A new ver­sion of la­texmk has been in­stalled on tug.ctan.org and will make its way through the mir­ror­ing pro­cess in the next day or two. Thanks for the con­tri­bu­tion, Jim Hef­feron ftp­maint at tug.ctan.org ======================================================= 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: Au­to­mated run­ning of la­tex and re­lated pro­grams ("la­tex make") Li­cense type: gpl An­nounce­ment text given by the con­tri­bu­tion's au­thor: - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- 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 cur­rent ver­sion (3.04) has many im­prove­ments over pre­vi­ous ver­sions. Apart from bug fixes: 1. The method for de­ter­min­ing how many times to re­run la­tex is now cor­rect in all nor­mal sit­u­a­tions. 2. The de­ter­mi­na­tion of the de­pen­den­cies is greatly im­proved. 3. Pdf files can be made. 4. Im­prove­ments to cor­re­spond to cur­rent ver­sions of LaTeX and as­so­ci­ated soft­ware have been made. 5. Li­cense is GPL (with agree­ment of pre­vi­ous au­thors). Pre­vi­ous ver­sion (v. 2) is in a sub­di­rec­tory. - ----------------------------------------------------------------------

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.
