texlogsieve reads a LaTeX log file (or the standard input if no file is specified), filters out less relevant messages, and displays a summary report. It is a texlua script, similar in spirit to tools such as texfot, texloganalyser, rubber-info, textlog_extract, texlogparser, and others. Highlights: Two reports: the most important messages from the log file followed by a summary of repeated messages, undefined references etc.; The program goes to great lengths to correctly handle TeX line wrapping and does a much better job at that than existing tools; Multiline messages are treated as a single entity; Several options to control which messages should be filtered out; No messages are accidentally removed; The summary report is currently simple, but useful.
