It seems to be a way that, when focused on the reader one can tell it
to reload. That's no good as I want to generate a new PDF from LaTeX
and automatically have it update. So maybe there is a way to modify
that script so it checks for upload ever second and uploads if the
date of the pdf file has changed? Alternatively I would need a way to
kick the reader to wake up and reload.
The reason I'm interested is because I don't use texshop but rather
simply edit my .tex files in vim and then write them out. A program I
developed (and which was rewritten in perl by Jeff Haemer) called
atchange then runs LaTeX/bibTeX automatically for me. I don't want to
have to take my fingers off the keyboard as the display is refreshed!
That takes time - thousands of times a day ...
