This package has been updated on tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your favorite mirror. Thanks, Jim Hefferon Saint Michael's College .......................................................................... The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: latexmk Author's name: John Collins Location on CTAN: /support/latexmk Summary description: Fully automated LaTeX document generation program License type: gpl Announcement text:
Latexmk completely automates the process of generating a LaTeX document. Given the source files for a document, latexmk issues the appropriate sequence of commands to generate a .dvi, .ps, .pdf or hardcopy version of the document. An important feature is its "preview continuous mode", where it watches all of the source files (primary file and included TeX and graphics files), and reruns LaTeX etc whenever a source file has changed. Thus a previewer can have an updated display whenever the source files change. The new version (4.01) has important improvements over the previous released version (3.07a): 1. A new method of detecting when a new run of latex is required. This deals robustly with certain macro package's that generate and then read in the generated files on a subsequent run of latex/pdflatex. 2. Much better configurability of the external commands invoked by latexmk. 3. Indexing works with package's multind, and index, as well as makeidx. 4. Many bug fixes and smaller improvements in response to user requests.

latexmk – Fully automated document generation

Latexmk completely automates the process of generating a document. Given the source files for a document, latexmk issues the appropriate sequence of commands to generate a .dvi, .ps, .pdf or hardcopy version of the document.

An important feature is the “preview continuous mode”, where the script watches all of the source files (primary file and included and graphics files), and reruns , etc., whenever a source file has changed. Thus a previewer can offer a display of the document’s latest state.
