snapshot – List the external dependencies of a LaTeX document

The snap­shot pack­age helps the owner of a LaTeX doc­u­ment ob­tain a list of the ex­ter­nal de­pen­den­cies of the doc­u­ment, in a form that can be em­bed­ded at the top of the doc­u­ment. It pro­vides a snap­shot of the cur­rent pro­cess­ing con­text of the doc­u­ment, in­so­far as it can be de­ter­mined from in­side LaTeX. If a doc­u­ment con­tains such a de­pen­dency list, then it be­comes pos­si­ble to ar­range that the doc­u­ment be pro­cessed al­ways with the same ver­sions of ev­ery­thing, in or­der to en­sure the same out­put. This could be use­ful for some­one want­ing to keep a LaTeX doc­u­ment on hand and con­sis­tently re­pro­duce an iden­ti­cal DVI file from it, on the fly; or for some­one want­ing to shield a doc­u­ment dur­ing the fi­nal stages of its pro­duc­tion cy­cle from un­ex­pected side ef­fects of rou­tine up­grades to the TeX sys­tem.
