The title page, any page, no head/footline using plain+etex+opmac, on a per page basis.

Is there a manual coding solution to a page macro to relax the foot/headline for the page. Below the "idea" not the solution apparently.

\tit Title % Some title command in plain tex

\def\nofootline{\footline{}} % would show an "empty" footline

\nofootline % the \nofootline is applied

\vfill\break % this would end the page

\let\nofootline{\relax} % no longer have the \nofootline having any effect

And the page at hoc would have a footline as defined originally.

Maybe you are finding a macro like \onlythispage:

\def\onlythispage#1=#2{%
   \expandafter\xdef\csname saved\string#1\endcsname{\the#1}%
   \global#1={#2\global#1=\expandafter\expandafter\expandafter
                           {\csname saved\string#1\endcsname}}
}
\def\nofootline{\onlythispage\footline={}} % would show an "empty" footline

\nofootline % the \nofootline is applied

Text, empty footline is here.

\vfill\break % this would end the page

Text, the original footline is here.
