13:43 muixirt newbie question: in the Makefile: cd build && pdflatex book.tex && pdflatex book.tex
13:43 masak aye.
13:43 muixirt why run it twice?
13:44 masak index.
13:44 muixirt index?
13:44 masak LaTeX uses the index file of the last run.
13:44 masak thus, to be sure to get a fresh index, we run it twice.
13:44 muixirt ok, thanks masak
13:44 masak otherwise the page numbers and such might up pointing to the pages of the last run.
13:45 masak np.
13:49 moritz_ actually latex needs up to three passes, in very weird/seldom cases
13:50 m6locks yes, i always run the file three times
13:50 masak I was just thinking about how some weird combination of circumstances might end up producing infinite page numbering loops.
13:51 moritz_ masak: afaict nobody has achieved that yet
13:52 moritz_ it's thinkable, with some floats flapping back and forth
13:52 masak moritz_: I can see why. I am unable to think up a plausible way for it to happen.
