Description

A package is provided which defines a function called HoldTemporary. This new type of hold works like HoldForm but is automatically released by nearly any function. A function called PowerTogether is also defined as an example of how HoldTemporary can be useful. Powertogether simplifies certain expressions involving Power[_,_] which can't be simplified using FullSimplify.
