longtable – Allow tables to flow over page boundaries

Longtable al­lows you to write ta­bles that con­tinue to the next page. You can write cap­tions within the ta­ble (typ­i­cally at the start of the ta­ble), and head­ers and trail­ers for pages of ta­ble. Longtable ar­ranges that the columns on suc­ces­sive pages have the same widths. This last con­trasts with the su­per­fi­cially sim­i­lar su­pertab­u­lar pack­age.

Longtable (un­like su­pertab­u­lar) mod­i­fies the out­put rou­tine, and con­se­quently won't work in a mul­ti­col­umn en­vi­ron­ment (or in other cir­cum­stances where the out­put rou­tine has been crit­i­cally al­tered); it also fails in twocol­umn pages.

This pack­age is part of the tools bun­dle in the LaTeX re­quired dis­tri­bu­tion.
