INSTALLATION
Run latex inlinedef.ins' and copy the inlinedef.sty file into a
path searched by LaTeX.

DESCRIPTION
This package provides a macro \Inline that precedes a \def or
\gdef.  Within the definition text of an inlined definition,
keywords such as \Expand may be used to selectively inline certain
expansions at definition-time.  This eases the process of
redefining macros in terms of the original definition, as well
as definitions in which the token that must be expanded is deep
within, where \expandafter would be difficult and \edef is not
suitable.  Another application is as an easier version of
\aftergroup, by defining a macro in terms of expanded local
variables, then ending the group with \expandafter\endgroup\macro
