> Author's name: Steven B. Segletes
> Package version: 3.0
> Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/verbatimbox/
> Summary description: Routines to put verbatim text in a box, used when

> License type: lppl
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> The verbatimbox package has undergone a major overhaul.
> The package allows verbatim material to be placed into LATEX boxes,
> for later recall. This function is useful in several situations, primarily in places
> where the verbatim environment is otherwise inaccessible (for example, in the
> midst of a tabular environment). It is also useful if a given verbatim text needs
> to be recalled multiple times within a document.
> The introduction of the new myverbbox environment allows the user to
> place verbatim content in a box for which he chooses the name, thus
> allowing more than one verbatimbox to be in play at a time.
> While there is application for its use within the verbatimbox
> application, this package also offers an independent command
> (\addvbuffer) for conveniently providing vertical buffer space above
> and below a LaTeX object. The new optional argument allows one to
> specify the amount of buffer to add above and below the object.
> Finally, authentic documentation is provided, sorely lacking in prior versions.

thanks for the upload; i installed the new version, and updated the
i apologise for continuing delays in making announcements. my health

For the CTAN team
verbatimbox – Deposit verbatim text in a box
The package provides a verbbox environment (which uses
techniques similar to those of the boxedverbatim
environment of the
moreverb package) to place its
contents into a globally available box, or into a box specified by
The global box may then be used in a variety of situations (for
example, providing a replica of the boxedverbatim
environment itself). A valuable use is in places where the
standard verbatim environment (which is based on a
trivlist) may not appear.
The package makes use of the
verbatim package (which is a
required part of any LaTeX distribution).
