Is there a single command which would run bibtex, makeglossary (pdflatex x N ...) etc. automatically?

I could create Makefile but it seems like overkill - is there a command for it? (LuaTeX support would be a plus).

    latexmk can probably do all that, it is a Perl script for fully automated typesetting, and is included in both TeX Live and MikTeX. Or you could check out arara (search this site for some examples). – Torbjørn T. Jan 4 '13 at 16:24

    There's an answer about arara on the proposed duplicate (tex.stackexchange.com/a/77879/86). It has the distinct advantage that the maintainer is nearly always available in the chat here (and is an all-round Good Bloke - not that the maintainers of the other methods aren't, of course). – Loop Space Jan 4 '13 at 16:30

  • You can insert bibtex, makeglossary, etc, to the first code snipppet in my answer. I am assuming that you are using Windows OS. – kiss my armpit Jan 4 '13 at 16:37
  • @JosephWright Whoops! (Though I think this is fairly clear cut). Maciej: if the linked question does not answer your question then please edit this question to clarify what you're looking for, then flag it for reopening and it will be reopened. – Loop Space Jan 4 '13 at 16:41
