Hello,

After having fixed the implementation of \expanded (from errors reported
by Martin Ruckert and from narrowing down done by Phelype Oleinik), the
following code, line 200:

\expandafter\ifx\csname kanjiskip\endcsname\relax
\expandafter\ifx\csname Proteversion\endcsname\relax
\else
1%
\fi

is enough to get things going and apparently, for the primitives, the
things are OK.

But there are numerous places where the engines are explicitely set and,
obviously, this can't go very long without switching code for Prote. The
error is for example this with the only---and not sufficient---code
above:

Hi

The US Government is likely to announce a grant opportunity whose scope can
include making it easier for teachers, professors, and other professionals
to render math-focused (STEM) educational materials accessible to students
with print disabilities. Also within scope is improving the experience of
visually impaired programmers.

The government expects to fund seven projects for three years each at
~$200,000 a year, per project. The estimated start date is September 2022.
This week's special guest is Steve Jacobs (President of the IDEAL Group).
Steve has much experience with US Government-funded projects, from
inception to application to development to completion.

Hello,

Prote has been modified to extend e-TeX 2.6 and has been
incorporated (system dependent bits developed) in the kerTeX
distribution.

Prote passes the TRIP and ETRIP tests and is compliant with the API
contract described in prote_man.pdf.

The LaTeX recipe: latex.sh has been updated so that if Prote exists (in
kerTeX) it is used as the engine for LaTeX, with not only e-TeX
extensions but Prote ones too.

Hi

At the TeX Hour we've discussed the beginner's experience over the past 10
months. Are we ready to make a difference? I think so. The focus of
tomorrow's TeX Hour is what can those who are present do to help beginners
over the next 3 months, 6 months and year.

Date and time: Thursday 7 October, 6.30 to 7.30pm UK time.
UK time now: https://time.is/UK.
