CTAN update: lt3rawobjects

Paolo De Donato submitted an update to the lt3rawobjects package. Version: 2.2 2022-12-09 License: gpl3+ Summary description: Objects and proxies in LaTeX3 Announcement text:
New features have been added to this "minor" update: - `macro` elements: a macro is just any untyped control sequence inside an object, you can take its address (aka the control sequence name) with the `\object_macro_adr` function and expand/execute it with `\object_macro_call.`. Since macros are generic control sequences, it is up to the user to properly create them (with `\def`, `\cs_new:Npn`, `\newcommand` or any other suitable mechanism); - _Embedded objects_: You can put objects inside other objects in various ways, in this release you can do that with embedded objects too. The main advantage is that you can put an embedded object declaration inside the proxy with `\proxy_put_embedded` so that every object created by that proxy will have its own instance of embedded object automatically created. You can retrieve the addresses of embedded objects with the `\object_embedded_adr` function.

lt3rawobjects – Objects and proxies in 3

This package introduces a new mechanism to create objects like the well known C structures. The functions exported by this package are quite low level, and many important mechanisms like member protection and name resolution aren’t already defined and should be introduced by intermediate packages.
