* LaTeX xpunctuate.dtx for usage instructions and documentation.

This is the first public release of the "xpunctuate" package; it defines 
commands for typesetting, e.g., abbreviations where the trailing period may 
clash with a sentence terminator.  More precisely it avoids the natural 
problem of definitions such as \def\etc{\emph{etc}.}, which may then cause
double periods if used at the end of sentences, such as ... cats, dogs \etc. 
It also deals with optional commas, which again may be rendered unnecessary by
the presence of a following sentence terminator. 

Change history: v1.0 first official release.

xpunc­tu­ate – Pro­cess trail­ing punc­tu­a­tion which may be re­dun­dant

The pack­age pro­vides com­mands that en­able the user (or pack­age writer) to in­sert punc­tu­a­tion af­ter the macro. The method is sim­i­lar to that of xs­pace, but goes fur­ther.

The pack­age pro­vides the com­mands \xpe­riod, \xcomma and \xpe­ri­od­comma, which fol­low a sim­i­lar pro­ce­dure to that of \xs­pace, and in­sert punc­tu­a­tion if and only if it is nec­es­sary.
