When I look at the latex command-line output, I sometimes overlook errors or
warnings due to the lots of messages latex displays. It it possible to tell
latex to report errors and warnings only?

A LaTeX aware editor can parse the output for you, so maybe you don't need
to worry too much about latex verbosity; it's very likely though that your
latex recognize a -quiet switch. Try "latex --help" for further
information.

the following is an extract from the miktex (latex on Windows) manual:

The command-line switch -quiet suppresses all diagnostic messages. No
screen output is produced, unless there are errors. The -quiet
command-line switch implies -c-style-errors and
-interaction=batchmode, i.e. errors are shown in a "C style form" and
do not stop the compilation process.

For example, the input file foo.tex 

Example 5.1. foo.tex

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
What's \This?
\end{documnt}
	
would cause TeX to print one error message, as in 

C:\> latex -quiet foo.tex
foo.tex:3: Undefined control sequence
C:\> 


i'm not sure if it'll work on a *nix type system...but hey...you didnt
specify your O.S....


all the best

Hello Joe,

my latex doesn't recognize -quiet. I use the latex from the
tetex-installation for Unix.

Less verbose output of Latex

Verbose output vs. discarding output
Shell is ksh I want to add a [-v] switch to a shell function to either be verbose or, in the absense of this switch, send all stdout and stderr to /dev/null. What is the best practice for this? Something like [Use getopts or regular command line processing to set $verbose] [[ ! -z $verbose ]] && output=/dev/fd/0 || output=/dev/null exec 1>$output 2>&1 .... Does the 'exec' apply to the calling script as well? (I dont want it to) Any other way to do this?

Output for latex
Recently I've been making some fairly complex plots (surface plots and colour maps) for use in latex documents. As I understand it, there seems to be a dilemma between using one of the latex-specific terminals (latex, pslatex, epslatex, eepic, tikz, pstricks,...), which can create unreasonably large files, but allow you to have nicely- formatted text, and using one of the bitmap formats (png, jpeg, etc.) which generates small output but makes it difficult to give the labels, etc., a look consistent with the rest of the document. Is there some way of getting the best of both worl...

Convert LaTeX or LaTeX output to MS Word without preserving text
A conference requires that I submit both a Word document and a PDF file in the same typographic format. I can easily convert to a messy Word document, so I tried that, but they want it to be formatted exactly like the PDF. How can I convert a LaTeX file, PDF, DVI, &c. to a vector image with no text and then assemble them in a Microsoft Word document? This is probably not what you want, but just in case... screen capture each pdf page to a jpeg, and insert each jpeg into a separate page in the word document.

Latex and SAS output
Hi, I am having a little difficulty with the latex tagset. The output runs off the page.

I also wanted to know how to change the pdfbookmarks so that when I paste it into my new document each PROC will be a subsection and thus subsubsection, etc.? Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Leanne ...

Clickable latex output
Hello everyone! Not quite sure if this is the right group, if not and if someone knows a better one, please point me to it... Anyway, my question is the following: Is there a latex output viewer (div,ps,pdf...) so that when i right click something in it, it will point me back to my favourite latex editor, at the point where this feature is located? (eg, it might work only for text but it could also include other stuff as well) One way of doing so would be to have a special debug mode in latex, and in this mode the output would be filled with (A LOT) of hyperlinks to the document...

Surpressing latex output
Hi all, I'm writing a fairly long document, and latex's verbose output hurts my eyes. I really only care about informational messages (like what packages or fonts its loading) when I'm tracking down a problem. Is there a way to surpress all (or most) of its output except for warnings and errors? Alternatively, colorgcc is a super nice utility that colors gcc's output. Warnings are colored yellow, and erros are colored in red. Everything else is left untouched. It's totally useful for long programming sessions, and very configurable. Is there anything like it for late...

Unit test output verbosity
[Note: parts of this message were removed to make it a legal post.] Hey, I have a question. I wrote some unit tests for my simple app. Since it's a part of a larger whole, it's managed inside a continuous integration framework. For that purpose I would like to report the unit tests that are executed not only by their overall failure or success, but in more detail. Is there any way in which I can increase the verbosity of messages sent to standard output, so that I can see the names of all test case subclasses, and all test methods, with a distinction whether or not they succeeded?
