Overview

pkgcheck is a utility which the author uses to check uploaded packages to CTAN before installing them. It is a binary running on Linux only.

There is no Windows version planned.

Dependencies

The pkgcheck binary is a 64-bit statically linked binary, and thus it should run also on older Linux versions.

It uses the following external programs:

  • pdfinfo for checking pdf documents
  • unzip for temporarily unpacking a TDS zip archive

Installing the binary

Copy the binary from bin/pkgcheck to a suitable location on your hard disk, and (recommended) make sure the directory is in the PATH or call pkgcheck using an absolute path name.

Documentation

The documentation is docs/pkgcheck.pdf. It contains a description of all fatal, error, warning and information messages.

Build the documentation

Run either xelatex or lualatex. Note that -shell-escape is required.

cd docs 
lualatex -shell-escape pkgcheck.tex

pkgcheck – CTAN package checker

Packages uploaded to CTAN will be checked by the CTAN team before they get installed.

This package provides the pkgckeck command line utility used by CTAN members for carrying out those checks that can be performed in an automated way.

pkgcheck is a 64-bit static Linux binary, and runs out of the box. The only prerequisites are that unzip and pdfinfo be available.

A Windows version is not planned.
