I started this thread in October 2011 and eventually
reported that I had succeeded. Barbara Beeton asked me to
write up what I had done but I demurred saying
I'm afraid there's not much I can say. The "re-creation"
of the latex209 format went as follows: I found a latex209
tree in a back-up and copied it to my current texmf
tree, added a line to fmtutil.cnf and called fmtutil.
That's about it, except for adding a symbolic link in my
I've just had to figure this out again, and I now agree that
it may indeed be useful to document all the details :+)
If you don't have a latex209 tree, download
unpack it somewhere and move it to
in a local or personal texmf tree.
Add the following line
latex209 tex - latex209.ini
# from eplain:
section of fmtutil.cnf. Do
to find this file. Then do
which should respond with
fmtutil: No errors, exiting successfully.
Finally, add a symbolic link in /usr/local/bin (or whatever
works in Windows) as follows:
ln -s /usr/local/bin/tex latex209
That should do it.
