shlatex – LaTeX compilation script for Linux (written in Bash)
This script permits centralization of the many program calls necessary to completely compile a LaTeX document. In particular, the multiple calls of the LaTeX command necessary in order to create a table of contents, a bibliography or an index are carried out automatically. Are also managed the calls of the programs BibTeX and makeindex as well as the vizualisation of the resulting file (in DVI, PostScript or PDF format) by calling an external program. It is possible to stress characters in documents wich use the \input and \include commands to make references to some external files, and that in a transparent way by compiling only the main source file. Available in English and French languages.
