comment Simplest way to extract errors from log files
@David There's no ? because of -interaction=nonstopmode. Is it possible to put in a marker where the ? would be or preserve the ? while making sure that TeX will never try to read any input?

comment Simplest way to extract errors from log files
@SeanAllred Regardless, I need to extract a human readable concise error from a mess of a log file. There is no possibility to display a log file. I don't understand your comment about editors. There are no editors involved.

@SeanAllred Neither grep, not an editor is involved. Think of something similar to LaTeXiT, which makes it necessary to report readable errors to the user.

comment Simplest way to extract errors from log files
Do you have any comments on question 1., i.e. is the ! a reliable indicator that something went wrong? I'm going to try reading from the ! line up to the next empty line as an imperfect but useful solution, with some limitation on the number of lines just in case that empty line is missing.

comment Simplest way to extract errors from log files
In my application, one-line math-mode snippers are being auto-converted to vector graphics and then used in another software (similar to LaTeXiT). Given the application and workflow, showing the full log file, with all the irrelevant part (most of it) is counterproductive (although I understand that it's hard to see why this is the case without having used the application). So I still need to extract the errors, or perhaps only the very first error. Currently I am only extracting a single line (with the !), which is still better than the full log. But I'm hoping to do a little better.

@Peter Thanks, just wanted to prevent any bad reactions, but TeX.SE is quite a bit friendlier than many other SE sites :-)
