Date: April 14, 2017 9:26:53 AM CEST
Bruno Le Floch submitted an update to the morewrites package. Version: 2017-04-10 License: lppl1.3c Summary description: Always room for a new write stream Announcement text:
This is a rewrite of the morewrites package. - Read streams are also dealt with (mostly: if more than 15 are open at the same time morewrites will fail). - The auxiliary file name is now customizable to avoid conflict with Maple worksheets. - The number of streams used for morewrites' internal purposes is customizable. - Some updates were needed due to expl3 changes and to LuaTeX changes.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at http://ctan.org/pkg/morewrites The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/morewrites/

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 ( has a fixed maximum number – 16 – such streams built-in to its code). The package hooks into 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.
