       findhyph - find words hyphenated by TeX in a document


       Copy findhyph or findhyph.bat (depending on OS used) to a directory included in system
       PATH. Perl interpreter is required to be in "/usr/bin/" for Unix-like systems or in PATH
       when using findhyph.bat.


       findhyph [options] foo.log


       To use this program:

       1)  set "\tracingparagraphs=1" in a TeX document foo.tex and run:

       2)  tex foo.tex

       3)  findhyph [options] foo.log

       If you are setting "\looseness=<N>" to optimize paragraphs, you need to pass that
       information to the file foo.log in a form "@looseness=<N>" (on a separate line). You can
       use a macro like "\def\setlooseness#1{\looseness=#1 \immediate\write-1{@looseness=#1}}"
       for this purpose. If the paragraph contains material in display math mode, you need to use
       the macro in all split parts of the paragraph.


       -c  display hyphenated words in context

       -f  display font selectors and other strings starting with a backslash character

       -v  display program version

       -p  generate file containing information about one-letter prepositions and conjunctions
           left at the end of line

           use prepositions/conjunctions listed in STRING instead of default list of prepositions
           and conjunctions "kKsSvVzZoOuUiIA" used for Slovak and Czech language


           List of hyphenated words. All punctuation characters, parentheses and other character
           immediately preceding or following displayed words are included in this list. TeX
           constructs which are too difficult to display ("\hbox{}", "\mark{}" etc.) are shown as
           "[]". Math mode is indicated by "$" sign.

           Page numbers in square brackets refer to LOG file and may occasionally differ from the
           typeset document. The reason is that TeX may need to break more paragraphs than it
           would eventually fit on the page in order to find a page break.

           Words hyphenated in footnotes are listed before the words hyphenated in the paragraph
           in which the footnote is referenced.

           List of prepositions if option -p is used.


       1.0 (2001-04-08)

       ·   public release

       2.0 (2009-08-10)

       ·   fixes in line breaks detection algorithm; support for the third pass of line breaking
           algorithm in TeX (positive \emergencystretch); support for discretionary breaks in the
           first pass

       ·   page number detection improved (recognized negative page numbers, compound page
           numbers when "\count1" to "\count9" registers are non-zero and "[nn{mapfile}]",
           "[nn<picture>]" and "[nn<newline>" formats used by pdfTeX; false page number detection
           should be much more rare)

       ·   configurable list of prepositions and conjunctions

       ·   hyphenated words can be displayed in context

       ·   suggestions and testing by Pavel Striz

       3.0 (2012-02-01)

       ·   fixed a bug when total paragraph demerits are negative

       ·   "\looseness" setting is now taken into account (thanks to Karel Horak for identifying
           the issue)

       3.1 (2012-11-03)

       ·   fixed displaying of hyphenated ligatures (bug reported by Karel Horak)

       3.2 (2012-11-21)

       ·   improved example definition of the "\setlooseness" macro (thanks to Karl Berry)

       3.3 (2013-06-18)

       ·   fixed the manual page as suggested by Eric S. Raymond
