 From url:




After unzip;untar;grep -e 'Parsing error' got hits in:


but code at both hits indicated the program was complaining
because of a missing style sheet:

     StyleSheet *sheet = parser.parseStyleSheet();
     if (!sheet) {
       lua_pushfstring(L, "Parsing error at %d", parser.parsePosition());
       return 2;

Shouldn't the pdftoipe program have supplied that style sheet
if ipe expects it?
