Announcement text:

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}. This release fix some bugs and offers an english manual.

This package is at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/generic/xlop/ . Information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/xlop (it may take a day for the information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . For your users group see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .

## 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.)
