Yes, \bTABLE is nice too. Unfortunately, I need multi-page tables, table
head, table tail, vertical and horizontal lines at the same time.
I believe, the only table environment is \starttables, is this correct?

ERROR: Undefined control sequence.

--- TeX said ---
<argument> \@@tblprefix \c!each 
                                \v!each

Yes, but not multi-page... :(
