Section B.2. Warnings and informational messages

B.2. Warnings and informational messages

While error messages make LATEX stop and wait for user input, warning messages are simply displayed on the terminal and in the transcript file and processing continues. If applicable, LATEX also shows the source line number that triggered the warning. The warnings are prefixed by “LaTeX Warning:” or “LaTeX Font Warning:” if they are issued by the core LATEX code. Otherwise, they identify the issuing package or class by starting with “Package <name> Warning:” or “Class <name> Warning:”, respectively. TEX warnings, such as “Overfull...”, have no standard prefix string.

In addition to warnings, LATEX writes informational messages to the transcript file without displaying this information on the terminal. To better distinguish between informational and warning messages, warnings are shown in blue in the following alphabetical listing.
