CTAN upload: runtex
A Win32 program(me) that tries to guess the number of times - if you neglected to tell it how often - [pdf][e][La]TeX should be executed and which other utilities - currently makeindex, xindy, MetaPost, MetaFont, and BibTeX - if at all are run after the first TeX run. Temporary files will be deleted if nothing went wrong and you told it to. Not all the functionality got tested (don't use BibTeX or glossaries currently) but it ought to work if I haven't overlooked any bugs.
In addition, the source code is available as /support/runtex/runtex_src.zip Announcement text:
This is the ANSI/POSIX C source code for runtex. As I use MinGW I don't know if the makefile does anything useful if run with MSVC, but I have my doubts. It shouldn't take too much effort to port it to unix if one wants to, but some ANSI/POSIX functions were defined differently by MS so it won't compile out of the box, sorry.
Thanks for the upload. Rainer Schöpf
runtex – Windows program to run TeX variant and various utils as needed
A Win32 program(me) that tries to guess the number of times— if you neglected to tell it how often—[pdf][e][La]TeX should be executed and which other utilities—currently makeindex, xindy, METAPOST, METAFONT, and BibTeX—if at all are run after the first TeX run. You can ask it to delete temporary files if nothing went wrong.
