Parshape macros for LaTeX2e

Provides a front-end to the standard TeX \parshape macro. Allows
length registers to be reused, and \parshape commands to be generated
using loops and other TeX and LaTeX constructs.

Example usage:


 \parshapelenout{\len} \parshapelenout{15em}
 \parshapelenout{\len} \parshapelenout{9em}
 \parshapelenout{0em} \parshapelenout{\len}
\texttt{The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.}

Produces (assuming a tt font with 1em per character):

 The quick brown
       fox jumps
over the
lazy dog

Commands are also available to process arrays of lengths in various
different ways; see PDF documentation for details.

rjlparshap – Support for use of \parshape in

The package provides macros and environments that relieve the programmer of some of the difficulties of using \parshape in macros. It does not actually calculate shapes in the way that the shapepar package does.
