The LaTeX fileerr package

Version: 5.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

Fileerr installs files in the LaTeX/required/tools subdirectory as part of the Standard LaTeX Tools Bundle. The files handle the LaTeX " File not found" error, which occurs when LaTeX searches for a missing .tex file.

When LaTeX is unable to find a file, it halts and asks for an alternate file name. The compiler enters a loop until it gets a valid file name. The fileerr files provides a graceful exit from the loop by creating a series of .tex files that direct LaTeX to continue the compilation, provide additional compilation messages, or halt the compilation.

When the File not found error occurs and the compiler halts, you can resume operation by indicating which file LaTeX should run:

File Effect
s or q or r Continue the compilation
h Open standard LaTeX error options
x or e Exit the compilation
