Date: Au­gust 11, 2011 8:41:42 PM CEST
On 11 Aug 2011 Martin Schar­rer sub­mit­ted the re­al­box pack­age. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Pro­vides vari­ants of com­mon ``box''-macros which reads their con­tent as real box and not as macro ar­gu­ment. Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
This LaTeX pack­age uses the au­thors other pack­age 'col­lect­box' to de­fine vari­ants of com­mon box re­lated macros which read the con­tent as real box and not as macro ar­gu­ment. This en­ables the use of ver­ba­tim or other spe­cial ma­te­rial as part of this con­tent. The pro­vided macros sim­ply have the same names as the orig­i­nal ver­sions but start with an up­per-case let­ter in­stead. The "long-form" macros, like \Make­box, can also be used as en­vi­ron­ments, but not the "short-form" macros, like \Mbox. How­ever, nor­mally the long form uses the short form any­way when no op­tional ar­gu­ments are used.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/re­al­boxes . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/re­al­boxes (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear).

re­al­boxes – Vari­ants of com­mon box-com­mands that read their con­tent as real box and not as macro ar­gu­ment

The pack­age uses the au­thor's pack­age col­lect­box to de­fine vari­ants of com­mon box re­lated macros which read the con­tent as real box and not as macro ar­gu­ment. This en­ables the use of ver­ba­tim or other spe­cial ma­te­rial as part of this con­tent.

The pro­vided macros have the same names as the orig­i­nal ver­sions but start with an up­per-case let­ter in­stead. The "long-form" macros, like \Make­box, can also be used as en­vi­ron­ments, but not the "short-form" macros, like \Mbox. How­ever, nor­mally the long form uses the short form any­way when no op­tional ar­gu­ments are used.
