CTAN update: Auto

Date: February 23, 2016 1:52:16 PM CET
Stéphane Galland submitted an update to the AutoLaTeX package. Version number: 39.1 License type: gpl2 Summary description: Automate compilation of large scale LaTeX projects Announcement text:
The two command lines "--gloss" and "--nogloss" that are controlling the activation of the glossary generation were not added in the previous version as stated in the documentation. These options are added in version 39.1. pdflatex does not produce a warning message in the log related to invalid page numbers in the table-of-content (see issue 101 on the AutoLaTeX developer website). The command line '--postcompilationruns' enables the user of AutoLateX to specify the minimal number of runs of pdflatex to be executed during the last execution stage. This gives a simple solution to the issue without changing the code of pdflatex.

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Erik Braun

Auto – Automate compilation of large scale projects

Auto is a set of GNU Make and Perl scripts that may be used to compile projects. Auto automates the compilation process by calling (pdf) and as they are required. It supports pdf, , dvips, epstopdf and . Auto also provides a powerfull feature for automatic generation of the figures that are included in the project: for several figure sources (xfig, dia, umbrello, png, svg, xmi...) Auto is able to generate the appropriate PDF picture. Auto also supports pstex format (from xfig and gnuplot for example) and dot format (from the Graphviz package).

The use of Auto on the command line is similar to GNU Make. Auto should be called with several targets to run.
