following up on issue 491
(http://code.google.com/p/texworks/issues/detail?id=491) about broken
file path detection in the latexError.js script - maybe some people here
can help by providing the results of some of the test cases mentioned there.


Original post:

In order to resolve this satisfactorily across platforms, could someone post the error logs produced by MiKTeX & TeXLive on Windows as well as MacTeX on the Mac for the following situations:

 * Error in a file with a short name (e.g., 'test.tex')
 * Error in a file with a long name (too long for a single line) (e.g., 'a-very-very-long-file-name-to-ensure-latex-error-messages-are-broken-across-lines.tex')
 * Error in a file with spaces (e.g., 'test file.tex')
 * Error in a file with quotation marks (e.g., 'test "file".tex')
 * Error in a file with contained braces (e.g., 'test (file).tex')

Minimal sample file:
