################
### texBuild ###
################
Helper file to automate the compilation of both .otl (through otl2latex) and
.tex files
### For .tex files ###
1. Checks weather you have a bibliography included in the .tex file
2. Compiles the appropriate number of times and includes bibtex in the
compilation
### For .otl files ###
Helper file to expedite the use of otl2latex for building presentations in
Beamer. It performs the following tasks:
1. Checks for the presence of four spaces instead of actual tabs in the file.
This will generate a warning and stop the script.
2. Allows the user to subset the presentation by inserting the strings
'@start@' and '@end@' (on their own lines) at the beginning and end of a block
of the OTL the user wants to compile. This allows for quickly compiling small
portions of the presentation without having to build the entire thing. The
presentation built is called temp.otl, temp.tex and temp.pdf.
3. Compiles the presentation appropriately (i.e. executes pdflatex the correct
number of times) and deletes out all the temporary files created by Beamer.
It only leaves behind the .otl, .tex and .pdf.
Usage:
texbuild file.otl
texbuild file.tex [-minted]
If -minted added, then runs the appropriate command to compile LaTeX
documents that make use of the minted packaged for code-syntax
highlighting
