Undefined control sequence??

Hi 

I'm a new TEX user. I have some problems with my installation and I don't
understand why.

To test my installation, I've written a very simple TEX file:

\documentstyle{article}  
\begin{document}
This is my first document with \LaTeX{}.
\end{document}

and then my log file looks like this:

This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.3.1) (format=tex 2000.10.3)  05 AUG
2009 15:37
**testfile
(testfile.tex
! Undefined control sequence.
l.1 \documentclass
                  {article}
? R
OK, entering \nonstopmode...
! Undefined control sequence.
l.2 \begin
          {document}
The control sequence at the end of the top line of your error message was
never \def'ed. If you have misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the
correct spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue, and I'll
forget about whatever was undefined.

! Undefined control sequence.
l.3 This is my first document with \LaTeX
                                          {}.
The control sequence at the end of the top line
of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct
spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

in fact it seems that my system doesn't know where to look for
the different TEX control sequences... but if I ignore this (by typing
'R') I have a dvi file with all my unformatted text...

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Thanks.

Try the command latex instead of tex, or if you're using a gui, choose
the latex compile option instead of the tex one.

also: \documentstyle is old.  you should use \documentclass{article}
nowadays....
(though that simple a document will work if you latex it.)

The simplest way to stop these error messages is to insert a line
\batchmode
at the start of your file, before the \documentstyle line. You should
find it will then compile cleanly.

You could also try using a version of tex less than 9 years old.

HTH.

If by "cleanly" you mean "without visible messages", then yes,
that will do it. However, every "undefined control sequence"
message means some command is not having its intended
effect. In the OP's example, he will get a document that says:

"    article document This is my first document with ."

with no indication of what went wrong.

undefine a control-sequence
Hello! Just for curiosity: Assume that I have defined in (La)TeX the control-sequence "\foo". Assume that nowhere is written a definition for a control-sequence "\bar". So \bar is not defined. If I want to turn \foo back into a not-defined control-sequence, is it in this case sufficient to write: "\let\foo\bar" ? Is \foo really undefined afterwards or do my macros work for some other weird reason? Is there a reliable convention to leave "\undefined" without definition?

Undefined control sequence because of mbox in caption

PassiveTeX and "Undefined control sequence."
Hello, I use Debian GNU/Linux 3.0r2 which contains teTeX 1.0.2+20011202. This version seems to not include PassiveTeX. Is this true? I downloaded the files from http://www.tug.org/tex-archive/macros/xmltex/contrib/passivetex/ into my working directory. When I apply xmltex on an example FO file, I get the message ! Undefined control sequence. l.31 \XMLstringX \prop@width<>proportional-column-width(1)</>. Can anybody imagine what is going wrong here? Wolfgang ...

Undefined control sequences: \scan@allowedfalse and \pfill
I just started using \index{foo@\textsc{foo}} in a thesis, and I suddenly got > (./thesis.ind > [139] > ! Undefined control sequence. > l.3 \makeatletter\scan@allowedfalse > > ? > ! Undefined control sequence. > <recently read> \pfill > > l.6 ...solute@\textbf {\textit {absolute}}\pfill > 54 It was working fine until I used the @ in \index. I can't trace where \scan@allowedfalse is defined, or what \pfill is supposed to do. This is using texlive-full (2007.dfsg.2-4ubuntu1) under Ubuntu 9.10: This is pdfTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.40.3 (Web2C 7.5.6) LaTeX2e <2005/12/01> .... ) (/usr/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex/base/makeidx.sty Package: makeidx 2000/03/29 v1.0m Standard LaTeX package ///Peter > It was working fine until I used the @ in \index.

Error using the caption package
Hi, I just installed the newest version of the caption package as it was required in order to use subfig. However, now I get an error message upon using the \caption{} command which I, to my surprise, could not find anywhere on the web. Applying pdflatex to the document \documentclass{article} \usepackage{caption}[2007/11/04] \begin{document} \begin{figure}[bt] \centering My figure. \caption{My caption.} \end{figure} \end{document} now results in the following message: ! Undefined control sequence. \caption@dblarg #1->\kernel@ifnextchar [{#1}{\caption@xdblarg {#1}} l.13 \caption{ My caption.} ? When I remove the \caption{} command, there is no problem. What may be the problem? Any help is highly appreciated.
