Automatic Postscript and PDF document preperation using LaTeX and Make

Maintains an up-to-date postscript and pdf version of a latex document which contains figures and plots in the xfig/transfig pslatex format (split postscript and latex).

The split postscript/latex files .pstex and .pstex_t are generated through the program fig2dev for figures (.fig) and gpt2dev (a front-end to gnuplot) for gnuplot files (.gpt)

Included postscript files are converted to pdf format with ps2pdf.

Pictures in gif, jpeg, png and pgm format are converted to eps and pdf files for inclusion using convert and epstopdf.

The pdf version of the document is created from the original LaTeX source using pdfLaTeX.
