Description matti aarnio 2001-03-12 17:23:14 UTC

Attached diff shows how I solved problems caused by  pdfjadetex output
being redirected to  INFILE.out  file - which for me resulted all of
that heading text to be prepended (in PDF form) to the generated PDF file.

Comment 2 matti aarnio 2001-03-12 17:59:45 UTC
The   INFILE.out   is used by  (pdf)(jade)TeX  during the TOC construction,
and the way the original script is done, will result in chaos and mayhem...

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2001-03-12 18:03:49 UTC
An alternative fix, then, would be to redirect to ${SGML_FILE_NAME}.tmp 
instead of .out.  Is that a better fix, do you think?

Comment 4 matti aarnio 2001-03-12 18:10:46 UTC
Yes, even though it feels somewhat like TeX might use that name too..
