# [Tex/LaTex] Tools for automating document compilation

automationbig-listcompilingmakefiletools

A lot of people write makefiles that say something like

paper.pdf: paper.tex
pdflatex paper
bibtex paper
pdflatex paper
pdflatex paper


To handle re-running TeX to get new/changed references and so forth. Is there a better way to do this?
