Hi all!

Using pictex I always get a broken system:
\! does not match its definition.

Finally I could track this down to this:
Current pictex in TeX live includes piccorr.sty

But piccorr.sty does the following (outline)


  define betweenarrows using lots of \!xloc etc


\def\!qjoin (#1,#2){% ...

I guess everyone understands what I want to say ...

Sample document:

and latex-ing it I get ...
> \!=macro:
qjoin (#1,#2) (#3,#4)->\advance \!intervalno by 1 \!ifcoordmode \edef \!xmidpt{

As soon as the depot is running again we should fix this!

Best wishes
