Pro­vide more writ­ing streams in

The morewrites pack­age should be used when en­coun­ter­ing the No room for a new \write er­ror. This is done by re­defin­ing a few prim­i­tives re­lated to out­put.

This pack­age uses the l3kernel bun­dle.

This is work in progress, all sug­ges­tions/com­ments/bug re­ports are wel­come! See https://github.com/ble­floch/la­tex-morewrites

morewrites – Al­ways room for a new write stream

The pack­age aims to solve the er­ror “No room for a new \write”, which oc­curs when the user, or when the user’s pack­ages have ‘al­lo­cated too many streams’ us­ing \newwrite ( has a fixed max­i­mum num­ber – 16 – such streams built-in to its code). The pack­age hooks into prim­i­tive com­mands as­so­ci­ated with writ­ing to files; it should be loaded near the be­gin­ning of the se­quence of load­ing pack­ages for a doc­u­ment.

The pack­age uses the l3k­er­nel bun­dle.
