LaTeX-Mk is a collection of Makefile fragments and shell scripts for
managing small to large sized LaTeX projects. The typical LaTeX-Mk
input file is simply a series of variable definitions in a Makefile
for the project. After creating a simple Makefile the user can easily
perform all required steps to do such tasks as: preview the document,
print the document, or produce a PDF file. LaTeX-Mk will keep track
of files that have changed and how to run the various programs that
are needed to produce the output.
