Date: April 16, 2011 3:37:59 PM CEST

On Fri, 15 Apr 2011 Jean-Côme Charpentier submitted an update to the
xlop
package.
Summary description: Xtra Large OPerations (process and display operations)
License type: lppl
Announcement text:

Xlop (eXtra Large OPeration) will typeset arithmetic operation either in-line or as in school (using French school conventions). So for example, \opadd{2}{3} can give either $2+3=5$ or something similar to: \begin{tabular}{r} 2\\ +3\\ \hline 5\end{tabular}. This release fix two bugs: * displayed multiplcation * macro \opexport

This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/generic/xlop/ . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/xlop (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear).

## xlop – Calculates and displays arithmetic operations

Xlop (eXtra Large OPeration) will typeset arithmetic problems
either in-line or “as in school” (using French
school conventions). So for example, `\opadd{2}{3}` can
give either `$2+3=5$` or something similar to:
`\begin{tabular}{r} 2\\ +3\\ \hline 5\end{tabular}`.

Furthermore, numbers may be very large, e.g 200 figures (with a very long compilation time). Many other features allow to deal with numbers (tests, display, some high level operations, etc.)
