Compilation without Log File

Postby breadontoast on Mon Oct 31st, 2011

Hi,

I want like to compile a *.tex file to a PDF without(!) the log file. Is it possible to tell PDFLaTeX it should not create it?

As far as I know not on TeX Live. you can find out on the command line by invoking the help for the compiler engine.
Code: Select all  •  Open in writeLaTeX
latex -help

This yields every possible command line option that you can give to the compiler to influence its behaviour during the compilation process.

But even if, since the log value contains extremely valuable information about the complete compilation process, it is far from being advisable to turn off its generating.
