etextools provides many (purely expandable) tools for LaTeX:
- Extensive list management (csv lists, lists of single tokens/characters, etoolbox lists):
   . purely expandable loops (csvloop, forcsvloop etc.)
   . conversion (csvtolist etc.))
   . addition/deletion (csvadd, listdel etc.)
- Expansion and groups control : \expandnext, \ExpandAfterCmds, \AfterGroup...
- Tests on tokens, characters and control sequences (\iffirstchar, \ifiscs, \ifdefcount, \@ifchar...)
- Tests on strings (\ifstrnum, \ifuppercase, \DeclareStringFilter...)
- Purely expandable macros with options (\FE@testopt, \FE@ifstar) or modifiers (\FE@modifiers)
- Some purely expandable numerics (\interval, \locinterplin)

The pack­age pro­vides many (purely ex­pand­able) tools for LaTeX:

  • Ex­ten­sive list man­age­ment (csv lists, lists of sin­gle to­kens/char­ac­ters, etool­box lists);
  • purely ex­pand­able loops (csvloop, forcsvloop, etc.);
  • con­ver­sion (csv­tolist, etc.));
  • ad­di­tion/dele­tion (csvadd, list­del, etc.);
  • Ex­pan­sion and group con­trol: \ex­pand­next, \Ex­pandAfterCmds, \AfterGroup…;
  • Tests on to­kens, char­ac­ters and con­trol se­quences (\if­firstchar, \ifiscs, \ifde­f­count, \@ifchar…);
  • Tests on strings (\if­str­num, \ifup­per­case, \De­clareStringFil­ter…);
  • Purely ex­pand­able macros with op­tions (\FE@testopt, \FE@if­s­tar) or mod­i­fiers (\FE@mod­i­fiers);
  • Some purely ex­pand­able nu­mer­ics (\in­ter­val, \locin­ter­plin).

The pack­age is de­pen­dent on the etex and the etool­box pack­ages.
