The files in this directory provide suggestions for customizing an
initialization file ("rc file") for latexmk. See the latexmk
documentation for general information on its initialization files.
Not only do these files provide solutions to particular problems, but
they can be also used as inspiration for solutions to other cases.
1. The examples are not complete rc files, but contain fragments that
you can copy to one of your .latexmkrc/latexmkrc files.
2. These examples are developed by particular users to solve
particular problems. You may have to customize them for your own
needs. So read the comments carefully, and understand how the
examples are working.
3. Another source of examples is in Herb Schulz's distribution of
TexShop, at http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2, for some further
examples. (The file Latexmk321jTeXShop.zip is the one you want.)
It shows how to use glossaries, epstopdf, pdftricks and pst-pdf.
4. I have generally arranged for filenames to be quoted on command
system( "makeindex -o \"$_.lnd\" \"$_.ldx\"" );
In many cases the quotes may be omitted, as in
system( "makeindex -o $_.lnd $_.ldx" );
But it is preferable to leave the quotes in, since they provide
safety against special characters in filenames. The double quotes
appear not to cause problems in all situations that I have tried.
