>>The BBEdit and BBEdit Lite plug-ins I released last week have been revised and expanded. The set now contains 17 plug-ins and associated shell scripts. These plug-ins require at least OS 10.1 and have been tested with BBEdit 6.5 and BBEdit Lite 6.1.2. You must have installed teTeX so that it can be run from the Terminal application. The plug-ins allow you to run tex, latex, pdftex, pdflatex, dvips, dvipdfm, ps2pdf, bibtex, and makeindex from BBEdit. The plug-ins are arranged in a sub menu of BBEdit's Tools Menu and you can bind keys to the plug-ins. The scripts called by the plug-ins can be modified by the user to do further processing.
>This is nice. I enjoy the minimalist approach of simply connecting an editor and previewer through a TeX engine that remains largely invisible. It's working fine for me, except the ps previewing is messed up somehow. I got the stuff below on the terminal:
