Date: Au­gust 20, 2008 4:47:44 PM CEST
This pack­age has been in­stalled at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your lo­cal mir­ror. Thanks again, Jim Hef­feron Saint Michael's Col­lege ....................................................................... The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor: Name of con­tri­bu­tion: ver­ba­tim­box Author's name: Steven B. Se­gletes Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /macros/la­tex/con­trib/ver­ba­tim­box Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Store ver­ba­tim text in a LaTeX box, for use in places where ver­ba­tim en­vi­ron­ment is not al­lowed. Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
Do you need to in­clude blocks of ver­ba­tim text in­side fig­ures or ta­bles? The ver­ba­tim en­vi­ron­ment is not com­pat­i­ble with some of these other en­vi­ron­ments. But now, the verb­box en­vi­ron­ment al­lows you to in­put ver­ba­tim text and store it in a LaTeX box. That box then be­comes gen­er­ally us­able in all other LaTeX en­vi­ron­ments, and can be sim­ply re­called. This style there­fore al­lows for a greater use of the ver­ba­tim en­vi­ron­ment within other LaTeX con­structs where ver­ba­tim was pre­vi­ously in­ac­ces­si­ble.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/ver­ba­tim­box . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/ver­ba­tim­box (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear).

ver­ba­tim­box – De­posit ver­ba­tim text in a box

The pack­age pro­vides a verb­box en­vi­ron­ment (which uses tech­niques sim­i­lar to those of the boxed­ver­ba­tim en­vi­ron­ment of the more­verb pack­age) to place its con­tents into a glob­ally avail­able box, or into a box spec­i­fied by the user.

The global box may then be used in a va­ri­ety of sit­u­a­tions (for ex­am­ple, pro­vid­ing a replica of the boxed­ver­ba­tim en­vi­ron­ment it­self). A valu­able use is in places where the stan­dard ver­ba­tim en­vi­ron­ment (which is based on a trivlist) may not ap­pear.

The pack­age makes use of the ver­ba­tim pack­age (which is a re­quired part of any dis­tri­bu­tion).
