          Tracing Which File Loads Which

             (C) Uwe Lueck 2012/10/10


`inputtrc.sty' produces screen/log messages 
`<current> INPUTTING <next>' on LaTeX input commands, 
<current> and <next> being file names. 
The message indents reflect the input nesting level. 
This can be turned on and off, and the "indent unit" 
can be chosen. `RETURNING TO <current>' may be added.
These messages should help when you otherwise get a screen 
message about some input line number and wonder in which 
file that is.

The implementation somewhat resembles packages `currfile',
`filehook', `FiNK', and `inputfile'.

Typesetting the documentation requires the 'nicetext' bundle,

in­put­trc – Trace which file loads which

The pack­age pro­duces screen/log mes­sages of the form ‘<cur­rent> INPUTTING <next>’ re­port­ing LaTeX in­put com­mands (<cur­rent> and <next> be­ing file names). The mes­sage is in­dented to re­flect the level of in­put nest­ing.

Trac­ing may be turned on and off, and the unit of in­den­ta­tion may be ad­justed.

The im­ple­men­ta­tion some­what re­sem­bles those of pack­ages FiNK and in­put­file.
