Re: how to produce multiple files in one step?

Yes I'm using vista. Yes adding the .tex extension was sufficient. The batch file works now. Ouch! This looks like a pretty nasty bug in MiKTeX. I get 'Unsupported command-line option' for 'latex foo' and for 'latex \input{foo} I get: File `foo.tex' not found. Could you file a bug report with MiKTe...

Re: how to produce multiple files in one step?

From what you describe it looks as if everything works except for the copy statement. I don't know why. Do you have any spaces in the file names? In that case they have to be in double quotes. Try this batch below. It should be more robust and report errors. Make sure that the file names in the for ...

Re: Efficient jpg/png to eps conversion ?

You need to convert to level II or III eps, because level I doesn't support compressed jpeg format, see here for various approaches. I use convert utility from ImageMagick:
  1. convert file.jpg eps3:file.eps

There is a number of latex packages that can be used: pdfpages, booklet, quire (part of midnight package), pgfpages (distributed with pgf package) and perhaps others. Look them up and see which one has the features you want.

Re: %& -parsing first line

Re: %& -parsing first line
