CTAN Update: autolatex 5.3

Date: October 8, 2007 12:32:20 AM CEST
On Sat, 6 Oct 2007, Stephane Galland submitted an update to the autolatex package. AutoLaTeX is a set of GNU Make and Perl scripts that may be used to compile LaTeX projects. AutoLaTeX automates the compilation process by calling (pdf)latex and bibtex as they are required. It supports pdflatex, latex, dvips, epstopdf and bibtex. AutoLaTeX also provides a powerful feature for automatic generation of the figures that are included in the LaTeX project: for several figure sources (xfig, dia, umbrello, png, svg, xmi...) AutoLaTeX is able to generate the appropriate PDF picture. AutoLaTeX also supports pstex format generation (from xfig and gnuplot for example). The use of AutoLaTeX on the command line is similar to GNU Make. AutoLaTeX should be called with several targets to run.
