comment Why does no one fix eqnarray?
@StevenB.Segletes I have had the same thought myself. You joke, but in all the time I have wondered about this, this has seemed the only reason that made even a little sense. I mean latex wasn't always 30 years old, so surely at some point it was discovered by someone that eqnarray was broken, and someone decided it shouldn't be fixed.

comment Why does no one fix eqnarray?
A reason is, what a reason is, I guess.. however, I am still perplexed.. How can the fact that latex core is in such a poor state that it oughtn't be used without amsmath, be a justification for not fixing it? I should think it the contrary. Also, if people were fixing it with hacks like that, why wasn't it fixed then, once and for all? Surely the hacks just prove people knew about the problem and didn't fix it, or?

\parbox will do the same, but you have set a width: \parbox[t]{5cm}{foo\\bar}
