Summary description: Typeset matrices and arrays with spaces and
semicolons as delimiters.

Announcement text:

The purpose of this package is to decrease the number of keystrokes
needed to typeset small amounts of aligned material (matrices, arrays,
etc.).  It provides a facility for typing alignment environments and
macros with spaces as the alignment delimiter and semicolons (by
default) as the end-of-row indicator.  For instance, typeset a matrix
using \spalignmat{1 12 -3; 24 -2 2; 0 0 1}, or a vector using
\spalignvector{22 \frac{1}{2} -14}.

This package also contains utility macros for typesetting augmented
matrices, vectors, arrays, systems of equations, and more, and is
easily extendable to other situations that use alignments.

People who have to typeset a large number of matrices (like linear
algebra teachers) should find this package to be a real time saver.
