My first try at using multido and stalled straight away! This is probably obvious but, unfortunately, not to me!

% Mil TeX 2.9 TexStudio using XeLatex
\multido{}{3}{\Tex }

Just get 3 lines of "Undefined control sequence. \multido{}{3}{\Tex }"

Do I have to install multido outside if Mik TeX? There is a multido.tex here:-

C:\Documents and Settings\admin\Application Data\MiKTeX\2.9\tex\generic\multido\multido.tex

The error message is

! Undefined control sequence.
<inserted text> \Tex 

l.6 \multido{}{3}{\Tex }

showing the undefined command is \Tex (should be \TeX)

  • Thank you. To try mitigate my stupidity I must mention this one-liner is a gross reduction from trying to get Herbert Voss's multido to work in the \psLame example (pp 545) - from his excellent book on pstricks. Must be a typo on my part, somewhere. I shall now try and work back up the tree as it were! tvm – jss Sep 14 '16 at 19:32
