Any change to my project tex files, even those that do not involve bib files or citations, result in biblatex recompiling the bcf and bbl files. How to prevent this behavior in order to save time remaking the project?
I am using the following makefile:
MAIN="file.tex" file.pdf.dummy : *.tex latexmk -xelatex -pv $(MAIN) clean: latexmk -xelatex -C $(MAIN)
$pdf_previewer = "start atril"; $pdf_update_method = 0;
My backend is biber. I tried making the bbl and bcf files immutable, but, biblatex complains that it wants to write to the bcf file and dies.
