Summary description: LaTeX compilation script for Linux (written in Bash)
License type: gpl

Announcement text given by the contribution's author:
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
This script allows to centralize the many program calls necessary to 
completely compile a LaTeX document. In particular, the multiple calls 
of the latex command necessary in order to create a table of contents, a 
bibliography or an index are carried out automatically. Are also managed 
the calls of the programs bibtex and makeindex as well as the vizualisation 
of the resulting file (in DVI, PostScript or PDF format) by calling an 
external program.
It is possible to stress characters in documents which use the \input and 
\include commands to make references to some external files, and that in a 
transparent way by compiling only the main source file.
Available in English and French languages.
