etool­box – e- tools for

The pack­age is a tool­box of pro­gram­ming fa­cil­i­ties geared pri­mar­ily to­wards class and pack­age au­thors. It pro­vides fron­tends to some of the new prim­i­tives pro­vided by e- as well as some generic tools which are not strictly re­lated to e- but match the pro­file of this pack­age. Note that the ini­tial ver­sions of this pack­age were re­leased un­der the name ela­tex.

The pack­age pro­vides func­tions that seem to of­fer al­ter­na­tive ways of im­ple­ment­ing some ker­nel com­mands; nev­er­the­less, the pack­age will not mod­ify any part of the ker­nel.
