# CTAN package update: environ

Date: June 18, 2008 9:37:40 AM CEST
The package below has been updated. Thanks, Jim Hefferon Saint Michael's College ........................................................................ The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: environ Author's name: Will Robertson Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/environ Summary description: A new syntax for defining environments License type: lppl Announcement text:
This is a new version of the environ package, which provides a \long version of amsmath's \collect at body command; more usefully for authors, it provides a convenient LaTeX wrapper for defining environments that read their entire body. v0.2 completely replaces the functionality from v0.1, with a new macro (with a new name) for defining environments that is significantly improved over the analogous command in previous version. (Backwards compatibility is preserved, for now.)

## environ – A new interface for environments in LaTeX

The package provides the \collect@body command (as in amsmath), as well as a \long version \Collect@Body, for collecting the body text of an environment.

These commands are used to define a new author interface to creating new environments. For example, \NewEnviron{test}, wraps the entire environment body in square brackets, doing the right thing in ignoring leading and trailing spaces.
