Note 1: This package is obsolete. For LaTeX-format 2020-10-01 and newer:
Instead of \addglobalwarning{ something } use
\AddToHook{enddocument/info}{ something } and do not load the warning package.

Note 2: The package author, Harald Harders, is inactive.

Sometimes a class or package has to make a global warning such as
"Rerun for this or that reason" or "This is draft, change this
before the final run". If you are generating them with
the warning appears very early before the filelist. Then the warning can easily be
overseen. This package provides a command that surely puts the warning at the end
near to the global warnings generated by LaTeX itself. You can add a warning to a list
of user defined warnings using the command \addglobalwarning as it can be seen in
the example below.

"warning" is available on CTAN:

Also a ZIP file is provided that contains the files:
the manual (warning-doc.tex and warning-doc.pdf,
including examples),
the style file (warning.sty),
and this README:


a) Download the warning files from CTAN.
   If necessary, unpack them.
b) Install the file "warning.sty" in your TDS tree:
     cp warning.sty TDS:tex/latex/warning/
   Replace "TDS:" by the prefix of your TDS tree
   (texmf directory).
c) Create the documentation, if necessary, e.g.
     pdflatex warning.tex
     pdflatex warning.tex
d) Update the databases if necessary, e.g. for TeX Live
     texhash or mktexlsr.
e) Create the warning-example.pdf, if necessary,
     by copying the example code from the documentation
     into (a) separate .tex file(s) and compiling that (those).
f) Copy the documentation files to
   README, warning.pdf, warning.tex,
   and the example(s), if you created any.

warning – Global warnings at the end of the logfile

This package is obsolete. For -format 2020-10-01 and newer: Instead of \addglobalwarning{ something } use \AddToHook{enddocument/info}{ something } and do not load the warning package.

For older formats this package provides a command that generates a list of warnings that are printed out at the very end of the logfile. This is useful for warnings such as ‘Rerun for this or that reason’ or ‘This is a draft, change it before the final run’.
