# How to create two PDFoutput from the same source

I have a very long source file. I would like to prepare from this source two PDF files:

1. PDF contains all of the source file

2. PDF containing only a few, marked earlier parts of the source file.

How I should mark source file and how prepare main file in LateX, to achieve point 2?

Do you want to keep the same numbering for the second file as for the first? For instance, if in the second file you only have the figures 1, 5 and 10 do you want them to appear as 1, 5 and 10 or 1, 2 and 3 in the second file? Same question for the page numbers, tables, equations etc. – Ludovic C. Jul 10 '13 at 9:53
Ludowic C. : No, I dont want to keep the same numbering. I want to have own numbering in the second. – Ama Jul 10 '13 at 9:57
BTW: Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. – karlkoeller Jul 10 '13 at 9:58
Have a look at Producing different versions of a document which should be what you want. – Martin Scharrer Jul 10 '13 at 10:04

In your long TeX input file (your source), use \ifsecret ... \fi to sandwich the secret parts that you want to either include or exclude. The common parts will always be included so don't sandwich them.

% filename.tex
\documentclass[preview,border=12pt]{standalone}
\newif\ifsecret
\begin{document}
common 1

\ifsecret
I have a top secret message here.
\fi

common 2
\end{document}


Make a batch file as follows.

pdflatex -jobname=secret-included "\AtBeginDocument{\secrettrue} \input{filename}"
pdflatex -jobname=secret-excluded "\AtBeginDocument{\secretfalse} \input{filename}"


% compile with pdflatex -shell-escape

\documentclass[preview,border=12pt]{standalone}
\usepackage{filecontents}

\begin{filecontents*}{filename.tex}
\documentclass[preview,border=12pt]{standalone}
\newif\ifsecret
\begin{document}
common 1

\ifsecret
I have a top secret message here.
\fi

common 2
\end{document}
\end{filecontents*}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\immediate\write18{\unexpanded{pdflatex -jobname=secret-included "\AtBeginDocument{\secrettrue} \input{filename}"}}
\immediate\write18{\unexpanded{pdflatex -jobname=secret-excluded "\AtBeginDocument{\secretfalse} \input{filename}"}}
Done, secret-included.pdf and secret-excluded.pdf have been generated!

\fbox{\includegraphics[width=.5\linewidth]{secret-included}}%
\fbox{\includegraphics[width=.5\linewidth]{secret-excluded}}
\end{document}

I want include in 2 only small part of source file. In your example: only text between \ifsecret .... \fi – Ama Jul 10 '13 at 14:29
@Ama: I cannot parse your sentences. Please use standardized English grammar. – kiss my armpit Jul 10 '13 at 14:36
@StiffJokes: I suppose @ama wants a kind-of only-secrets.pdf document; a file with only the secrets. – Rmano Dec 17 '13 at 17:33
@Romano - yes, I want only-secrets.pdf document. Can you help me? – Ama Jan 17 '14 at 10:49
