As I'm still VERY new to Tex I have been using TexMaker (niavely) to generate my pdf's. I have a doc I have been working on for some time that someone else wants to manually generate with my tex files on a remote computer. They asked me what command I used to created the document. How do I find the command that TexMaker would run if I was just to use command line options (and not TexMaker)? I looked in the log file that is generated but nothing really jumped out at me.
If you are using LaTeX (and not TeX) you probable are using
pdflatex to generate your PDF (
latex will generate a DVI file), e.g.
$ pdflatex your_doc.tex
TexMaker probable use some flags as
-interaction nonstopmode. For information about the this and others flags
$ man pdflatex
If the remote machine have PERL installed I suggest that you use
latexmk since it will compile your document the number of times it need to properly generate the PDF (cross-reference need that the document be compiled at least two times). E.g.,
$ latexmk -pdf your_doc.tex
