Compiling LaTeX files into readable documents is actually a very involved process. Although CMake comes with FindLATEX.cmake, it does nothing for you other than find the commands associated with LaTeX. I like using CMake to build my LaTeX documents, but creating targets to do it is actually a pain. Thus, I've compiled a bunch of macros that help me create targets in CMake into a file I call "UseLATEX.cmake". Here are some of the things UseLATEX.cmake handles:

  • Runs LaTeX multiple times to resolve links.
  • Can run bibtex, makeindex, and makeglossaries to make bibliographies, indexes, and/or glossaries.
  • Optionally runs configure on your latex files to replace @VARIABLE@ with the equivalent CMake variable.
  • Automatically finds png, jpeg, eps, and pdf files and converts them to formats latex and pdflatex understand.
