New CTAN package: realboxes

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). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html . Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

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.
