I'm dealing with a repository containing tex files, toc files, idx files and some other files.

As far as I know, toc and idx files are normally generated by pdflatex.

In this repository, pdftex is used for build. pdflatex seemingly doesn't work. If I delete toc or idx files, pdftex won't work as well.

How do I generate toc and idx files? The origins of the repository are unclear; I'd have to message a lot of people to get to the roots of the build, and it would likely take a lot of time.

There are also iss, sec, fig, ref files for each tex chapter file; I guess those should be generated too.

jsCould you elaborate on 'pdflatex seemingly doesn't work'? What do you expect and what happens instead?23:53:43
js.toc files are generated by pdflatex from my own experience, but the same should hold true for idx files (though they may need additional post processing to be consumed again by *latex). Have not heard of the others yet, but they do seem to be related to lists.23:55:35

Seems like some sort of infinite recursion is going on there. Not sure whether this actually has to do anything with generated files at all

01:18:12
jsPerhaps you can try and track down the original pdflatex and package versions used? It may just be relying on some outdated behaviour, causing it to fail with current stuff01:19:14
akater I'd rather chase the guy who made indices and toc. 01:35:04

DavidI've read that there is a bug with pdfx in texlive 2021. Does anybody here use another package for producing PDF/A documents? 18:59:06
