# [texhax] invalid character in tengtex

Mon Aug 17 10:01:19 CEST 2015

Without access to the original (possibly shortened) doc, it might not be easy to help

But some thing for LaTeX that was made in 1994 might have made some assumptions that are not true any more.

P.S. I've never tried TengTeX so without an mwe I cannot test/help.

I'm getting the following error:

! Text line contains an invalid character.
l.87   \ifx ##2\@lambe {\l at p {\raise.5ex\hbox{^^E
}}{##1}}\else {\l at p ^^E{##1...

In ! tengtex.sty  (TengTeX for LaTeX) 22 September 1994 Version 1.00

Using a hex editor I see:

0A 20 20 5C  69 66 78 20  23 23 32 5C  40 6C 61 6D | .  \ifx ##2\@lam

20 5E 5E 45  7B 23 23 31  7D 7D 5C 66  69 7D 25 0A |  ^^E{##1}}\fi}%.

I don't see any invalid characters. Did I miss it? Any idea how to fix this?

Thanks.
