silence – Selective filtering of error messages and warnings

The package allows the user to filter out unwanted warnings and error messages issued by , packages and classes, so they won’t pop out when there’s nothing one can do about them.

Filtering goes from the very broad (“avoid all messages by such and such”) to the fine-grained (“avoid messages that begin with…”).

Messages may be saved to an external file for later reference.
