# CTAN Update: etoc

Date: November 25, 2012 12:22:20 PM CET
Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the etoc package. Summary description: easily customizable TOCs License type: lppl Announcement text:
1.04 The main new feature is support for \label and \ref: I. \tableofcontents \label{toc:A} or \tableofcontents* \label{toc:A} creates a label toc:A as usual (the starred form gives a `local' table of contents). II. Elsewhere in the document, \tableofcontents \ref{toc:A} will re-display the contents of the TOC with label toc:A (the \ref is detected and swallowed by \tableofcontents). III. One can also do \tableofcontents \label{toc:B} \ref{toc:A} Then \ref{toc:B} may be used elsewhere in the document to refer to this toc:B location (it just prints the number of the concerned TOC, but is of course an hyperlink if package hyperref has been loaded). The two TOCs with labels toc:A and toc:B will have the same contents but their layouts and titles are decided locally and may differ completely from one another.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/etoc . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/etoc (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 .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

## etoc – Completely customisable TOCs

The package gives the user complete control of how the entries of the table of contents should be constituted from the name, number, and page number of each sectioning unit. The layout is controlled by the definition of ‘line styles’ for each sectioning level used in the document.

The package provides its own custom line styles (which may be used as examples), and continues to support the standard formatting inherited from the document classes, but the package can also allow the user to delegate the details to packages dealing with list making environments (such as enumitem). The package’s default global style typesets tables of contents in a multi-column format, with either a standard heading, or a ruled title (optionally with a frame around the table).

The \tableofcontents command may be used arbitrarily many times in the same document, while \localtableofcontents provides a ‘local’ table of contents.
