# Caption of longtable tables when using memoir

It seems the longtable package provides its own captions totally separate from the ones provided by memoir. There is a question on this site hinting at using the caption package for styling the longtable captions, however I am not sure the caption package should be used together with memoir since it provides its own captions which I don't want to have overloaded with other stuff. How would you recommend styling longtable captions when using the memoir captions for all other captions?

It it on my todo list, but it might be easier for you to simply use the caption package. AFAIR it does cover the longtable caption –  daleif Aug 15 '11 at 8:18

I found on another similar question that there is a package known as ltcaption which can be used for changing the looks of captions for only longtable. It is not the perfect way since it will not be identical to the caption command of memoir I guess, but it is at least a step in the right direction.
