[pstricks] Including Private Header Files Stopped Working

Dear All,

Has the method for including private postscript header files been changed?

For years I have included a private header file (mypstrix.pro) in my postscript documents. An abbreviated version is included at the end of this message. This was subsequently loaded by adding the following two lines to the file pstricks.con. Actually, to a copy of pstricks.con located in my private root.


Now  the command chain:       latex -- dvips
would generate a postscript file with an embedded copy of mypstrix.pro. This has worked seamlessly for at least 9 years. Yesterday it stopped working.

I am using the latest version of MiKTeX 2.9 if it matters.

Is there another way to load private header files that I could try?


%% Begin mypstrix.pro %%
% My own PostScript prologue for pstricks.tex. (Set flag in pstricks.con to use.)
% Version 2004
userdict begin %
/natBase {ENeperian} def %
/avg@ {add 2 div} def % (a+b)/2
/dist@ {sub abs} def % |a-b|
/sinh at t {dup natBase exch exp exch neg natBase exch exp sub 2 div} def %
%% End mypstrix.pro %%
