tex lament

O TeX, why are your documents so beautiful but your workings so impenetrable?

Why does changing \hangindent inside a \begingroup inside a \def have no effect? (And if I can't figure this stuff out, who can?)

P.S.: it turns out that the entire TeXbook is available online(!).

•  Without looking at the code you need a \global\hangindent=1.0in or whatever. reply to this
