Latexmk, version 4.81, 6 Nov 2023 --------------------------------- Latexmk completely automates the process of generating a LaTeX document. Essentially, it is a highly specialized cousin of the general make utility. 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, including repeated running of the programs until cross references etc are resolved. Latexmk can also be set to run continuously with a previewer; the latex program, etc, are rerun whenever one of the source files is modified. Latexmk automatically determines file dependencies from the LaTeX .fls, .log, and .aux files. It features: a fully reliable algorithm for deciding how many times to run latex and related programs, automatic detection of dependent files, the ability to generate pdf files using pdflatex or via dvi or postscript files, and the continuous-preview mode. For bibliographies, the current version supports biber as well as the traditional bibtex. Which of bibtex or biber to use is determined automatically. Please read the man page (or the corresponding text or pdf file) for details of what latexmk does and what all the features are. A list of available command-line options is available by running 'latexmk --help'. Latexmk is a perl script. It is licensed under the GNU General Public License v. 2.

latexmk – Fully automated LaTeX document generation
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 the “preview continuous mode”, where the script 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 offer a display of the document’s latest state.
