> Author's name: Florent CHERVET
> Author's email: florent.chervet at
> Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/FC/catchfilebetweentags
> Summary description: Catch (into a macro) a portion of a file delimited by two docstrip tags
> License type: lppl
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:

> If you know the package catchfile, upon which catchfilebetweentags is
> written, you've understood yet the purpose of this package.
> The macro \catchfilebetweentags acts like \catchfile but extract a
> portion of the file instead of the complete file. The extracted
> portion can be delimited by strings or by docstrip tags :
>        %<*tag> ....   ....  %</tag>
> Comments inside the portion can be ignored or catched.
> ExecuteMetaData is a shortcut to execute immediately the 
> extracted portion.
