#### Can't use \spacefactor' in vertical mode

Greetings, group. A confernece has provided everyone with a template that
does not seem to work with my LaTeX installation, not even the example TeX
file. When running pdflatex, I get the following for each occurence of
citation in the text:

,----[ Quote ]
| ! You can't use \spacefactor' in vertical mode.
| \@cite ...r \ifx \@tempa \@zero@skip \spacefactor
|                                                 1001 \fi \par \ifnum
| \spac...
| l.124 ...ist of references: Journal~\cite{bulpitt}
----

The corresponding file called cite.sty contains:

,----[  ]
| \def\@cite#1#2{\leavevmode
|
|   \@tempskipa\lastskip \edef\@tempa{\the\@tempskipa}\unskip
|
|   \ifnum\lastpenalty=\z@ \penalty\@highpenalty \fi
|
|  \ifx\@tempa\@zero@skip \spacefactor1001 \fi % if no space before, set flag
|
|   \ifnum\spacefactor>\@m \ \else \hskip\@tempskipa \fi
|
|   \citeleft{#1\if@tempswa \citemid #2\fi
|
|   \spacefactor\@m % punctuation in note doesn't affect outside
|
|   }\citeright}
|
| \edef\@zero@skip{\the\z@skip}
----

I am not too good with raw LaTeX, so could somebody please assist? I have
tried many things already, all in vain.

looks like that copy of cite.sty has a blank line in between any two
lines of text.  if that's really the case, it would explain the
problem, since you'ld go into vertical mode after the \leavevmode on
the first line of the macro.

remove those blank lines (actually, all blank lines) in the copy of
cite.sty

Maybe the problem is just in the style file line endings.
Try to remove all occurrences of <return><return>; sometimes this
happens when transferring files from MS-DOS systems.

The TeX file contains the following in the preamble:

\documentclass{miuaproc}

miuaproc.cls contains

\RequirePackage{cite}

I tried adding "\usepackage{cite}" to the TeX, but it will not compile:

,----[ Error ]
| ! You can't use \spacefactor' in vertical mode.
| \@cite ...\if@tempswa \citemid #2\fi \spacefactor
|                                              \@m }\citeright
| l.126 ...ist of references: Journal~\cite{bulpitt}
----

My bet is that they only test their kit with a Wintendo. *frown*

Thanks for the suggestion,

Roy

archive, as this will give you all the files listed above. When unzipping
onto a computer running Unix or Linux, ensure that text files are converted
from Dos format to Unix format."

This was rather frustrating...

Thanks for the help,

Hi Enrico,

Please see my follow-up to Robin. In the year 2006, we apparently still
suffer from people's unawareness of inter-operability. *sigh*

Many, many thanks,

Roy

I ended up using dos2unix. This entire encoding issue cost me at least half
an hour. Why can't people use impartial formats or at least provide
alternative files? *sigh*

Best wishes,

Roy
