On Sun, 27 Feb 2011 Martin Scharrer submitted an update to the collcell package. Summary description: Update to v0.5: Some bug fixes and removed limitations License type: lppl Announcement text:
This updated fixes some limitations of the previous version. The following uses are now supported: * Empty cells before \\ * Missing \\ * Use inside \multicolumn * Use of # inside collected cells (except inside \multicolumn which doesn't support this by itself) * Use around or inside other >{} <{} material * Cascaded use of \collectcell * The argument of \collectcell can now consist of multiple tokens * Material inside <{} before \endcollectcell is now also collected if it is part of the last column * An almost-verbatim version of \verb is provided (uses the version of the 'tabularx' package) * supports 'tabular', 'tabularx', 'array' as well as 'tabularx' in the LaTeX or TeX syntaxes as well as in \csname ... \endcsname (except 'tabularx' which doesn't support this by itself). And some more smaller features. See the manual for details. The code has been improved and more documentation has been added.

## collcell – Collect contents of a tabular cell as argument to a macro

The package provides macros that collect the content of a tabular cell, and offer them as an argument to a macro. Special care is taken to remove all aligning macros inserted by tabular from the cell content. The macros also work in the last column of a table, but do not support verbatim material inside the cells.
