CTAN Up­date: morewrites

Date: April 14, 2017 9:26:53 AM CEST
Bruno Le Floch sub­mit­ted an up­date to the morewrites pack­age. Ver­sion: 2017-04-10 Li­cense: lp­pl1.3c Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Al­ways room for a new write stream An­nounce­ment text:
This is a rewrite of the morewrites pack­age. - Read streams are also dealt with (mostly: if more than 15 are open at the same time morewrites will fail). - The aux­il­iary file name is now cus­tomiz­able to avoid con­flict with Maple work­sheets. - The num­ber of streams used for morewrites' in­ter­nal pur­poses is cus­tomiz­able. - Some up­dates were needed due to ex­pl3 changes and to LuaTeX changes.
The pack­age’s Cat­a­logue en­try can be viewed at http://ctan.org/pkg/morewrites The pack­age’s files them­selves can be in­spected at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/morewrites/

morewrites – Al­ways room for a new write stream

The pack­age aims to solve the er­ror “No room for a new \write”, which oc­curs when the user, or when the user’s pack­ages have ‘al­lo­cated too many streams’ us­ing \newwrite ( has a fixed max­i­mum num­ber – 16 – such streams built-in to its code). The pack­age hooks into prim­i­tive com­mands as­so­ci­ated with writ­ing to files; it should be loaded near the be­gin­ning of the se­quence of load­ing pack­ages for a doc­u­ment.

The pack­age uses the l3k­er­nel bun­dle.
