The 3.21 distribution is now replaced by the 3.21b distribution that
has added the ability to deal with packages that produce multiple
indexes (e.g., multind) automatically as well as multiple
bibliographies (e.g., multibib) and the glossary, glossaries and
nomencl packages that require special handling (the handling for
basic cases is included in the packaging for TeXShop).
Pick up Latexmk321bTeXShop.zip from <http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2/>.
From the documentation supplied with the TeXShop packaging of
Compiling a tex file that contains cross-references, bibliographic
references and/or indexes is a multi-pass process; i.e., you've got
to run (pdf/xe)latex multiple times with possible intermediate runs
of bibtex and/or makeindex until all references are resolved. The
latexmk perl program, rewritten and presently maintained by John
Collins, automates this multi-pass process. By default it first runs
(pdf/xe)latex on a source file, determines file dependencies by
examining the aux file produced by the run and then automatically
runs bibtex and/or makeindex, if needed, and the correct number of
additional runs of (pdf/xe)latex to generate the bibliography, index
and cross-references. This latest version of latexmk, 3.21b, will
also correctly work with the nomencl package as well as the glossary
or glossaries packages and packages that produce multiple
bibliographies or indexes.
Sorry for changing distributions so rapidly but I believe the
additional functionality provided in 3.21b makes it worthwhile.
Hope you find this useful.
