      \listfiles Alignment with Date and Version Columns
                  (C) Uwe Lueck 2012/10/30

While `longnamefilelist.sty' improves LaTeX's \listfiles with 
respect to long base filenames only, the present `nicefilelist.sty' 
can keep separate columns for 
(i) date (ii) version, and (iii) "caption" 
(don't write caption text in date column), 
their alignment not being disturbed by short filename extensions 
such as `.fd'. This is achieved basing on the `monofill' package.

v0.7 offers a package option `[wrap]' for automatic word wrapping 
within the caption column, using the `hardwrap' package, so 
filenames and captions can be quite long without disturbing the 

As opposed to the `dateiliste' package, this is about the plain 
text output in the `.log' file or, with `myfilist', as a stand-
alone plain text file.

The package `latexfileinfo-pkgs'


describes `nicefilelist' in a more general context. A file 
`nicefilelist.RLS' provides release information accessible by 
packages described there.

nicefilelist – Provide \listfiles alignment

The package extends longnamefilelist, keeping separate columns for date, version and “caption” (the caption now separately listed). Alignment is not disturbed by short file name extensions, such as “.fd”.

The package is not compatible with longnamefilelist: users need to re-read the documentation.
