If I call TeX from a script, I prefer doing "cd" to the directory with
the files and work in the current directory. It solves a lot of
potential problems. In addition, the script can test the retern code
from "cd" so that it can exit with a reasonable error message if the
directory does not exist. If you try to work with other directories,
you can, of course, implements tests for nonexistent files and
nonexistent -output-directory, but it would IMHO require more code.
