Hello All,

The following minimal example compiles fine if I run Xelatex in
TexShop. However, if I run

    xelatex filename.tex

from command line then I get an error and no pdf file is produced. Can
someone please help me understand what is happening?

I ran

    which xelatex

at the command line to find which xelatex is being called. It outputs:


The minimal example is:



\setlength{\parskip}{2ex plus 0.5ex minus 0.1ex}



This works when typeset from TexShop. However, if I typeset using the
xelatex command at the command line, I get an error.

trying acc\'{e}nted characters.


Thanks in advance for your help.
