  The float package

This package improves the interface for defining floating objects such
as figures and tables in LaTeX.  It adds the notion of a `float style'
that governs appearance of floats.  New kinds of floats may be defined
using a \newfloat command analogous to \newtheorem.  This style option
also incorporates the functionality of David Carlisle's style option
`here', giving floating environments a [H] option which means `PUT IT
HERE' (as opposed to the standard [h] option which means `You may put
it here if you like').

Run `float.ins' through LaTeX to produce float.sty from float.dtx.
Run `float.dtx' through LaTeX to produce the documentation.

float – Im­proved in­ter­face for float­ing ob­jects

Im­proves the in­ter­face for defin­ing float­ing ob­jects such as fig­ures and ta­bles. In­tro­duces the boxed float, the ruled float and the plain­top float. You can de­fine your own floats and im­prove the be­haviour of the old ones.

The pack­age also pro­vides the H float mod­i­fier op­tion of the ob­so­lete here pack­age. You can se­lect this as au­to­matic de­fault with \float­place­ment{fig­ure}{H}.
