Summary description: Extended filecontents and filecontents*

Announcement text:

LaTeX2e's filecontents and filecontents* environments enable a LaTeX
source file to generate external files as it's run through latex.
However, there are two limitations of these environments: They refuse
to overwrite existing files; and, they can be used only before the
\documentclass declaration.  The filecontents package removes these
limitations, making it possible to overwrite existing files and to use
filecontents/filecontents* anywhere.

Version 1.4 of filecontents updates the definitions of tab and form
feed for compatibility with the 2018-04-01 LaTeX release.  Thanks to
David Carlisle for the code update.
