automultiplechoice.dtx fails to create sty file

Added by Hilmar Preusse 12 months ago

Recently we updated to TL 2018 in Debian unstable. Since then the generation of the automultiplechoice.sty from automultiplechoice.dtx fails:

********************************************************
* No Configuration file found, using default settings. *
********************************************************

)

Generating file(s) ./automultiplechoice.sty 

Processing file automultiplechoice.dtx (package) -> automultiplechoice.sty
! Undefined control sequence.
\GenericError  ...                                
                                                    #4  \errhelp \@err@     ...

                                                  ^^M

OK, entering \scrollmode...

This has worked in TL 2017 and I guess it is not a failure of TL. I tried the version from git too, but the problem was not solved. Do you have a fast idea how to solve it? Thanks!

Thanks for the report. This comes from the Japanese characters in the dtx file (see https://github.com/latex3/latex2e/issues/34).
This should be fixed with git:8a99378.

OK, I've seen that LaTeX bug, but it was simply closed and not connected to a commit. The git id I found neither in your repo nor in the LaTeX repo. Could you give a pointer? Thanks!
