Synopsis[edit]

\ifvbox<0..255> <tex-code-1> [\else <tex-code-2>] \fi

Description[edit]

The \ifvbox command denotes the start of an if-then-else control structure, where <0..255> must expand to an integer from 0 to 255. If the box register \box<0..255> contains a vbox, then <tex-code-1> is processed and <tex-code-2> is ignored, if the \else section is included. If \box<0..255> does not contains a vbox then <tex-code-1> is ignored and <tex-code-2> is processed, if the \else section is included.
