The morewrites package silently hooks into the TeX primitives
responsible for writing to files to lift the restriction on
the number of files open at the same time (16). Load the package
with "\usepackage{morewrites}" as early as possible.

This package uses the l3kernel bundle.

This is work in progress, all suggestions/comments/bug reports are welcome!

morewrites – Al­ways room for a new write stream

The pack­age aims to solve the er­ror “No room for a new \write”, which oc­curs when the user, or when the user’s pack­ages have ’al­lo­cated too many streams us­ing \newwrite (TeX has a fixed max­i­mum num­ber – 16 – such streams built-in to its code). The pack­age hooks into TeX prim­i­tive com­mands as­so­ci­ated with writ­ing to files; it should be loaded near the be­gin­ning of the se­quence of load­ing pack­ages for a doc­u­ment.

The pack­age uses the l3k­er­nel bun­dle.
