ant-worker-tasks – Apache ANT Tasks for TeX and PDF
Apache ANT is the Java equivalence of Unix make. I.e., it is a tool to trigger an action when a file has been changed, e.g., to create a PDF file when the corresponding TeX file changed. This package provides ANT actions for TeX and PDF documents. They will call TeX and related utilities when document source files have been changed. Furthermore actions are provided that can manipulate PDF files - they can be merged, cropped, etc.
