== README for the `fileinfo' bundle ==
This bundle has packages `readprov.sty' and `myfilist.sty'.
renders \GetFileInfo from LaTeX's `doc.sty' (without the
latter being required), as well as new robust (expandable)
variants of it, usable with files that are not really
loaded (they are quit when their file info is found,
cf. the `zwgetfdate' package). So, e.g., you can describe
packages that are incompatible with each other or with
packages that your document uses. You even can report about
various class files.
Such packages then also appear with LaTeX's \listfiles.

makes this "bug" a feature. In a "TeX script," you can

output into a plain text file with their dates, version
ids, and one-line descriptions, formatted in the way
\listfiles does it after a LaTeX run. This way you can get
an overview of, e.g., some package bundle ...
The two packages are described in more detail in `readprov.pdf'
and `myfilist.pdf'. These documentation files also serve to
demonstrate some .txt->.tex functionality of the `nicetext'
Both packages evaluate the \Provides... commands that should
identify a LaTeX file. They are described in the context of
other packages evaluating the \Provides... entries by the
`info' package `latexfileinfo-pkgs',
The file `fileinfo.RLS', when installed just like
`myfilist.sty' and `readprov.sty' (in the `tex' tree of a TDS),
provides a summary of the currently installed release of the
`fileinfo' bundle, accessible as LaTeX file info by all of

The bundle provides two packages,
myfilist. The readprov
package provides a means of reading file information without

readprov and controls what \listfiles will
