mcgafter noun

A makeshift instrument or tool (mechanical, electronic or otherwise) whereby one may gaff (poke, hook, hack) something to achieve the desired result. Works better when it gets attached to a mcgoerie*. Very common worldwide especially in parts of Africa where it has been known to be the tool of choice of even high level government officials for all governmental problems.


mcgoerie noun

A well designed tool similar in shape and function to a mcgafter* yet completely different in it's purpose. May also be used on it's own. Uses of this instrument are very rare and appears to only occur in the countries of Namibia, Zimbabwe, Lesotho and South Africa, as well as where former residents of those countries have dispersed abroad.

Pardon me, but the following quote just seemed appropriate. "...I have discovered a truly marvelous demonstration of this proposition that this margin is too narrow to contain." - Fermat :)

comment Execute command stored in aux file
Could the problem of it not executing be related to the fact that according to the TeXbook p. 217 it reads it into a control sequence "and the control sequence is defined to be a parameterless macro..."? Whatever that might entail.
