The package \exsol{} provides macros to allow
embedding exercises and solutions in the LaTeX source of an
instructional text (e.g., a book or a course text) while generating
the following separate documents:
  - your original text that only contains the exercises, and
  - a solution book that only contains the solutions to the
    exercises (a package option exists to also copy the exercises
    themselves to the solution book).

The former is generated when running LaTeX on your document. This
run writes the solutions to a secondary file that can be included
into a simple document harness, such that when running LaTeX on
the latter, you can generate a nice solution book.

The code of the exsol package was taken almost literally from
fancyvrb [http://www.ctan.org/pkg/fancyvrb]. 
Therefore, all credits go to the authors/maintainers of fancyvrb.

If you think	
  - there's an error in this package,
  - there's a feature missing in this package,
please, don't hesitate to contact the author through e-mail
(walter.daems@uantwerpen.be).

ex­sol – Ex­er­cises and so­lu­tions from the same source, into a book

The pack­ageThe ex­sol pack­age pro­vides macros to al­low for em­bed­ding ex­er­cises and so­lu­tions in the LaTeX source of an in­struc­tional text (e.g., a book or a course text) while gen­er­at­ing the fol­low­ing sep­a­rate doc­u­ments:

  • – your orig­i­nal text that only con­tains the ex­er­cises, and
  • – a so­lu­tion book that con­tains only the so­lu­tions to the ex­er­cises (op­tion­ally, the ex­er­cises them­selves are also copied to the so­lu­tion book).
The ex­er­cise data are gen­er­ated when run­ning LaTeX on your doc­u­ment; the first run also writes the so­lu­tions to a sec­ondary file that may be in­cluded in a sim­ple doc­u­ment har­ness, may be pro­cessed by LaTeX, to gen­er­ate a nice so­lu­tion book.

The code of the pack­age was de­rived (in large part) from fan­cyvrb.
