Configuring the LaTeX format

There are four configuration files that enable personal preferences to be incorporated into the LaTeX format file latex.fmt. The range of preferences that can be configured by these files is strictly limited as this helps to ensure document portability.

All four files work in the same way: if the file <file>.cfg is found, it will be input by iniTeX; otherwise a default file <file>.ltx will be input instead. Thus, providing one of these .cfg files completely overrides any settings in the corresponding standard .ltx file.
