The ELisp function seems to have two faults: the working directory in
the *shell* buffer is not the directory of the TeX and PDF files and
the automatically updated buffer with the PDF file does not switch
into doc-view-mode. But it certainly works! (Some of the tikz2pdf
scripts have a .sh extension which needs to be removed or the ELisp
code updated for this file name.)
You could try this: have one Emacs.app running. Create in it a *shell*
buffer or change directory in an existing *shell* buffer to the
directory with the TeX file. Now launch a new Emacs.app as: "/
Applications/Emacs.app/Contents/MacOS/Emacs <possible arguments> &"
Open in the new instance the TeX file. Now create from it a *shell*
buffer (M-x shell RET) – it will have the right working directory.
Then invoke the split-for-tikz2pdf function and change into the PDF
file buffer, which is in Fundamental mode. Invoke doc-view-mode (M-x
doc-view-mode RET). The PDF image should now become visible, maybe
scroll/jump to the beginning of the buffer.
I tried it with GNU Emacs 24.0.50 based Emacs.app.
The future will be much better tomorrow.
