Looking to generate a PDF using
latexmk. The LaTeX document, which is automatically generated from a web-based application, will include many large images, Tikz graphics, table of contents, multiple indices, etc.
The default call to
latexmk will include the images in each run of
pdflatex. To increase performance, it was advised to use
latexmk program cannot determine whether the next run of
pdflatex will be the last run required to produce a finished document.
The difference, with a simple test, was 10 seconds without
-draftmode and 0.9 seconds with using
-draftmode: an order of magnitude, which is quite significant.
How can you determine the exact number of
pdflatex runs that are required to produce a PDF document so that calls to
pdflatex, except the final call, can use
- It might be possible to pass in a number that equals the number of runs required. I'd rather not use this approach as dynamic determination is ideal.
- Perform an extra run of
pdflatexat the end, which is not in
