Summary description: replacing \@ifnextchar so `\\ [' prints `[' in new line etc.
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
`ifnextok' deals with the behavior of LaTeX's internal 
`\@ifnextchar' to skip blank spaces. This sometimes has surprising 
or for some users really unwanted effects, especially with 
brackets following `\\' where the user does not intend to specify 
an optional argument, rather wants that brackets are printed.
The package offers commands and options for modifying this 
behavior, maybe limited to certain parts of the document source.
