When processing a source file, !ConTeXt? (via texexec(1)) saves information (including table of contents, tables of figures and tables, index entries, cross-references) in a ``utility file called FILENAME.tui. After each successful run, this utility file is postprocessed by texutil to organize the information for the next run.
texutil performs a number of useful functions:
Postprocessing references, including sorting index and list entries (with --references)
Extracting documentation and other types of information from !ConTeXt? source files (with --documents)
Logfile analysis (with --logfile)
Collecting information about graphic files to help with typesetting (with --figures)
Print a usage summary to stdout.
Specify the language for messages. One of en (English), de (German), or nl (Dutch). The default language is English.
Specify the name of the output file.
--purge [ ''BASENAME''?
Delete temporary files. Specifying an optional BASENAME will only affect the temporary files that begin with that BASENAME.
Redirects stdout to the log file (texutil.log, by default). When used with --verbose, a summary is printed to stdout, while any other output is written to the log file.
texutil --figures --silent --verbose somefile.png
will output something like
n=somefile.png t=png x=0bp y=0bp w=443bp h=591bp
to stdout, placing other output into texutil.log. This information can be piped into another program for further processing.
Specify the SUFFIX of the file you want texutil to process.
The --references flag instructs texutil to process information about cross-references, index entries, and other data requiring more than one pass to process in the !ConTeXt? utility file.
Index and sorted list entries are sorted before being written out; redundant index entries are removed.
texutil is called automatically by texexec(1) during its processing runs unless you specify otherwise. texutil can also be run by hand, using the form
texutil --references FILENAME
This command would cause texutil to load the utility file FILENAME.tui, sort and convert the contents of that file, and write the results to FILENAME.tuo.
Options specific to this mode are:
Sort ``IJ as ``Y. Often used when processing files written in Dutch.
Convert ``high ASCII values into equivalent TeX commands. This switch is provided for backward compatibility.
Take tex(1) accent commands into consideration when sorting. (Otherwise, quotes are considered to be boundary characters for strings.)
!ConTeXt? source files often contain documentation (see USAGE for more information about the format) or other information that can be extracted by texutil when called with the --documents flag:
texutil --documents FILENAME
This command produces a file called FILENAME.ted from a !ConTeXt? file called FILENAME.tex.
The --sources flag does the opposite: Documentation lines are stripped out of the output, which is written to a file called FILENAME.tes.
Historically, !ConTeXt? source files included other forms of information -- such as syntax definitions, macro definitions, and editor templates -- that can be extracted with the following flags:
Extract TeXEdit macro information (tex-tud -- see USAGE)
Extract !ConTeXt? syntax definitions (tex-texutil.tus)
You can specify what information texutil should report with the following options:
Extract information about overfull boxes. By default, this flag will cause texedit to report both horizontal and vertical overfull boxes. If youre only interested in one kind, you can specify --hbox or --vbox instead.
Exclude reports about boxes that are less than SIZE points too large.
The --figures flag tells texutil to generate information about one or more (non-EPS) graphics files for use in typesetting. Called as, for example,
texutil --figures *.png *.tif
texutil will scan the current directory for PNG and TIFF files and extract some useful information about their sizes and types. By default, this information is stored in a file called texutil.tuf, which is consulted by !ConTeXt? when typesetting a page with a non-EPS image file -- see the example given for the --silent flag for an alternative.
Adjust the bounding box of an EPS file to the dimensions of the output page. This option also removes some redundant information and marks files as converted so that they will not be affected by subsequent runs.
Documentation lines included in !ConTeXt? source files can be specified by beginning lines with the following strings:
TeXEdit information lines (mostly in Dutch)
Macro code needed to processs the documentation
