Hi there !

My name is Fabrice Louche and I'm new to PSTricks (and to this 
mailing-list). I need the package for using SEMINAR, and I have some 
problem with it. When I try to load it, the following messages appear:

This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (no format preloaded)

Runaway argument?

The problematic file is pstricks.tex, which I downloaded from the 
usual server without modifying it.

Does anyone have an idea about the source of this problem ? I use 
OzTex on MacOS X.

Best regards,
