## CTAN has a new package: ShLaTeX

A new package has been installed at tug.ctan.org and should make
its way to your favorite local mirror in the next day or two.

Summary description: LaTeX compilation script for Linux (written in Bash)

Announcement text given by the contribution's author:
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
This script allows to centralize the many program calls necessary to
completely compile a LaTeX document. In particular, the multiple calls
bibliography or an index are carried out automatically. Are also managed
the calls of the programs bibtex and makeindex as well as the vizualisation
of the resulting file (in DVI, PostScript or PDF format) by calling an
external program.
It is possible to stress characters in documents which use the \input and
\include commands to make references to some external files, and that in a
transparent way by compiling only the main source file.
Available in English and French languages.
