I wish to try a feature of AMSTeX (in particular, I wish to try the poor
man's bold font), but without actually installing it in my system yet.
steve schwartz has already answered with the
macro for \pmb . the amstex definition is
based on knuth's.
Can any AMSTeX user out there suggest how to perform a local installation
of the AMSTeX files (in the home directory), just to get it a try?
if your tex installation is based on tex live,
then amstex is already on your system. i'm
assuming that you really mean *ams-tex* and
structure your file like this:
you can get a brief manual for ams-tex via a
it shows only the basics though, not specific
commands like \pmb .
if you really meant ams-latex, \pmb is defined
in the amsbsy package, so
will make it available to you.
