# [texhax] the \let command

Here is my minimal counterexample:

\documentclass{article}

\let\tie\t
\renewcommand{\t}{t}
\let\mycedilla\c
\renewcommand{\c}{c}

\begin{document}

\noindent\t bb\\
\tie bb\\
\c b\\
\mycedilla b\\

\end{document}

As you can see \tie does not produce the tie under the b's, so it does not
point to the original definition of \t (once again: I would like something
that points to the original def of \t and keeps doing so when I redefine
\t).

If this isn't clear to you, then I give up.

Best wishes,

Rudolf
