This response seems contradictory to me perhaps because I may
have a faulty understanding of "engine" or there are some
I had though an "engine" file was simply a script that invoked a
specific TeX binary. For example, one of the files I have in the
in the Engines folder contains the following
set path= ($path
It seems like it should not be difficult to implement if then
else clauses to invoke different binaries here based on whatever
criteria was of interest to an user.
What am I missing?
