This pack­age has been up­dated on tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your fa­vorite mir­ror. Thanks, Jim Hef­feron Saint Michael's Col­lege .......................................................................... The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor: Name of con­tri­bu­tion: la­texmk Author's name: John Collins Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /sup­port/la­texmk Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Fully au­to­mated LaTeX doc­u­ment gen­er­a­tion pro­gram Li­cense type: gpl An­nounce­ment text:
La­texmk com­pletely au­to­mates the pro­cess of gen­er­at­ing a LaTeX doc­u­ment. Given the source files for a doc­u­ment, la­texmk is­sues the ap­pro­pri­ate se­quence of com­mands to gen­er­ate a .dvi, .ps, .pdf or hard­copy ver­sion of the doc­u­ment. An im­por­tant fea­ture is its "pre­view con­tin­u­ous mode", where it watches all of the source files (pri­mary file and in­cluded TeX and graph­ics files), and re­runs LaTeX etc when­ever a source file has changed. Thus a pre­viewer can have an up­dated dis­play when­ever the source files change. The new ver­sion (4.01) has im­por­tant im­prove­ments over the pre­vi­ous re­leased ver­sion (3.07a): 1. A new method of de­tect­ing when a new run of la­tex is re­quired. This deals ro­bustly with cer­tain macro pack­age's that gen­er­ate and then read in the gen­er­ated files on a sub­se­quent run of la­tex/pdfla­tex. 2. Much bet­ter con­fig­ura­bil­ity of the ex­ter­nal com­mands in­voked by la­texmk. 3. In­dex­ing works with pack­age's multind, and in­dex, as well as makeidx. 4. Many bug fixes and smaller im­prove­ments in re­sponse to user re­quests.

la­texmk – Fully au­to­mated doc­u­ment gen­er­a­tion

La­texmk com­pletely au­to­mates the pro­cess of gen­er­at­ing a doc­u­ment. Given the source files for a doc­u­ment, la­texmk is­sues the ap­pro­pri­ate se­quence of com­mands to gen­er­ate a .dvi, .ps, .pdf or hard­copy ver­sion of the doc­u­ment.

An im­por­tant fea­ture is the “pre­view con­tin­u­ous mode”, where the script watches all of the source files (pri­mary file and in­cluded and graph­ics files), and re­runs , etc., when­ever a source file has changed. Thus a pre­viewer can of­fer a dis­play of the doc­u­ment’s lat­est state.
