20.6 lrbox



This is the environment form of the \sbox and \savebox commands, and is equivalent to them. See \sbox & \savebox, for the full description.

The text inside the environment is saved in the box register referred to by variable box-cmd. The variable name box-cmd must begin with a backslash, \. You must allocate this box register in advance with \newsavebox (see \newsavebox). In this example the environment is convenient for entering the tabular.
