members of this list.
As you know when one uses the command
the Knuth package is automatically included.
So I use the phrase "plain pdftex" to mean I am using pdftex, and not
pdflatex. Many members of the list refer to pdftex when they really mean
pdflatex. I will use any terminology that the list will understand.
