# [texhax] \protect in Plain TeX

\protect is defined in LaTeX but not in Plain TeX. I was wondering if one
also would need to use \protect in Plain TeX for making macro definitions
with moving arguments. If so, then what should you use instead \protect in
Plain TeX or how should \protect be defined for Plain TeX?

In LaTeX, \show\protect gives \relax at the beginning of the document.

Thanks
