A different tex question led me to a link regarding a precompiled preamble.

I use arara for all of my runs. What is the correct procedure to use a precompiled preamble for each of the runs made using the arara package?

  • Do you want it not to be used when run without arara? – LaRiFaRi Sep 10 '15 at 11:47
  • To be honest, I probably jumped the gun. I saw the %&mydoc needs to be added to the top of the file, and wondered if it would poorly interact with the arara commands. I'm working it out now that I've recently gotten some free time. – kando Sep 10 '15 at 15:22
