    Ok, I try to do what you say:




    with two files named cap1.tex and cap2.tex. When I process the main.tex
    appears the prompt \chap=  and.... what it is supposed I should type. I
    tried with the names cap1,cap2, etc.and then it comes out a message
    "!undefined control sequence" about the input line
    \ifthenelse{\equal{\chaps}{all}}{}{\includeonly{\chaps}}. Do you know what
