mylatexformat – Build a format based on the preamble of a file

The use of formats helps to speed up compilations: packages which have been dumped in the format are loaded at very high speed. This is useful when a document loads many packages (including large packages such as pgf-TikZ).

The package was developed from the work in mylatex, and eliminates many of the limitations and problems of that package.
