public class Endcsname
extends AbstractCode

This class provides an implementation for the primitive \endcsname.

The Primitive \endcsname

The macro \endcsname is used in combination with the macro \csname only. Whenever a \endcsname is seen alone it must be an error. Thus thus primitive produces an error message in any case.


The formal description of this primitive is the following:
      → \endscsname  


The following example shows a complicated way to invoke the macro abc. Here the primitive \endcsname is legal. It is consumed by the primitive \csname and not expanded on its own.

   \csname abc\endcsname
