eq­par­box – Create equal-widthed par­boxes

users some­times need to en­sure that two or more blocks of text oc­cupy the same amount of hor­i­zon­tal space on the page. To that end, the eq­par­box pack­age de­fines a new com­mand, \eq­par­box, which works just like \par­box, ex­cept that in­stead of spec­i­fy­ing a width, one spec­i­fies a tag. All eq­par­boxes with the same tag—re­gard­less of where they are in the doc­u­ment—will stretch to fit the widest eq­par­box with that tag. This sim­ple, equal-width mech­a­nism can be used for a va­ri­ety of align­ment pur­poses, as is ev­i­denced by the ex­am­ples in eq­par­box's doc­u­men­ta­tion. Var­i­ous deriva­tives of \eq­par­box are also pro­vided.
