CTAN Update: bytefield

Date: June 22, 2011 11:17:27 PM CEST
On Wed, 22 Jun 2011 Scott Pakin submitted an update to the bytefield package. Summary description: Create illustrations for network protocol specifications. License type: lppl 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 2.1 of bytefield includes code due to Renaud Pacalet for continuing the bit numbering when a word is typeset split across lines; it gives \\ an optional "length" argument just like in a tabular; and it makes bit endianness a full-fledged bytefield option that can be specified once per document rather than requiring that it be specified in each individual bytefield environment (although that too is allowed).
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/bytefield . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/bytefield (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 . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html . Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
