Dissertation time! (fun with LaTeX)

UPDATE: Improved the batch file significantly. Enjoy!

I’m moving into exam / dissertation territory now. My updates probably won’t be too frequent until they’re finished in May. Recently I’ve started using LaTeX (or to be more exact, MiKTeX, since I’m a Windows user) and have found it to be most useful as a complete replacement for writing scientific reports using Word.

To simplify the process of compiling a pdf using the MiKTeX package, I’ve written a small batch file that links together all the preparatory processes with ps2pdf. Just download it and then drag and drop the .tex file onto it to get started!

Download make.bat here.

(NOTE – I haven’t tested it extensively, so it may not work as expected – make backups!)
