CTAN update: xpdfopen
pdfopen is a program which can be used to both start a new instance of a PDF viewer program as well as to instruct that program to reload the PDF file. This is particularly useful if pdfopen is called automatically whenever tex is (re-)run. This version has an updated pdfopen and pdfclose that work with Adobe Reader 5, 7, 8 and 9 as well as xpdf.
