error help messages

There are some macros for default warnings/errors. Since I had to look for a while before I could find what they meant, I dicided to make a list. The macros are defined in latex.ltx in /usr/local/share/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base/ (in the part from lterror.dtx).

Note that to use these you need use \makeatletter to enable the use of macros with the @ sign and that you can then use \makeatother to disable them again. See also the TeX faq on http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=atsigns\@ and @ in macro names.

\@eha Your command was ignored.\MessageBreak Type \space I <command> <return> \space to replace it with another command,\MessageBreak or \space <return> \space to continue without it.
\@ehb You've lost some text. \space \@ehc
\@ehc Try typing \space <return> \space to proceed.\MessageBreak If that doesn't work, type \space X <return> \space to quit.
\@ehd You're in trouble here. \space\@ehc
These macros also contain whitespace in the form of \MessageBreak and \space.
