texvc sends dvips output into the webserver error log
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: cbm.wikipedia

On systems where dvips generates output by default, the dvips output that comes from texvc will show up in apache error logs. For example, I checked my log, and it has things like this:

This is dvips(k) 5.96.1 Copyright 2007 Radical Eye Software (
' TeX output 2007.08.13:1013' ->

Adding the -q option to dvips in the first line of should fix this.

Version: 1.11.x
Severity: enhancement

dvipng is used preferentially if it's present, and appears to give clean output. Added -q option to dvips when it is used.
