fetchcls – Fetch the current class name

With standard you are able to check for the class in use invoking the kernel command \@ifclassloaded. However, doing so you cannot get the explicit class name, unless you want to loop over every possible class name until \@ifclassloaded returns true — don't do that!

With the help of the present package you can obtain the name of the current class with significantly less effort. Just load the package as usual: \usepackage{fetchcls}; then, the control sequence \classname will hold the name you were looking for.
