John Collins sub­mit­ted an up­date to the la­texmk pack­age. Ver­sion: 4.55 2018-01-17 Li­cense: gpl2 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Fully au­to­mated LaTeX doc­u­ment gen­er­a­tion An­nounce­ment text:
1. Cor­rect bug that some vari­ables weren't de­fined un­der msys. 2. Com­pen­sate for prob­lems caused by time off­set be­tween sys­tem time on sys­tem run­ning la­texmk and file times on re­mote file sys­tem. (Th­ese caused trou­ble for doc­u­ments that both are com­piled un­der MiKTeX and use biber.) 3. Al­low op­tional time­out in pvc mode af­ter a pe­riod of in­ac­tiv­ity. (See doc­u­menta tion for -pvc­time­out op­tion.)

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.
