On Mon, 24 Apr 2006 Steven B. Segletes submitted the new package


to CTAN.

Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/boxhandler
Summary description: Flexible Captioning and Deferred Box/List Printing
License type: lppl

Announcement text:
This package provides a powerful, yet simple, interface for managing
and manipulating the captions of boxed objects (e.g., tables and
figures).  In addition to providing wide flexibility in the
presentation style of the captions, this package, when used in
combination with conditionally compiled LaTeX source codes, provides
the ability to defer or preempt the presentation of figures, tables,
and their associated lists.  In this way, one can, for example, by
changing a single line of source code in the .tex file, change the
output of LaTeX from a technical report with tables and figures
interspersed in the text, to a journal-manuscript submission, with
figures collected at the end of document, as well as lof and lot
deferred or preempted.

Run `boxhandler.ins' through LaTeX to produce boxhandler.sty from boxhandler.dtx.

Run `boxhandler.dtx' through LaTeX to produce the documentation.

This program can be redistributed and/or modified, with attribution.

Thanks for the upload.
