I'm trying to compile my own version of pdftex which works fine.
However, I must compile my own format file (fmt) for that.
This should be done with
mktexfmt. My problem is that I don't know where to find the souce code for
mktexfmt (for Linux).
Can anybody give me a hint where to find it?
OK, looks like I need a small crash course in the LaTeX architecture.
This is what I understand now:
- I don't need
mktexfmtto create a format, I can use
pdftex -ini -etex
- A format is necessary to teach
pdftexto understand latex
- When I have "teached"
pdftexhow to understand latex I can parse latex files with
pdftexand create pdf files from this
Is this correct?
If so, where do I get a .tex file to create a format? This ctan package looks good, but I cannot download it.
Sorry for beeing so dumb, but until now I only created nice pdfs with latex but I never got that deep into its architecture.
emscripten. Does this help?
