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.
