Summary description: New package to store multiple used content only once
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 

This package provides "store boxes" which have the same user interface like 
normal LaTeX "save boxes", but only store the content once in the output file 
even if it is used several times.

At the moment only native PDF output is supported (i.e. pdflatex and lualatex).

If the stored content is not used in the document after all it is not written to 
the PDF (at least the pdftex manual says so).

For any other TeX and output format the package simply falls back to use the 
normal savebox equivalents.


This package is located at
.  More information is at
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to 
appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group .  
Please join a users group; see .


Thanks for the upload.
