chktex Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies chktex-1.7.8.tar.gz contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).


ChkTeX is a tool to check for common errors in LaTeX files. It also supports checking CWEB files (uses a perl5 script). It is highly customizable allowing you turn off any warnings you don't like, as well as add your own warnings. It works easily with Emacs and AUCTeX, but should also be easy to interface with other editors. If you have interfaced ChkTeX with another editor, please contribute how you did it.

It is important to remember that ChkTeX is only intended as a guide to fixing faults. It is by no means always correct. This means that correct LaTeX code may produce errors in ChkTeX, and vice versa: incorrect LaTeX code may pass silently through. If you have ideas for new warnings or ways in which current warnings could be improved, please report them on the bug tracker.
