[vox-tech] LaTeX longtable



I've got a LaTeX longtable that I'm trying to work with, which is being
widened as it passes through various chunks (due to longer text appearing
in later rows).

In other words, depending on the size of LTchunksize, it looks like this:
(small chunksize)

     abc  123  hello world     1234
     def  456  hello world     1234
     abc  123  hello world     1234
     def  456  hello world     1234
  xyz  999  goodbye everyone      1234    <--- with small chunksize, the
  lmn  111  hello world           1234         table starts getting wider
  abc  123  hello world           1234         closer to the first wider row
ooo  911  this is a really wide one  1234

or this:  (larger chunksize)


     abc  123  hello world     1234
     def  456  hello world     1234
  abc  123  hello world           1234     <--- these couple end up
  def  456  hello world           1234          being in the same 'chunk'
  xyz  999  goodbye everyone      1234     <--- as this wider one, so they
  lmn  111  hello world           1234          get widened, too
abc  123  hello world                1234  <--- same thing happens here,
ooo  911  this is a really wide one  1234  <--- because of this one



What I really want, of course, is the ENTIRE longtable to be as wide
as the widest one.  Setting LTchunksize to something unreasonably large
(like 500) seems to break LaTeX (all but one page gets rendered).

I assumed I could do something silly like set the longtable's width
to, oh, I dunno... 8 inches?  But the "\begin{longtable}" syntax
doesn't seem to like it very much. :)


Any ideas!?


Thanks!
