When I (finally) thought of looking for TeX.fmt myself, I found it here:

Macintosh HD > usr > local > texlive > 2011 > texmf-var > web2c > tex  
 > tex.fmt

Since I sure did not put it there myself, why can't terminal find it?

gpadnom is the name under which I am known by computer MacAlain

Since I would really like to read the TeXbook, I would appreciate it  
very much if someone would help me help terminal find tex.fmt

Hopeful regards
