ABOUT

The logreq package helps to automate a typical LaTeX workflow that
involves running LaTeX several times, running tools such as BibTeX
or makeindex, and so on. It will log requests like "please rerun
LaTeX" or "please run BibTeX on file X" to an external XML file
which lists all open tasks in a machine-readable format. Compiler
scripts and integrated LaTeX editing environments may parse this
file to determine the next steps in the workflow in a way that is
more efficient than parsing the main log file. In sum, the package
will do two things: 1) enable package authors to use LaTeX commands
to issue requests, 2) collect all requests from all packages and
write them to an external XML file at the end of the document.

lo­greq – Sup­port for au­toma­tion of the LaTeX work­flow

The pack­age helps to au­to­mate a typ­i­cal LaTeX work­flow that in­volves run­ning LaTeX sev­eral times, run­ning tools such as BibTeX or makein­dex, and so on. It will log re­quests like “please re­run LaTeX” or “please run BibTeX on file X” to an ex­ter­nal XML file which lists all open tasks in a ma­chine-read­able for­mat. Com­piler scripts and in­te­grated LaTeX edit­ing en­vi­ron­ments may parse this file to de­ter­mine the next steps in the work­flow in a way that is more ef­fi­cient than pars­ing the main log file. In sum, the pack­age will do two things:

  • en­able pack­age au­thors to use LaTeX com­mands to is­sue re­quests,
  • col­lect all re­quests from all pack­ages and write them to an ex­ter­nal XML file at the end of the doc­u­ment.
