## ifetex – Provides \ifetex switch

The package provides the switch \ifetex which indicates whether e- is available or not.

The package can be loaded as package using \usepackage{ifetex} or in plain using \input ifetex. In either case it aborts silently if the \ifetex macro is already defined.

The package’s test is whether \version is defined as a primitive; if it is, the package assumes e- features are available.

Please note, that ifetex is now part of iftex.
