CTAN up­date: eq­par­box

Scott Pakin sub­mit­ted an up­date to the eq­par­box pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 4.1 Li­cense type: lp­pl1.3c Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Create equal-widthed par­boxes An­nounce­ment text:
LaTeX users some­times need to en­sure that two or more blocks of text oc­cupy the same hor­i­zon­tal space on the page. To that end, the eq­par­box pack­age de­fines \eq­par­box, \eq­make­box, \eqframe­box, and \eqsave­box macros and an eqmini­page en­vi­ron­ment. Th­ese work, re­spec­tively, just like the \par­box, \make­box, \frame­box, and \save­box macros and the mini­page en­vi­ron­ment, ex­cept that in­stead of spec­i­fy­ing a width, one spec­i­fies a tag. All boxes with the same tag -- re­gard­less of where they are in the doc­u­ment -- will stretch to fit the widest box that uses that tag. This sim­ple, equal-width mech­a­nism can be used for a va­ri­ety of align­ment pur­poses, as is ev­i­denced by the ex­am­ples in eq­par­box's doc­u­men­ta­tion. Ver­sion 4.1 of eq­par­box cor­rects a few mi­nor prob­lems with the code and doc­u­men­ta­tion.

eq­par­box – Create equal-widthed par­boxes

users some­times need to en­sure that two or more blocks of text oc­cupy the same amount of hor­i­zon­tal space on the page. To that end, the eq­par­box pack­age de­fines a new com­mand, \eq­par­box, which works just like \par­box, ex­cept that in­stead of spec­i­fy­ing a width, one spec­i­fies a tag. All eq­par­boxes with the same tag—re­gard­less of where they are in the doc­u­ment—will stretch to fit the widest eq­par­box with that tag. This sim­ple, equal-width mech­a­nism can be used for a va­ri­ety of align­ment pur­poses, as is ev­i­denced by the ex­am­ples in eq­par­box's doc­u­men­ta­tion. Var­i­ous deriva­tives of \eq­par­box are also pro­vided.
