boxhandler – Flexible Captioning and Deferred Box/List Printing

The pack­age al­lows the user to op­ti­mise pre­sen­ta­tion of ta­bles and fig­ures. Box­han­dler will lay out ta­ble and fig­ure cap­tions with a va­ri­ety of stylis­tic ap­per­ances, and will also al­low fig­ures and ta­bles to be “wrapped” in a man­ner con­sis­tent with many busi­ness and gov­ern­ment doc­u­ments.

For a doc­u­ment that might ap­pear in dif­fer­ent venues with dif­fer­ent for­mat­ting, box­han­dler per­mits the cre­ation of a source doc­u­ment that can, with a sin­gle-line change in the source code, pro­duce an out­put that has very dif­fer­ent lay­out from the base­line con­fig­u­ra­tion, not only in terms of cap­tion style, but more im­por­tantly in terms of the lo­ca­tions where fig­ures, ta­bles and lists ap­pear (or not) in the doc­u­ment.

De­fer­ral rou­tines also al­low one to keep all fig­ure and ta­ble data in a sep­a­rate source file, while nonethe­less pro­duc­ing a doc­u­ment with fig­ures and ta­bles ap­pear­ing in the de­sired lo­ca­tion.
