[OS X TeX] LaTeX question

Hi all.

I have following question which is more or less OT because it is not  
TeX-on-OS-X-related.  I would like to "dump" a _copy_ of some text -  
in particular numbered environments - to an external file, which I  
can later include in my LaTeX source, but it must be an expanded  
version of the text.

The idea is that at the end of some course notes I have a list of all  
theorems in their original form, with the corresponding original  
numberings. I.e., if there is a theorem in the main body given by

   The sum of $1$ and $2$ is given by

and typeset as

Theorem 2.1. The sum of 1 and 2 is given by
                     3.                   (5)

I would like the same text to be dumped to an auxiliary file so that  
I can include it at the end of the course notes. So I would again the  
same text at the end of the book.

Of course, If I have this mechanism, I can also decide to expand the  
body of the theorem separately by redefining the environment, and  
thus I could output

Theorem 2.1 on page 715.  The sum of 1 and 2
is given by
                     3.                   (5)

Does anybody know how to do it?
