I'm a OSX user with BasicTex installed trough Homebrew.

When I used a version tagged like Tex Live 2015 and I had installed LatexMk with had the following binary latexmk.

With this I was able to run latexmk -C and latexmk -pdf -g random.tex.

Now that I have installed the latest version of Tex Live 2016 and installed LatexMk and new binary is available, latex-mk

And the previous command does not work with the new binary.

I have looked into the help pages of latex-mk but did not found which are the new parameters to substitute for.

Any advice? Thanks in advance.

    latex-mk is a different beast than latexmk. – Pieter van Oostrum Nov 21 '16 at 11:53
  • @piet-van-oostrum I understand that the latest version was upgraded, but there is no backward compatibility? I was wondering if the new version allows to reproduce those tasks but with a new "syntax" (aka parameters). – Paulo Oliveira Nov 21 '16 at 14:04
  • No, it is a completely different thing. Try to find latexmk. It is part of TeXlive-2016. – Pieter van Oostrum Nov 21 '16 at 14:28
  • Oh, after the upgrade I did not found the latexmk, so after looking I found latex-mk and thought they were the same. I was wrong, but I did thought that disruptive changes were a strange thing. Anyway, thanks, I will try it to find it. – Paulo Oliveira Nov 21 '16 at 14:49
