    On p.34 "\errorcontextlines=100\oops" must be changed to
    "\errorcontextlines=100 \oops".
    Because \oops must be read after assignment is done.

Well, I can agree it's worth passing on for his consideration, but
I don't think it "must" be changed because the next (parenthetical)
sentence is "That will usually give you ...", and \oops is unlikely to
to be defined anyway. Anyway, we'll see. --thanks, karl.
