Summary description: Bundle together all the files needed to build a LaTeX document.
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
bundledoc is a post-processor for the snapshot package that
bundles together all the classes, packages, and files needed
to build a given LaTeX document.  It reads the .dep file
that snapshot produces, finds each of the files mentioned
therein, and archives them into a single .tar.gz (or .zip,
or whatever) file, suitable for moving across systems,
transmitting to a colleague, etc.

As an added bonus, this distribution includes a small script
called arlatex.  arlatex is a LaTeX-specific archiving
program that combines a bunch of files into a single .tex
file.  When the .tex file is run through latex, all of the
original files are recreated and the LaTeX document is
built.  bundledoc can be easily configured to use arlatex as
its archiver in place of tar, zip, etc.

Version 3.1 includes a --listdeps option that instructs
bundledoc to list all of the document's dependencies,
optionally without even producing an archive.  (This feature
was proposed by Tobias Mueller.)
