rubber-info: extract information from LaTeX documents
NAMErubber-info - extract information from LaTeX documents
SYNOPSISrubber-info [options] [action] source
DESCRIPTIONRubber-info is a utility for extracting various kinds of information from a LaTeX document. Information can be extracted from the source (for instance when calculating dependencies) or from the compilation log files (to extract errors and warnings). This program is a complement for the compilation system rubber(1).
The command-line options are those used by rubber(1) plus one of the actions described below.
ACTIONSOne of the following command-line options must be specified, to decide which information to extract. Of course, for actions that read a log file, a compilation must have been done before. If none of these actions is specified, --check is assumed.
- Extracts from the log file the places in the source where bad boxes appeared (these are the famous overfull and underfull \hbox and \vbox)
- Report errors if there are any, otherwise report undefined references if there are any, otherwise list warnings and bad boxes. This is the default action.
- Analyse the source files and produce a space-separated list of all the files that the document depends on and that Rubber cannot rebuild.
- Extract from the log file the list of errors that occured during the last compilation.
- -h, --help
- Display the list of all available options and exit nicely.
- Report the list of undefined or multiply defined references (i.e. the \ref's that are not defined by one \label).
- Analyse the source files and produce a list of dependency rules. One rule is produced for each intermediate target that would be made when running rubber. Rules are formatted in the style of Makefiles.
- Print the version number and exit nicely.
- Stupidly enumerate all LaTeX warnings, i.e. all the lines in the log file that contain the string "Warning".
