          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'.

inputtrc – Trace which file loads which

The package produces screen/log messages of the form ‘<current> INPUTTING <next>’ reporting 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.
