[background: I am an old unix guy. I use a 4-year old macbook pro, but the newer macbooks seem to become worse (keyboard,touchbar) rather than better. They are now also twice as expensive as the dell xps15 for my needs (ymmv). so I want to try the xps15. I think I can use almost everything I ever need on WSL, except for the following:]
I need an emacs with auctex, and the feature that the pdf file is automatically recompiled and displayed whenever I save the edited file to disk. on macos, I have a script that watches the tex file (and its includes) for changes, and then Skim.app then automatically detects the change and refreshes the window. very convenient. I am too old to want to switch editors.
Emacs exists for Windows, and I can even use it in WSL. Alas, is there a Windows solution that watches tex files and their includes for changes, and updates an open pdf preview window?
