Many thanks indeed for your concern.
Yes, you are right I do want the \widering macro from yhmath.sty
Your file will most probably solve this problem once I install the yhcmex
fonts. How can I do this on a mac?
Kindest regards,

I am going to assume that you want the \widering from


This was a bit tough, mostly because there is a bug

in its definition in yhmath.sty. But here goes:

\input eplain

% load the yh font for \wideparen
\font\yhten  =yhcmex10
\font\yhseven=yhcmex10 at 7pt
\font\yhfive =yhcmex10 at 5pt

% set up the math family for using it


% determine the hex digit for this new math family
\edef\yhhex{\ifcase\yhfam 0\or 1\or 2\or 3\or 4\or 5\or 6\or 7\or 8\or
9\or A\or B\or C\or D\or E\or F\fi}

\def\wideparen{\mathaccent"0\yhhex F3}
Test: $\widering{ABC}$.


Oddly, cmr contains the ring accent, but plain TeX doesn't

have a command to access it directly (just \aa for the accent

over an "a").

How can one include the LaTeX command \widering into Eplain?
Many thanks for help.
