The gath­erenum pack­age (ab)uses the in­line enu­mer­a­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties of en­u­mitem to add a « dis­played » enu­mer­a­tion mode, trig­gered by adding |gath­ered| to the key-val op­tion list of the enu­mer­ate en­vi­ron­ment. The end re­sult is sim­i­lar to a reg­u­lar enu­mer­ate en­vi­ron­ment wrapped in a mul­ti­cols en­vi­ron­ment, with the fol­low­ing ad­van­tages: * gath­ered enu­mer­ate can pack items de­pend­ing on their ac­tual width rather than a fixed, con­stant num­ber per line. * it fills items in a line-ma­jor or­der (in­stead of col­umn-ma­jor or­der), which my stu­dents found less con­fus­ing. YMMV.

gath­erenum – A crossover of align* and enu­mer­ate

This pack­age (ab)uses the in­line enu­mer­a­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties of en­u­mitem to add a “dis­played” enu­mer­a­tion mode, trig­gered by adding ‘gath­ered’ to the key-value op­tion list of the enu­mer­ate en­vi­ron­ment. The end re­sult is sim­i­lar to a reg­u­lar enu­mer­ate en­vi­ron­ment wrapped in a mul­ti­cols en­vi­ron­ment, with the fol­low­ing ad­van­tages:

  • Gathered enu­mer­ate can pack items de­pend­ing on their ac­tual width rather than a fixed, con­stant num­ber per line.
  • Gathered enu­mer­a­tion fills items in a line-ma­jor or­der (in­stead of col­umn-ma­jor or­der), which my stu­dents found less con­fus­ing. YMMV.

The pack­age de­pends on en­u­mitem, ex­pl3, and xparse,
