I have two files, say
file1.tex is the first of a series of files, and it begins with counters (say chapter 1 for instance, although my counters are not used for chapters). Then at the end of
file1, the counter for chapters is at say 7 ; I want to carry the value of the counter to
file2.tex so that I can use a counter which will have the value 7 in
file2.tex. In this way I could possibly carry on the counter in
file2.tex to a counter in some
file3.tex and so on.
I assume I would need to compile
file1.tex first, and then
file2.tex, and then
file3.tex... of course.
Is that possible? And if so, how? I couldn't think of anything.
