# CTAN Update: newverbs

Date: July 25, 2011 2:30:49 PM CEST
On Sun, 24 Jul 2011 Martin Scharrer submitted an update to the newverbs package. Summary description: New macros to collect macro arguments verbatim License type: lppl Announcement text:
This update provides the new macros `\collectverb` and `\Collectverb` which allow other macros to collect an argument verbatim to either typeset or write it into an auxiliary file, respectively. A `\Verbdef` macro is provided to define verbatim text to a macro which can be used for writing the text to auxiliary files. This differs from the `\verbdef` macro from the `verbdef` package which defines macros with a typesetable version of the verbatim text which cannot be written to auxiliary files.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/newverbs . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/newverbs (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

## newverbs – Define new versions of \verb, including short verb versions

The package allows the definition of \verb variants which add code before and after the verbatim text (e.g., quotes or surrounding \fbox{}). When used together with the shortvrb package it allows the definition of short verbatim characters which use this package’s variant instead of the normal \verb.

In addition, it is possible to collect an argument verbatim to either typeset or write it into a file.

The \Verbdef command defines verbatim text to a macro which can later be used to write the verbatim text to a file.
