Me'or Einayim II

A commenter to this post pointed out that the Chasam Sofer quotes the Me'or Einayim in his responsa, vol. 5, hashmatos no. 193. Note that this is a letter to R. Ephraim Zalman Margoliyos (author of Beis Ephraim and other classics) whom R. Sofer assumed would not object to the quotation. I also saw that Chasam Sofer quotes the Me'or Einayim in his commentary to Parashas Shemos, in the the big derashah in the middle, p. 5c.

This prompted me to do a Bar Ilan Responsa search and I was surprised at the results:

1. R. Ovadiah Yosef, Yabi'a Omer, vol. 5 Orach Chaim 53:3, quotes Me'or Einayim regarding the text of a Gemara.

2. R. Eliezer Waldenberg, Tzitz Eliezer, vol. 13 18:6, quotes the Tzeror Ha-Kesef who cites the Me'or Einayim regarding whether someone who recites a blessing over a miracle can be counted in the minyan of ten for that blessing.

3. R. Yitzchak Weiss, Minchas Yitzchak vol. 3, 98:7, vol. 4 30:8, quotes the Chasam Sofer in his commentary to Shemos (above) who quotes the Me'or Einayim.

4. R. Meshulam Roth, Kol Mevaser 1:60, quotes the Me'or Einayim in the context of a discussion of ancient chronology. In Kol Mevaser 2:12, he quotes the Me'or Einayim regarding the vowelization of the Bible.
