Package: logbox - e-TeX showbox facilities (FC)
-------------------------------------------------------------
logbox provides facilities to display the contents of boxes in
the log file or print them with their dimensions in the final
document.

For "exploration purpose".

The TeX primitive \showbox stops the compilation.
Looking at the box contents requires to set the \showboxbreadth
and \showboxdepth parameters accordingly.

logbox.sty sets those parameters, the \interactionmode is temporarily
set so that the compilation don't stop and the box description can
finally be explored in the .log file.

As a tracing command, \logbox also works in harmony with the tracing
parameter: \tracingoutput.


Commands provided:

\logbox          : TeX \showbox without stop in the compilation
                                + \showboxbreadth >=  10
                                + \showboxdepth   >=  10

\dimbox          : typeset the type (hbox, vbox or void) of the box
                   and its dimensions in the document.

\viewbox         : \dimbox + \logbox
\viewbox*        : \dimbox + \logbox + inserts the box in the document

\Viewbox         : same as \viewbox but the argument is the box contents
                   rather than the box register.

\ShowGroups      : e-TeX \showgroups without stop in the compilation.

\ShowLists       : e-TeX \showlists without stop in the compilation.
