Version number: 1.7
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Attach arbitrary files to a PDF document

Announcement text:
Starting with PDF 1.3 (Adobe Acrobat 4.0), PDF files can contain file 
attachments -- arbitrary files that a reader can extract, just like 
attachments to an e-mail message.  The attachfile package brings this 
functionality to pdfLaTeX and LuaLaTeX and provides some additional 
features not available in Acrobat, such as the ability to use arbitrary 
LaTeX code for the file icon -- including things like \includegraphics, 
tabular, and math.  Settings can be made either globally or on a 
per-attachment basis.  attachfile makes it easy to attach files and 
customize their appearance in the enclosing document.

Version 1.7 is more robust to redefinitions of \@arabic, such as those 
made by the babel package.  Thanks to Jonas Olson for reporting the 
problem and Heiko Oberdiek for proposing the solution.
