etextools provides many (purely expandable) tools for LaTeX -------------------------------
- Extensive list management (csv lists, lists of single tokens/characters, etoolbox lists):
   . purely expandable loops (csvloop, forcsvloop etc.)
   . conversion (csvtolist etc.))
   . addition/deletion (csvadd, listdel etc.)
   . purely expandable linear interpolation (interval, locinterplin)
- Tests on strings (among them \ifstrnum to check if a string could be parsed by eTeX's \number)
- Selective detokenization (\detokenizeChars) and character-test
- Purely expandable macros with options (\FE@testopt) or modifiers (\FE@modifiers)
- Vectorized form of \futurelet: \futuredef can read more than one single token

              The pdf documentation contains a lot of example in verbatim.
                         *** Any suggestion welcome ! ***
