Log2errmsg, a LaTeX log analyser


Dick Grune

The program log2errmsg reads a LaTeX log, extracts the first error message from it, and formats it as a one-line CC/Unix error message suitable for emacs, vi, etc.

It is best applied in the Makefile like this:

         pdflatex XXX.tex || log2errmsg <XXX.log

This way log2errmsg is called only when the call of pdflatex fails.
