CTAN up­date: tex­doc

Date: June 7, 2018 6:18:34 PM CEST
Takuto Asakura sub­mit­ted an up­date to the tex­doc pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 3.0 Li­cense type: gpl Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Doc­u­men­ta­tion ac­cess for TeX Live An­nounce­ment text:
This is a big up­date for Tex­doc since 2012! There are two big fea­tures in Tex­doc 3.0. 1. New op­tion parser Now, you can spec­ify mul­ti­ple op­tions like: $ tex­doc -vsl foo (this is equiv­a­lent to spec­i­fy­ing "-v -s -l") Please note that the be­hav­ior of the short op­tion "-d" have been changed. It *re­quires* an ar­gu­ment with­out "=", e.g.: $ tex­doc -d score bar (this is equiv­a­lent to spec­i­fy­ing "--de­bug=score") We added a new op­tion "-D" as a short ver­sion of "--de­bug=all". Please see the help text for more de­tails. 2. Fuzzy search When the nor­mal search can't find any doc­u­ment in TeX Live, Tex­doc will ex­e­cute fuzzy search on the list of pack­age names with­out user-in­ter­ac­tions. The re­sults of fuzzy search are shown by "info" mes­sage. (you can see that with the com­mand line op­tion "-v") The de­fault al­lowance of Leven­shtein dis­tance is 5. You can change this de­fault value by spec­i­fy­ing "fuzzy_level" in your tex­doc.cnf: fuzzy_level = 3 If "fuzzy_level" set to 0, the fea­ture will be dis­abled. This up­date also con­tains sev­eral small bug fixes and im­prove­ments. For the quick un­der­stand­ing of the new func­tions, the slide I used for a talk in Ba­choTeX 2018 is avail­able from Speaker Deck: https://speak­erdeck.com/wt­snjp/tex­doc3 One more thing (IMPORTANT for dis­trib­u­tors): from v3.0, we won't in­clude Data.tlpdb.lua (the pseudo cache file) in our repos­i­tory. If your dis­tri­bu­tion do not ship the tlpdb, you have to pre-gen­er­ate the pseudo cache file to make Tex­doc work­able. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, please visit our GitHub repos­i­tory: https://github.com/TeX-Live/tex­doc
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/sup­port/tex­doc More in­for­ma­tion is at https://www.ctan.org/pkg/tex­doc

tex­doc – Doc­u­men­ta­tion ac­cess for Live

tex­doc is a Lua script pro­vid­ing easy ac­cess to the doc­u­men­ta­tion in Live: PDF, DVI, plain text files, and more. View­ing and other con­fig­u­ra­tion can be ex­ten­sively cus­tomized. It is dis­tributed with Live; MiK pro­vides a pro­gram by the same name to do the same job, but its im­ple­men­ta­tion is un­re­lated.
