logreq – Support for automation of the workflow

The package helps to automate a typical workflow that involves running several times, running tools such as or makeindex, and so on. It will log requests like “please rerun ” or “please run on file X” to an external XML file which lists all open tasks in a machine-readable format. Compiler scripts and integrated editing environments may parse this file to determine the next steps in the workflow in a way that is more efficient than parsing the main log file. In sum, the package will do two things:

  • enable package authors to use commands to issue requests,
  • collect all requests from all packages and write them to an external XML file at the end of the document.
