I am baffled. Since I joined the Mac OS TeX community, I was given a method for processing pictures in plain TeX, which has been working seamlessly—until today. 
I had transitioned from TeXtures, which used the \special{…} command for inserting pictures, to a more transparent, and more universally accepted method.

In particular, I used
\input miniltx.tex
and next, something like
and then I inserted pictures using, for example

Today, to my surprise, I found the method is not working anymore.

As soon as the \input miniltx.tex is typeset, I get an error. The console displays:

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.17 (TeX Live 2016) (preloaded format=pdftex)
 \write18 enabled.

Does anyone have an advice?
