comment Is it generally a good idea to insert some glue in \vspace?
@DavidCarlisle "TeX has to over-stretch the glue" Why? The \vspacewithglue{0}{1}{1} gives just the posibility of 1 baseline more! Is it possible to stop that strange behevior when one inserts a page break?

Oh! My god! The \vspacewithglue{0}{1}{1} is destroyed everything! I dont understand the reason!

@David Carlisle Dear David I wonder if the use of both arguments like \[5pt plus 5pt minus 1pt] will be more useful than one \[5pt plus 5pt] in the practical point of view.

comment How one could make a package that does not conflict with others?
@Mico Yes! Switches are more preferable to me, no braces no begin-end. Thaks for this nice improvement of your answer!

@UlrikeFischer I think you are right! It is better to let the LaTeX do the ckeck for us! Thanks!

@Mico I have already looked. I don't find where \si is defined. This package has 101 pages. I just want to have some idea how si is defined so that it could accept any new definition without the risk of name clashes! Thanks for your interest!

comment How one could make a package that does not conflict with others?
These commands are very simple indeed. For axample, \bar calls a symbol from a specific font using the command \char" + hex number. I do not like to change this name to someting like \musicbar or similar. because bar is a very common music term! The use of the enviroments has only one danger like \begin{myenv} \begin{myenv} \end{myenv} Because of the nested myenv if one forget the last \end{myenv} then the he will have a problem. So I suggest that it is beter to use "switchers" like \mypackageON and \mypackageOFF. Is it good idea, or it is better to use an enviroment?

@Ulrike Fisher Do you know how these commands si and Si are defined? How one could avoid a conflict using a command like\si{a long text with my coomands.....} There must a mechanism for activation and diactivation!

comment How one could make a package that does not conflict with others?
The idea is very good. But the only problem is when I use a lot of \begin{myenv} \end{myenv} Is it better to make a switch like \mypackageON and \mypackageOFF where in the first case I save the commands to other names .eg. \argoriginal and in the other command I redefine the arg command using \argoriginal? What is your opinion?

comment How to put properly an angle or a bracket at the front or on the top of a box?
@Thurston I tried the following code \makeatletter \newcommand{\raisemath}[1]{\mathpalette{\raisem@th{#1}}} \newcommand{\raisem@th}[3]{\raisebox{#1}{$#2#3$}} \makeatother \def\boxx{\left[ \rule[0ex]{0cm}{2.1cm}\right.} baseline _ $\raisemath{1.9cm}{\boxx }$ \rule[0ex]{3cm}{4cm} The problem is that I can not automate this code to any possible figure..

comment How to put properly an angle or a bracket at the front or on the top of a box?
@Thurston I tried raise but how much should I raise? If I raise the bracket it will go higher than the upper left corner of the box. My question is somehow general. Actually, I have a problem trying to put some comments with a bracket at the middle front of some geometrical objects. I don't want to use many package like tikz or similar..Just a simple idea how to put a nice bracket .at the front of the box with the same height.

comment Define a new command in a `declarative way"
If I understand well, you say that it is impossible to define a function like \bfseries (i.e. \foo text ...) without any need for brackets ? For example something like \redtext.....\blacktext ....(no need of { and } like pressing a button...)

comment Define a new command in a `declarative way"
ManYY Thanks! This is what I was looking for! A question: Why \bfseries works qood even without braces(like pressing a button)? You just write \bfseries and everhing after that is bold! What is the mechanism behind? Another question: What do you mean by verbatim-like commands?
