Comments and suggestions are welcome.
Date: October 2011.

The package is set of macros to write
format-independent (and -aware) packages.
It is, of course, format-independent,
and requires e-TeX.
Relevant information can be found in texapi-doc.pdf

Files in this distributions:

texapi.tex     => The package (no wrapper files for format, of course).
texapi-doc.tex => The source of the documentation.
texapi-doc.pdf => The typeset documentation.

To process the documentation source, you need the 
PiTeX files (available on CTAN) on top of plain TeX
with LuaTeX at least v.0.6. Non-free fonts are used.
... err, no actually, don't typeset it, the PiTeX version
on CTAN is way too old. It'll be updated someday.

Licensing of this package is covered by LPPL.

texapi – Macros to write format-independent packages

Texapi provides utility macros to write format-independent (and -aware) packages. It is similar in spirit to the etoolbox, except that it isn’t tied to .

Tools include: engine and format detection, expansion control, command definition and manipulation, various testing macros, string operations, and highly customizable while and for loops.

The package requires e- (and, should you want to compile its documentation, the pitex package is also needed).
