|synctex||command [options] [args]|
The Synchronization TeXnology is a feature of recent TeX engines. It allows one 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. SyncTeX is maintained as part of TeX Live.
