BackExercise.tex

Alain Schremmer-2
I found this file as I was cleaning my HD---or trying to.

Here is how it starts:

> \documentclass{book}
> \usepackage{amsmath}
> \usepackage{comment}
> %\chapterstyle{bianchi}
>
> \newoutputstream{backansout}
> \newoutputstream{solutionsout}
>
> \newenvironment{Exercises}
> {\openoutputfile{\jobname.backans}{backansout}
> \openoutputfile{\jobname.solns}{solutionsout}}
> {\closeoutputstream{backansout}
> \closeoutputstream{solutionsout}}
>
> \newcounter{exercise}[section]
> \renewcommand{\theexercise}{\arabic{exercise}}
>
> \newenvironment{exercise}%
> {\refstepcounter{exercise}
> \par\noindent\textbf{\theexercise}.}
> {\par}


It won't compile claiming

Excluding comment 'comment')
./BackExercise.tex:7: Undefined control sequence.
l.7 \newoutputstream
                     {backansout}
?

Does anyone have an idea where it could have come from? (Google, of  
course, thinks it is about back pain.)

Curious regards

The newfile package? Try \usepackage{newfile}

I believe Memoir also affords this capability.

It did not work:

But, in any case, I was just being curious.

Doesn't work or, at least, is not enough. See my response to Adams for  
the console's.

Actually, looking at what the (unknown) author seems to be doing, I am  
beginning to get interested.

So, here is the file:

There was a discussion of and a solution for the problems you are running into with verbatimizing environments
a few years back on this list. As a starting point, take a look at

How did you remember that? I sure don't remember it. I supose it was  
the mention of memoir.

I will start studying the thread tomorrow.
