# place this file with the name 'pygmentize' somewhere on your

# executed and can act as a wrapper around the 'real' pygmentize.
# This script computes a hash-value (md5sum) of the input file
# from minted and caches the output of pygmentize.
# The working directory is used to store the cached files (it's an ugly hack...)
# The real pygmentize command, may need customization to work on your system.
# Use 'whereis pygmentize' to found the location on your system.
# find the output file used by minted
