This isn’t required, since this is the default.

I would say that the first line isn’t required.

If I’m not wrong, this is also the default.

This might be what you need:

I don’t know why, your sample doesn’t include the matching \stopdocument
command. Could you compile your sample source without errors?

I hope it helps,
