Parshape macros for LaTeX2e

Provides a front-end to the standard TeX \parshape macro. Allows
length registers to be reused, and \parshape commands to be generated
using loops and other TeX and LaTeX constructs.

Example usage:


 \parshapelenout{\len} \parshapelenout{15em}
 \parshapelenout{\len} \parshapelenout{9em}
 \parshapelenout{0em} \parshapelenout{\len}
\texttt{The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.}

Produces (assuming a tt font with 1em per character):

 The quick brown
       fox jumps
over the
lazy dog

Commands are also available to process arrays of lengths in various
different ways; see PDF documentation for details.

rjl­par­shap – Sup­port for use of \par­shape in

The pack­age pro­vides macros and en­vi­ron­ments that re­lieve the pro­gram­mer of some of the dif­fi­cul­ties of us­ing \par­shape in macros. It does not ac­tu­ally cal­cu­late shapes in the way that the shapepar pack­age does.
