Scott Pakin submitted an update to the bytefield package. Version number: 2.5 License type: lppl1.3c Summary description: Create illustrations for network protocol specifications Announcement text:
The bytefield package helps the user create illustrations for network protocol specifications and anything else that utilizes fields of data. These illustrations show how the bits and bytes are laid out in a packet, register, or memory. Version 2.5 adds a three handy new features. First, the \bitbox, \bitboxes, and \wordbox commands now accept the same optional parameters as various other package commands. Second, a new bgcolor parameter specifies a box's background color. Third, a new perword parameter enables demarcating or decorating individual words within a multi-word \wordbox. Thanks to Victor Toni for the idea that led to the perword parameter and for his help testing.
