# Question that led to a new program

There is a way of marking questions that led to a new package. However, recently one of my own questions inspired me to create a program (written in Python) to help me manipulate tex-files. Is this something that we want to have a way of marking as well, or are these type of events too infrequent/not relevant?

The reason lies in the confusion by the word package -- on one hand, it means "a thing that has something to do with \usepackage", on the other hand, it means "whatever is a package on CTAN or elsewhere". Your new Python program IMHO falls into the 2nd definition of a package.
• i think including it among the "new package" questions is reasonable. but if that idea is accepted, the text of that question needs to be extended, and ideally some convention defined for identifying "program" as opposed to \usepackage package is needed. – barbara beeton May 12 '15 at 14:13
