NAME

     synctex — command line client tool to support the Synchronize TeXnology available in most
     TeX engines.

SYNOPSIS

     synctex command [options] [args]

OVERVIEW

     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.

AUTHOR

     The Synchronize TeXnology is essentially due to Jerome Laurens, with useful suggestions by
     some well known actors of the TeX world.
