Thanks: I had looked but of course didn't find this.

However, I cannot make it work. The code given there,

        \csname NameStack\theFileStack\endcsname
        \csname NameStack\theFileStack\endcsname

gives me "This makes 100 errors; please try again"

With the lines


commented out I don't get any error so this would seem to be where the 
problem is.

I tried with these lines at the end, that is after the definition of 
\stackinput, but it makes no difference.

I looked at the reference, patching techniques, but this is way beyond 
the little bit I have learned so I am crying for help.

Hopeful regards
