 Stepan Kasal 2007-05-30 12:39:45 EDT Description of problem: If \show or \showthe is used in a source, tex (generally: {,pdf}{,e,la}tex) exits with exit code 1, not 0. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): tetex-3.0-34.fc6 How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: cat >foo.tex \show\rm foo \bye ^D tex -interaction=nonstopmode foo echo \$? Actual results: iexit code is 1 Expected results: exit code 0 Jindrich Novy 2007-06-05 04:31:17 EDT The tex ends up with exit code 1 when it encounters an error during processing of a source file to notify the batch job above it that it shouldn't expect a valid output. Are you sure you have all the macros properly defined? Stepan Kasal 2007-06-06 09:08:49 EDT Jindrich Novy asked an interesting irrelevant question: > Are you sure you have all the macros properly defined? Well, when I first experienced the bug, I was using LaTeX. So I cannot guarantee that "all the macros" there were properly defined. But the stripped down reproducer above uses only plain.tex, which is the most reviewed and most debugged source file in the whole Fedora, I guess.
