The LaTeX package 'gobble' includes several gobble macros not
included in the LaTeX kernel. These macros remove a number of 
arguments after them; a feature regulary used inside other
macros. This includes gobble macros for optional arguments.

The LaTeX package 'gobble-user' provides these macros to the
user level, i.e. using names without '@', so that these can be
used without \makeatletter and \makeatother.

The same macros are provided inside .tex files for use with 
plain-TeX or other TeX formats.  However, the gobble macros
for optional macros require \@ifnextchar to be defined.

gob­ble – More gob­ble macros for Plain and

The pack­age gob­ble in­cludes sev­eral gob­ble macros not in­cluded in the ker­nel. Th­ese macros re­move a num­ber of ar­gu­ments af­ter them, a fea­ture reg­u­lary used in­side other macros. This in­cludes gob­ble macros for op­tional ar­gu­ments.

The pack­age gob­ble-user pro­vides these macros at the user level, i.e. us­ing names with­out @ so that these can be used with­out \makeatlet­ter and \makeatother.

The same macros are pro­vided in­side .tex files for use with plain- or other for­mats. How­ever, the gob­ble macros for op­tional macros re­quire \@ifnextchar to be de­fined.
