CTAN Up­date: ex­sol

Wal­ter Daems sub­mit­ted an up­date to the ex­sol pack­age. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: The pack­age fa­cil­i­tates type­set­ting ex­er­cises and so­lu­tions from one LaTeX source to a sep­a­rate so­lu­tions book. Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
The ex­sol pack­age pro­vides macros to al­low for em­bed­ding ex­er­cises and so­lu­tions in the LaTeX source of an in­struc­tional text (e.g., a book or a course text) while gen­er­at­ing the fol­low­ing sep­a­rate doc­u­ments: - your orig­i­nal text that only con­tains the ex­er­cises, and - a so­lu­tion book that only con­tains the so­lu­tions to the ex­er­cises (a pack­age op­tion ex­ists to also copy the ex­er­cises them­selves to the so­lu­tion book). The for­mer is gen­er­ated when run­ning LaTeX on your doc­u­ment. This run writes the so­lu­tions to a sec­ondary file that can be in­cluded into a sim­ple doc­u­ment har­ness, such that when run­ning LaTeX on the lat­ter, you can gen­er­ate a nice so­lu­tion book. The code of the ex­sol pack­age was taken al­most lit­er­ally from fan­cyvrb [http://www.ctan.org/pkg/fan­cyvrb]. There­fore, all cred­its go to the au­thors/main­tain­ers of fan­cyvrb.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/ex­sol . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/ex­sol (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

ex­sol – Ex­er­cises and so­lu­tions from the same source, into a book

This pack­age pro­vides macros to al­low for em­bed­ding ex­er­cises and so­lu­tions in the source of an in­struc­tional text (e.g., a book or a course text) while gen­er­at­ing the fol­low­ing sep­a­rate doc­u­ments:

  • your orig­i­nal text that only con­tains the ex­er­cises, and
  • a so­lu­tion book that con­tains only the so­lu­tions to the ex­er­cises (op­tion­ally, the ex­er­cises them­selves can also be copied to the so­lu­tion book).

The ex­er­cise data are gen­er­ated when run­ning on your doc­u­ment; the first run also writes the so­lu­tions to a sec­ondary file that may be in­cluded in a sim­ple doc­u­ment har­ness, may be pro­cessed by , to gen­er­ate a nice so­lu­tion book.

The code of the pack­age was de­rived (in large part) from fan­cyvrb.
