A new package has been installed at tug.ctan.org, and it should make its way to your favorite mirror in a day or two. Thanks again, Jim Hefferon ====================================================================== The following information was provided by the package's contributor. Name of contribution: switcheml Author's name: Charles Duan Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/switcheml Summary description: Obfuscates email addresses so they are unreadable to email harvesters License type: lppl Announcement text given by the package's contributor: - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- switcheml provides one main command, "\switcheml{EMAIL}", that obfuscates an email address EMAIL by rearranging it so that, while it prints correctly on the page, it is unreadable by email address harvesters (typically used by spammers). - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- You can have a look at the package at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/switcheml although you may get a better network connection by visiting a mirror of CTAN that is near to you; see http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/README.mirrors

switcheml – Obfuscate email addresses (now obsolete)

The package (roughly) parses an email address, and writes it out as a series of boxes in a jumbled order, but with positioning commands to make the result print correctly. This performance will confuse address-harvesters that look inside your PostScript or PDF files on the web.

This package is considered obsolete; its facilities are now provided by the randtext package.
