Say, my .tex files are organized like this ~/Projects/proj_name/articles.tex.

After compiling with LaTeX Suite, I want the output PDF file to be proj_name.pdf instead of articles.pdf. Since I have several projects in ~/Projects/ I want a systematic configuration in .vimrc.

Here is my current solution

let g:Tex_CompileRule_pdf='pdflatex -interaction=nonstopmode -jobname=%:p:h:t $*'

This method is not satisfying since the name of .aux and .bbl are also changed to proj_name while Vim-LaTeX is still looking for articles.aux.

My question is, is there any other methods for doing this?

You may use this command :

:!pdflatex articles.tex && mv articles.pdf proj_name.pdf

but you have to change manually the command for each case.
