In the context of a new LaTeX web-based IDE, we're writing a parser for Synctex.

Where can we find a specification or explanation of its structure and content in order to correctly parse it?

Aren't you supposed to just use (link to) the SyncTeX libraries rather than write your own parser? –  Joseph Wright Jan 31 at 9:31
    
Thanks Joseph, the thing is that we are in the browser, in Javascript :) –  Martin Monperrus Jan 31 at 9:34
    
Official page (linked by e.g. TeXworks help) is itexmac.sourceforge.net/SyncTeX.html: does that help at all? –  Joseph Wright Jan 31 at 9:41
    
The link "Specifications" is broken. –  Martin Monperrus Jan 31 at 9:48
    
@MartinMonperrus, it is an internal link to the same page, seems they have to put it on the page. So I'm guessing you need to look at those parser files on the page. –  daleif Jan 31 at 9:58

There is a manual file:

man 5 synctex

also available at: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/lucid/man5/synctex.5.html
