```Christian Hupfer submitted the

assoccnt

package.

Version number: 0.2

Summary description: Advancing many counters simultaneously

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Announcement of original upload (v. 0.1):

This package provides some commands to handle associated
counters that will be stepped if a driver counter (say page
or chapter) is increased by \stepcounter.  The driven counters
can be given as a CSV list to the `\DeclareAssociatedCounters´
command and will be increased, even if the driver counter is
reset in the meantime.

\RemoveAssociatedCounters will remove the specified counters
from the update list.

See the comments in the style file and the
assoccnt_example.tex/assoccnt_example.pdf for usage and
further explanation.

This package can be used in conjunction with `totcount` to
provide real total values of a counter, as long as no direct
manipulation to an associated counter is done via

Announcement of v. 0.2:

A better error handling has been introduced

Multiple specification of an associated counter is prevented

The macro \IfIsAssociatedCounter is introduced

Documentation added in assoccnt.pdf
