Hi there,

I haven't updated my ConTeXt distribution for a very long time (for
the internet connection problem here) and somehow my network
worked, so I use ctxtools --update to make an update. During the
updating, I got some error message like "I can't find mult-def.tex"
and some other files more. Weird, because I do have those files
and kpsewhich can locate them. I just input the needed files WITH
the path and seemed OK. To make sure, I made another ctxtools --update
and this time no error messages.

Anyway, I compiled a used-to-be-working file and failed because
some "Undefined control sequence" and I found the "undefined"
macros are the \c!xxx and \v!yyy macros which I defined them
\startvariables all
           yyy: yyy

\startconstants all
           xxx: xxx

any explanations?

Best Regards
