synctex — command line client tool to support the Synchronize TeXnology available in most TeX engines.
synctex command [options] [args]
The Synchronization TeXnology is a feature of recent TeX engines. It allows to synchronize between input and output, which means to navigate from the source document to the typeset material and vice versa. Run `synctex help' to access the built-in tool documentation.
TEX ENGINE OPTION -synctex=NUMBER
· If NUMBER=0 or no option is given, no synctex file is created. · If NUMBER<0, synctex files are text files. · If NUMBER>0, synctex files are compressed with gz. · If NUMBER&2, no .gz extension is used. · If NUMBER&4, activate form support, useful for pdftex. · If NUMBER&8, better file compression. Use for example `pdftex -synctex=15 foo.tex' to activate all the options. Notice that LuaTeX option is `--synctex=NUMBER' with two dashes.
The Synchronize TeXnology is essentially due to Jerome Laurens, with useful suggestions by some well known actors of the TeX world.
