TREX

Have you ever been annoyed by the endless lasting stream of warnings and errors of pdflatex? Have you ever been annoyed by the inconsistent labelling of the erroneous line? Trex is the solution for commandline pdflatex compilation.

Usage

If you have only one tex file in the current dir then you can simply do:

trex view

to compile and view the generated pdf. If there are multiple files trex will prompt for the correct one.

Installation

Just put trex in your executable path, for instance /usr/local/bin.

Executable

Usage:
   trex [options] [view|compile|tex|clean]
   For help use: trex -h

Options:
   -h, --help          Displays help message
   -v, --version       Display the version, then exit
   -q, --quiet         Output as little as possible, overrides verbose
   -V, --verbose       Output lists all errors, overrides quiet
   --figures           Set the figures dir, default is './figures'
   --hack              Open this script for direct changes in the sources

Why trex?

ratex was too long.

Why ratex?

Dunno, maybe because ruby is japanese? (no offense guys, I don't speak chinese either).

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
