Weird @filelist behaviour when loading cls file #857

The @filelist macro seems to be empty when reading in a class file. Consider the following situation:

filelist.tex contains:

  The file list inside of the cls file was `\filelistclass'. 

filelistclass.cls contains:


filelistclass.cls.ltxml contains:

InputDefinitions('filelistclass', type => 'cls', noltxml => 1, withoptions => 1);

When running this with pdflatex filelist.tex we get
The file list inside of the cls file was ‘filelistclass.cls’.
indicating that \@filelist is filelistclass.cls.

When running this with latexml filelist.tex we instead get

<p>The file list inside of the cls file was ‘’.</p>

indicating that \@filelist is empty.

I am working on a fix for this, will make a pull request in a bit.

Set @FileList macro before reading file (fixes #857)

When loading a file through `InputDefinitions`, the @FileList macro was
only set after the file has finished loading. This results in the macro
being empty during the processing of a file.

This commit fixes the issue by setting the @FileList macro before
loading of the file. Furthermore, it adds a testcase to prevent this bug
from reappearing in the future.
