# boites

boites is a package to typeset boxes that may break across pages.

(c) 1998-1999 Vincent Zoonekynd <zoonek@math.jussieu.fr>

## Description

These environments allow page breaks inside framed boxes. They include a few examples (shaded box, box with a wavy line on its side, etc.)

See also the framed package.

## Usage

In the preamble:

\usepackage{boites,boites_examples,graphicx}

Before using the various environments:

\bkcounttrue: the lines will be numbered

\bkcountfalse: the lines will not be numbered

Boxed text with a title:

\begin{boiteepaisseavecuntitre}
...
\end{boiteepaisseavecuntitre}

Text with a double vertical line on the left and a number (17, in this example):

\begin{boitenumeroteeavecunedoublebarre}{17}
...
\end{boitenumeroteeavecunedoublebarre}

Text with a wavy line on the left:

\begin{boiteavecunelignequiondulesurlecote}
...
\end{boiteavecunelignequiondulesurlecote}

\begin{boitecoloriee}
...
\end{boitecoloriee}

If you wish other kinds of boxes, have a look at boites_examples.sty and feel free to adapt the macros.
