latex-make – Easy compiling of complex (and simple) documents

This package provides several tools that aim to simplify the compilation of documents:

  • .mk: a Makefile snippet to help compiling documents in DVI, PDF, PS, … format. Dependencies are automatically tracked: one should be able to compile documents with a one-line Makefile containing 'include .mk'. Complex documents (with multiple bibliographies, indexes, glossaries, …) should be correctly managed.
  • figlatex.sty: a package to easily insert xfig figures (with \includegraphics{file.fig}). It can interact with .mk so that the latter automatically invokes transfig if needed.
  • And various helper tools for .mk

This package requires GNUmake (>= 3.81).
