CTAN Update: bundledoc

On Mon, 2 May 2011 Scott Pakin submitted an update to the bundledoc package. Summary description: Bundle together all the files needed to build a LaTeX document. License type: lppl Announcement text:
bundledoc is a post-processor for the snapshot package that bundles together all the classes, package's, and files needed to build a given LaTeX document. It reads the .dep file that snapshot produces, finds each of the files mentioned therein, and archives them into a single .tar.gz (or .zip, or whatever) file, suitable for moving across systems, transmitting to a colleague, etc. As an added bonus, this distribution includes a small script called arlatex. arlatex is a LaTeX-specific archiving program that combines a bunch of files into a single .tex file. When the .tex file is run through latex, all of the original files are recreated and the LaTeX document is built. bundledoc can be easily configured to use arlatex as its archiver in place of tar, zip, etc. Version 3.1 includes a --listdeps option that instructs bundledoc to list all of the document's dependencies, optionally without even producing an archive. (This feature was proposed by Tobias Mueller.)

More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/bundledoc (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

bundledoc – Bundle together all the files needed to build a document

The bundledoc package is a post-processor for the snapshot package that bundles together all the classes, packages and files needed to build a given document. It reads the .dep file that snapshot produces, finds each of the files mentioned therein, and archives them into a single .tar.gz (or .zip, or whatever) file, suitable for moving across systems, transmitting to a colleague, etc.

A script, arlatex, provides an alternative “archiving” mechanism, creating a single file that contains all of the ancillary files of a document, together with the document itself, using the filecontents* environment.
