What do \makeatletter and \makeatother do?

I'm trying to use a template with the following content:



\setromanfont[BoldFont={Helvetica Bold},ItalicFont={Helvetica Oblique}]{Helvetica}

\title{Towards Storing Point Clouds in PostgreSQL}
\author{Michel Ott}


Then in the ./titlepage file there is the following:

{ \huge \bfseries \@title}\\[2cm]

Now I get the following error:

! You can't use `\spacefactor' in vertical mode. \@->\spacefactor \@m {} l.29 
{ \huge \bfseries \@ title}\\[2cm] ?

How can I fix this?

    The linked question treats the problem, but to an un-experienced user it might not give the clue as what to do. Hence I vote to reopen. – yo' Jan 8 '13 at 22:38
