tbprepare -- starts a new tbook XML project


tbprepare {filename}


tbprepare creates a file with the given filename and the extension `.xml' and fills it with a skeleton document, just to make the start easier. But more importantly it sets up several script files in the current directory with names beginning with 'make'. They are constantly kept up to date with the document and are responsible for all non-trivial material such as bibliography and graphics.


name of the XML file to be created. It must be given without its `.xml' extension.

The output file has the same name as filename but the extension `.xml'. tbprepare assumes that you want to write a book, but adjusting that (to e.g. article) in the XML file is trivial.
