LaTeX Question

Is there a LaTeX command that will log to the output/error console?

I have created a LaTeX

\todo{}
command which outputs todo notes in the margin:

\newcommand\todo[1]{\marginpar{#1}}


However, I'd really like to output a list of all my todo notes to the output console. I had written a trivial python script to parse .tex files to do so, but have since switched to using latexmk to handle recompilation. My script doesn't really handle using
\includeonly
either.

Can I write straight into the LaTeX console output from within latex?

Answer

Yes -- try \typeout{message}.
