Nelson Lago submitted the texlogsieve package. Version: 1.0.0-beta-1 2021-12-16 License: gpl3+ Summary description: Filter and summarize LaTeX log files Announcement text:
texlogsieve is yet another program to process LaTeX logfiles. Differently from most other tools, it does not merely search the file for some relevant strings; it tries to actually identify where *all* messages begin and end, even if a message spans several lines. It also does a lot of work to correctly identify wrapped lines. The current output format is somewhat simple and the code has only been tested by myself, which is why I consider this a first beta, but the hard parts are done.

texlogsieve – Filter and summarize log files

texlogsieve reads a log file (or the standard input if no file is specified), filters out less relevant messages, and displays a summary report. It is a texlua script, similar in spirit to tools such as texfot, texloganalyser, rubber-info, textlog_extract, texlogparser, and others. Highlights:

  • Two reports: the most important messages from the log file followed by a summary of repeated messages, undefined references etc.;
  • The program goes to great lengths to correctly handle line wrapping and does a much better job at that than existing tools;
  • Multiline messages are treated as a single entity;
  • Several options to control which messages should be filtered out;
  • No messages are accidentally removed;
  • The summary report is currently simple, but useful.
