      \listfiles Alignment with Date and Version Columns
                  (C) Uwe Lueck 2012/10/30

While `longnamefilelist.sty' improves LaTeX's \listfiles with 
respect to long base filenames only, the present `nicefilelist.sty' 
can keep separate columns for 
(i) date (ii) version, and (iii) "caption" 
(don't write caption text in date column), 
their alignment not being disturbed by short filename extensions 
such as `.fd'. This is achieved basing on the `monofill' package.

v0.7 offers a package option `[wrap]' for automatic word wrapping 
within the caption column, using the `hardwrap' package, so 
filenames and captions can be quite long without disturbing the 

As opposed to the `dateiliste' package, this is about the plain 
text output in the `.log' file or, with `myfilist', as a stand-
alone plain text file.

The package `latexfileinfo-pkgs'


describes `nicefilelist' in a more general context. A file 
`nicefilelist.RLS' provides release information accessible by 
packages described there.

nice­filelist – Pro­vide \list­files align­ment

The pack­age ex­tends long­name­filelist, keep­ing sep­a­rate columns for date, ver­sion and “cap­tion” (the cap­tion now sep­a­rately listed). Align­ment is not dis­turbed by short file name ex­ten­sions, such as “.fd”.

The pack­age is not com­pat­i­ble with long­name­filelist: users need to re-read the doc­u­men­ta­tion.
