I just noticed that one of the "TeX scripts" by Claus Gerhardt is  
called "pdflatex_acrobat".
According to the "ReadMe" , this script can be used to close and re- 
open a pdf-file in
"Acrobat 6.0.1 Professional" .

My questions :
-does this work under Tiger ?
- can I use it with "Adobe Reader 7.0.5" ?
- can I use it independently of TeXshop . i.e. I just want to run it  
in a bash script ( for Emacs)

I heard somewhere that "Emacs is not Apple-scriptable" or something  
like that.
In the TeX script directory some scripts are called shell scripts ,  
others Apple scripts.
I assume that pdflatex_acrobat is an apple script; could one turn it  
into a shell script ?

What I am really after is a way to use Adobe Reader as a previewer  
with auto-refresh.
