I'm Edd. I'm a Computer Science graduate from the University of Bath, currently working as a software developer at Ocado, in Hatfield, UK. I've experience working in a number of industries, including military and civil engineering, and working on very different types of project.

I reguarly code in C, C++ and Objective-C, and have experience using Python, Java, PHP and Ada as well as the basics such as Bash-scripting. I'm keen to learn C# and the .Net framework in the near future. I'm happy to work with html and XML, and I typeset the vast majority of my university work using LaTeX.

Outside of work, I'm a keen photographer. I'm a Canon user, shooting with a 5D. I'm interested in landscapes and cityscapes, as well as bits of sports photography. I'm wanting to learn more about how I can use flash to enhance my photos.

comment How do I choose which sections to compile from a LaTeX document?
I've just checked it does work for the second scenario, and it does, so I've edited my answer accordingly.

comment Is there any way to build a LaTeX document from a parent directory?
I'm using the --output-directory flags to get the output into the Build directory already; this is being accepted for effectively confirming that there's no cleaner way to do it, and for the advice about using the cd ... && ... form.

comment Is there any way to build a LaTeX document from a parent directory?
@Charles Stewart It's not that there's anything wrong with it, per se, I just wanted to make sure it was as good as it could be. This just looks a bit dodgy because it's not repeated a few times across the Makefil (ensure everything is properly built and LaTeX run enough times etc). I guess I was hoping there was a way to make, for example latex Report/report.tex work, when report.tex included other files in the Report/ directory. I considered recursive make, but then the LaTeX make would still have to reference files in the Project/Code directory.

@Andrew Stacey That's it. I'm not so fussed about the pdf being put in the /Report/Build directory with everything else (which is put there using the -build-directory=Build/ argument), as I can copy that relatively cleanly.
