linegoal – A "dimen" that returns the space left on the line

The linegoal package provides a macro \linegoal to be used with \setlength:
\setlength<some dimen>\linegoal
will set <some dimen> to the horizontal length of the remainder of the line.

This is achieved using the \pdfsavepos primitive of pdf, through the zref-savepos package.

Example:

  Some text: \begin{tabularx}\linegoal{|l|X|} \hline
               one & two \\
  	     three & four \\\hline
  	   \end{tabularx}
  
will position the table after the initial text, and make the table fill the rest of the line.
