README for the `catcodes' bundle (C) Uwe Lueck 2015/11/14 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. The documentation for the three package files is contained in the file `catcodes.pdf'. REQUIRED PACKAGES: plainpkg, stacklet RELATED PACKAGES: catoptions, pcatcode (amsrefs), texapi, csquotes KEYWORDs: macro programming, category codes, private letters, active characters, double quotes The package files `actcodes.sty', `catchdq.sty', and `stacklet.sty', together with the documentation files `catcodes.pdf' and `catcodes.tex', can be redistributed and/or modified under the terms of the LaTeX Project Public License; either version 1.3c of the License, or any later version, see http://www.latex-project.org/lppl.txt There is NO WARRANTY, actually all of this still is a little experimental. The `catcodes' bundle is author-maintained in the sense of the license. The latest public version of the bundle is available at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/generic/catcodes/ A TDS version of the package is available as http://mirror.ctan.org/install/macros/generic/catcodes.tds.zip The file `catcodes.RLS' summarizes bundle releases. With the `typeoutfileinfo' package, the command typeoutfileinfo catcodes.RLS tells which release is installed on your system. Similar packages are `ltxfileinfo' by Wybo Dekker and `latexfileversion' by Harald Harders. Please report bugs, problems, and suggestions via http://www.contact-ednotes.sty.de.vu

catcodes – Generic handling of TeX category codes
The bundle deals with category code switching; the packages of the bundle should work with any TeX 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.
