A new package has been installed on tug.ctan.org and it should make its
way to your favorite mirror in the next day or two.

Thanks,

Summary description: Manage the libraries of exercises. Usefull for teachers.

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
This package is useful for the teachers of mathematics
who often work with large libraries of exercises of mathematics.

Assume that you have an input file
that specifies 16 exercises.

\begin{exercise}\label{ex:1}
This is the first exercise.
\end{exercise}
%
\begin{exercise}\label{ex:2}
...

On Tuesday, for e.g., you want to create a student test
that contains the first  8 exercises.
However, on Wednesday, you want to create another test
that contains the last 8 exercises.
You may think of a solution like this

\get{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8}        % on Tuesday
\get{9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16} % on Wednesday

This package helps you.
