New on CTAN: catcodes

On Thu, 20 Sep 2012 Uwe Lück submitted the catcodes package. Summary description: generic handling of category codes (private letters, active characters) License type: lppl Announcement text:
The `catcodes' bundle deals with category code switching. The contained packages should work with LaTeX as well as without (based on the `plainpkg' package). The important cases of category codes are (a) "private letters" for internal package commands and (b) active characters. `stacklet.sty' deals with (a), `actcodes.sty' with (b). There also is (c) `catchdq.sty', an application of (b), for automatic insertion of typographical double quotes when the user only enters ASCII double quotes. What is "typographical" differs between languages, the new `langcode' package completes `catchdq''s functionality in this respect. See README for documentation and similar (more comprehensive) packages. Some macros and code are moving here from the `morehype' and `nicetext' bundles, attempting to improve all of them. It may take some weeks to upload my most recent versions of the latter bundles to render the public versions compatible which each other again.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/generic/catcodes . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/catcodes (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

catcodes – Generic handling of category codes

The bundle deals with category code switching; the packages of the bundle should work with any format (with the support of the plainpkg package).

The bundle provides:

  • stacklet.sty, which supports stacks that control the use of different catcodes;
  • actcodes.sty, which deals with active characters; and
  • catchdq.sty, which provides a simple quotation character control mechanism.
