[Tex/LaTex] Tools for automating document compilation


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?

Best Answer

Latexmk is one possibility, although I've never used it myself.
