## tcolorbox – Coloured boxes, for LaTeX examples and theorems, etc

This package provides an environment for coloured and framed text boxes with a heading line. Optionally, such a box may be split in an upper and a lower part; thus the package may be used for the setting of examples where one part of the box displays the source code and the other part shows the output. Another common use case is the setting of theorems. The package supports saving and reuse of source code and text parts.

The package depends on the pgf, verbatim, environ, and etoolbox packages.
